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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Tony's Lactose Free Cookbook

While I'm talking about the UK, I need to put in a mention for Tony's Lactose Free Cookbook, by Professor Anthony K Campbell and Stephanie B Matthews.

The website tells us that the book includes:

• Tony’s remarkable story
• What is lactose, lactase and lactose intolerance?
• Why 4000 million people can’t digest lactose properly
• The scandal of ‘hidden’ lactose in food and drink
• How to tell if you or your family are lactose intolerant
• Tables and figures with vital facts and scientific data about lactose

• Over 100 mouth watering recipes for starters, main courses and desserts
• Tony’s cooking tips, as well as do's and dont's
• A wine suggestion with every dish
• Soya and milk substitutes

• The extraordinary explanation of the illness that affected Charles Darwin for over 40 years
• How this story is going to revolutionise modern medicine

• A comprehensive reading list
• Colour photos of some of the recipes
• Useful web sites
• A bibliography for further reading

The Welston Press appears to be their own self-publishing empire, almost all of it about lactose. Ones that we would be most interested in include:

I thought that I had added this book to my site a long time ago, but possibly I heard about it before it was available and then let it slip my mind. Thanks to Georgina for reminding me. I think - there goes my memory again - that this is the first UK lactose intolerance book of any kind, so it's a major step from them over there.
