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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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 Olympics Watch - Emily Caruso

From the Waterbury, CT Republican-American:

America’s best hope for a medal in women’s shooting might also be its smallest Olympian.

Fairfield native Emily Caruso stands just 5-foot-2, but she’s been a big shot in her sport for the past eight years, winning the national championship in the women’s 10-meter air rifle event five times.


Caruso, 29, isn’t your average shooter. She doesn’t hunt (although she doesn’t oppose doing it for food) and is a vegetarian (partly because she’s lactose intolerant).

Of course, some members of the women's gymnastics team are much shorter, but let's not hold that against her. And she's also 31, having been born in 1977. But I'm sure that the rest of the article contains many sentences that are correct.
