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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Get a Kick in Your Dairy-Air

Connie Goff, of the Maryville MO, Daily Forum, wrote a little promotional article celebrating the opening of Maria Jones' Sweet Dairy-Air soft-serve ice cream store.

Why would I be mentioning it here? Because of the following astounding sentence:

Flavor Burst ice cream is a lactose product, so those with lactose intolerance problems will find that it will be just the right treat for them.

That doesn't even make sense if you put a "not" in there. (Why would anyone phrase it to say "it will not be just the right treat"?) Could she have possibly meant that Flavor Burst ice cream is a lactose-free product? I doubt it. I searched their web site and found no evidence that that might be true.

Just another day of my scratching my head over the weirdness of the world.
