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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Food Allergies for Dummies

When you search Amazon for books on multiple allergies, the newest one that comes up is Food Allergies For Dummies, by Robert A. Wood and Joe Kraynak.

The reviews for it are all five-star. And the contents look to be just what people need.

Book Description

Are you constantly worrying about what you or your loved ones eat? Is every dining experience an episode of anxiety for you? Being allergic to different types of food not only ruins the experience of eating, it can lead to dangerous, sometimes lethal, consequences.

With Food Allergies for Dummies, you can feel safer about what you eat. This concise guide shows you how to identify and avoid food that triggers reactions. This guide covers how to care for a child with food allergies, such as getting involved with his/her school’s allergy policies, packing safe lunches, and empowering him/her to take responsibility for his allergy. You will also discover:

▪ The signs and symptoms of food allergies
▪ How to determine the severity of your allergy
▪ Ways to eat out and travel with allergies
▪ How to create your own avoidance diet
▪ Ways to enjoy your meal without allergic symptoms
▪ How to prevent food allergies from affecting your child
▪ The latest research being done to treat food allergies

And Joe Kraynak wrote on his Amazon blog:
In the article we wrote for Kids With Food Allergies called "Debunking Alternative Tests and Therapies," we reveal the truth behind the claims that practitioners of these tests and treatments often make, and we warn you to be careful of what you read on the Internet. Some sites offer excellent information, while others can lead you down a very frustrating, expensive, and even dangerous path.

In Food Allergies For Dummies, we devote an entire chapter to this important topic.

Debunking nonsense alternative therapies. That's what I like to hear.
