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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

You'd think I had a crush on Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero by the number of times they've been mentioned here. I posted about their book, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and their tv show and web site Post Punk Vegans and a few more times besides.

Well, tough. They have a new vegan cookbook out and even though it was officially released just today it already has 15 five-star reviews on Amazon. And no lesser-starred reviews.

The book is Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, published in hardcover by Marlowe & Company, with a list price of $27.50.
