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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Korean Cheese Pizza Dance Goes Viral

I've been writing for years that dairy products were finding a new home in Asia, traditionally a series of cultures that avoided using milk in their cuisines. The same genetics are involved that make America a dairy culture. Many people with mild lactose intolerance can have some dairy without symptoms.

Even back when I wrote Milk Is Not for Every Body I mentioned that Pizza Hut was putting up cheese factories in Thailand to meet a growing demand. Now Asia is poised to take over the world with their catchy pizza commercials. Let's see. Cute young girls, lots of bare leg, robotic dancing with instructions, and backwards pizza eating. Don Draper would eat his fedora to have done this.

Just so you know, Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pizza has 350 calories and 13 grams of fat per slice without any toppings. So if you want to look anything like the girls in the commercials, stop at one slice.
