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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

The Facts, Avoided

Mary Lee Stotler wrote that Even fake sweeteners ought to be avoided.

She asks:

As I waited in line at the drive-thru last week, I heard the woman behind me order a supersized meal with a sandwich and large fries, and then order a diet soft drink.

In what universe does that make sense?

I have a question myself. In what universe does washing that meal down with gallons of sugared water make better sense?

Her column is called The Facts.

We've gotten beyond satire and irony, folks.
