I was wondering about lactose intolerance. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with it and was asking me questions I just don't have the answer to. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. These are some of the questions she had: How does your body break down lactose? Why do some people have a lactose intolerance? Does your body really think that lactose is a poision? Is that why it makes you so sick? Is there anything that I can do to enjoy dairy again? Any comments?
