Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

My LI Links Page Updated

Told ya I wasn't abandoning my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse. I just put some time and effort into updating my LI Links page.

That page has dozens of links about matters I don't cover directly on my site. That includes subjects like calcium, multiple food allergies, celiac disease, osteoporosis, and veganism. There are also some sites on lactose intolerance itself that have information worth pursuing.

In addition, I've been trying to gather links to all the important sites based in other countries that talk about these issues. I have links to sites in Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany. Most of these sites are relatively new. Lactose intolerance became an issue in the U.S. long before it did elsewhere, but the rest of the world is fast catching up.

What surprised me is how few links had gone bad over the two years since my last update. In the early days of the Net, links would go missing all the time as people stopped maintaining sites. Today sites have much more permanency. The Net is maturing, and the information it provides gets better all the times. What it lacks most, though, is context, and that's one of the things I aim to provide.

I did some Googling and found a dozen new links to enter onto that page, bringing the total to 67. Or 69. Somewhere around there. I'll be talking about some of them here on the blog over the next few days.

As always, the disclaimer. These are just sites I've found on the Net. They appear to have useful information, but I can't vouch for everything they say or contain. If you have a site you think I missed, let me know about it.
