Good article

Second paragraph:

"What seems to have happened is that one person stated that this was true and a bunch of people who didnít know any better simply started repeating it until it became an accepted Ďtruthí. "

What do "this" and "it" refer to?

Sixth paragraph"

"For anybody whoís interested, Iíve included the referenced cited in this section at the end of the article."

Should be references

Seventh paragraph of the conclusion:

"However, as I noted above, if you eat something and nearly die, you know all you need to know anyhow. At least in the case of extreme food allergies."

That second sentence has no verb.

thanks

Thanks, here's the fixed second para

**
What seems to have happened is that one person stated that certain ideas were true and a bunch of people who didn't know any better simply started repeating those ideas until they became an accepted 'truth'. Unfortunately, science says different and that's what I'm going to look at.

Hogwash. If you have a milk allergy, you can drink lactaid.

This actually made me laugh out loud. Fantastic article as always. Always look forward to my Tues/Friday lunch break coming out of lab.

Lactaid does not alter milk allergy, it helps digest lactose which is a sugar.

If lactose is not properly digested (because your intestines lack the appropriate enzyme lactase) it causes bloating, gas and possibly diarrhea. Lactaid contains the enzyme lactase and helps digest lactose.

True milk allergy (allergy to milk protein) is not frequently seen but if an individual is allergic to milk protein Lactaid is useless.

As Lyle clearly stated in his article many individuals confuse intolerance (lactose intolerance) with allergy. You apparently are one of those individuals, unless of course you simply trying to be facetious.

That's probably why he used the smiley.

Yes, I was being facetious. Lyle had to set someone straight on an 'intolerance' thread earlier this week about lactaid. I'm just trying to remind Lyle he's surrounded by crazy people. Me included.


On a side note.** The comment about the peanuts in the article made me laugh too.
