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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Craig Ferguson Loves Lactose Intolerance

Did I just say fart jokes?

We made Craig Ferguson's monolog!

If you watch Craig regularly (he's the host of the Late Late Show, the one following Letterman), you know that he can't resist a fart joke. He'll grab whatever topic he's rambling on about and wrench it totally off its foundations if he can get a fart joke out of it. So of course he's mentioned lactose intolerance about a million times.

Never in a thousand million zillion years did it occur to me that he'd hear about the NIH Conference on LI. I forget about those 249 newspaper articles. He made the conference the centerpiece of his monolog last Wednesday night (or technically Thursday morning). Yes, I'm just catching up with last week's programs. (The conference made a mess of a life that at its best is 10 pounds of entropy in a five pound bag.)

YouTube to the rescue. I've embedded that portion of the monolog here. The lactose-y stuff starts at about 2:10.
