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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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 Athlete: Cedric Bond

A world-class kayaker at 16, Cedric Bond is heading off to Russia for the 2008 Junior World Test Regatta.

Marques Hunter of the Peninsula Gateway in Gig Harbor, WA, wrote that "Bond is a budding All-American. He plans to train for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, as well as the 2016 games. By then, he’ll be in his prime in his mid-20s."

And he doesn't eat dairy, although he's not vegan:

One important aspect that plays into Bond’s love for kayaking is taking care of his body. About half of the foods he eats are organic. Bond ingests eggs, fruit, bagels and bananas, and doesn’t get his protein from dairy because he’s lactose intolerant.

The night before a big regatta, he’ll east [sic] pasta and occasionally eat a steak because of its high protein value.

After a strenuous workout, Bond takes a recovery drink that contains the right mixture of carbohydrates and protein.
