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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Lactose Intolerance Sabotages Olympics!

Or at least it did for Becky Lyne.

Becky was competing for the Olympics for Britain's track team in the 800 meter event. She came in last.


According to South Yorkshire's The Star:

"The race did not go to plan," said the former Tapton School student. "I am not happy with my performance; it was not good.

"I have struggled all season with lactose intolerance and it affected my performance - I am not sure what to do next."

Don't you just hate it when lactose intolerance keeps you out of the Olympics?
