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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

12th Annual Food Allergy Awareness Week Starts Today

This year's Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) runs from May 10 through May 16. The theme is "Take Action, Prevent Reactions."

FAAW is organized by FAAN, the Food Awareness & Anaphylaxis Network.

The site suggests:

Mark the week by increasing awareness at schools, talking to your elected representatives, or planning a fundraiser. You can hand out fliers, put up posters, or display educational materials. Download materials to get involved!

Our goal for 2009 is to receive proclamations from all 50 states. We already have proclamations from: Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
