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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

LI Celebrity Alert: Michael Rasmussen

The Danish cycler Michael Rasmussen is leading the Tour de France after the eighth stage on Sunday in France.

In the The Guardian, Julien Pretot wrote:

Rasmussen had thought for a long time he could do well in the mountains if he lost weight. He is allergic to lactose and often refuses to drink during a climb in order to keep his weight down.

Allergic to lactose? Those UK writers never get that right, do they?
