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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Sports Illustrated might include this headline in their "sign of the apocalypse" series, but I see it as encouraging that this year's New Jersey State Dairy Princess is lactose intolerant.

Terry Wright's story on tells us that:

Molly Boyle, 17-year-old daughter of Marianne Andrulewich and Richard Boyle of Raritan Township, is the 2009-10 New Jersey Dairy Princess. She was crowned during the recent centennial celebration of the N.J. Holstein-Friesian Association at the Neshanic Valley Country Club.

Molly won partly by creating a 3-a-Day Puzzle for first and second graders that yielded a message on healthy living when the pieces were put together. She gave a speech on "Lactose Intolerance in the Dairy Industry" that apparently detailed how one can be lactose intolerant and still have dairy regularly. Good for her.

And boo to reporter Wright, who needs to have a long talk with Ms. Boyle. She does emphatically not have a "milk allergy." That would prohibit her from consuming dairy. I bet she knows the difference between lactose intolerance and dairy allergy. Get the facts. Get the facts straight. The Dairy Queen does.
