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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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.

Vegetarian Travel and Restaurants

When I updated my Li Links page, I added a new section called World Links. These are links to sites that aren't concentrated on just one country, but either apply to many countries or are aimed at travelers.

Traveling with a food problem, like lactose intolerance or milk allergy, is a pain and a constant irritation. You can't take all your food with you, and you have to eat several times a day. Besides, one of the pleasures of travel is trying the local delicacies and specialties. Anything that can be done to make the experience more pleasurable deserves a highlight.

One such page is Questions About Vegetarian Travel and Restaurants from the Vegetarian Resource Group. That page contains questions and answers in an FAQ format, along with links to many other pages that give additional information.

One problem with the page is that it indiscriminately mixes up info for vegetarians and for vegans. While all vegan information is automatically good for those of us with dairy issues, not all the vegetarian info is. You have to be cautious when reading.

The page also hasn't been updated in a very long time, but remarkably most if not all the links are still live, so feel free to click around for more current info.
