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 and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at

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.

Myths About Lactose Intolerance

Since I complain so loudly when people get the facts about lactose intolerance wrong, it's only fair that I compliment the ones who get them right.

The Daily Advertiser of Lafayette, LA, published an unfortunately uncredited article, Learn the truth about lactose intolerance, that debunked some common myths about LI and also gave a list of "Easy Ways to Enjoy Milk and Milk Products If You're Lactose Intolerant."

All the advice is straight from the book (i.e. my book: Milk Is Not for Every Body) so it looks good. And they credit the information to the LSU AgCenter, which means that even doctors, notoriously slow to understand LI, have finally caught on.

Good work, all.
