      It is, without a shadow of a doubt, an ad. Blocking this shitty meme community. Btw, off topic and no offense, but I thought you were woefully miscast in The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. Cheers!

    Intolerance doesn’t kill people…why do people.always seem so shocked when people still want dairy when they just get upset stomachs and wanna shit after…makes no sense to question it.

      “Wanna shit” is a bit of an understatement for what happens, but yeah, just take a 9000 unit lactase pill every 30 minutes while consuming it and you’ll be fine. Or maybe two pills if you’re eating a LOT of cheese.

        Ripened cheese (eg cheddar, Emmental, Monterey Jack, Parmesan, Brie…) usually does not have any significant amount of lactose left. The ripening process gets rid of it. If you are lactose intolerant you just need to avoid fake/processed „cheese“ and fresh cheeses (eg mozzarella, ricotta, cream cheese). That said, taking lactase pills when it’s not necessary will not hurt you, just your wallet.

            If you can get lactose free milk where you live (which in and of itself is a godsend), then you can make lactose free mozzarella from it, just follow online videos for meeting your own mozzarella (it takes like 30 mins and you can freeze it)

          Interestingly parmesan in any quantity over a couple of grams still messes me up, it really depends on the person

            Have you considered histamine intolerance? Real Parmesan should have next to no lactose left. Generally longer aging means less lactose, but more histamine. And Parmesan is aged at least 12 months.

        Also might be worth looking into products made from A2A2 milk. My friends are lactose intolerant and they can drink and eat products made from A2A2 without pills or any problem.

      also, there’s pills.

      i read, “bactose” is a very good pill. it’s unfortunately unavailable in my region, so i can’t test it 🙁

      // edit: changed typo “bactase” to “bactose”

        Also be aware that lactose intolerance is not the same thing as lactose allergy. There’s no pill that can help with the latter and milk can fuck you up for several days. So it’s not ”just and upset tummy”. It’s much more complicated than that and some people, though they are only intolerant, the pills still don’t help them at all. Fox example, people with diverticulitis, the pills will not help, the colon will still be gravely upset.

          An actual allergy to lactose is extremely rare. More likely, you’ll be allergic to some protein in dairy products.

          No, “bactose” is a product name. It’s bacteria pills that produce lactase. I put a typo in it tho and will try and correct my other comment.

            My bad

            Lactase is the “ingredient”, so you may find a generic brand. I use lactaid or the kirkland brand but I was able to find lactase in Mexico when we forgot our pills during a trip

    Lactose intolerance is the norm for humans. Somehow this doesn’t get communicated since practically no one knows it. Up until somewhat recently all humans were lactose intolerant. Iirc tolerance started with starving Europeans making full use of cows a few thousand years ago, then over time people became able to tolerate it.

    Experts estimate that about 68 percent of the world’s population has lactose malabsorption.

    Source: https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/digestive-diseases/lactose-intolerance/definition-facts

    All that to say yeah, it’s a very common condition and most people who have it probably still eat lactose as it’s not all that bad to get the shits. Come on, it’s cheese and ice cream we’re talking about here. And pizza. Even if the consequences were awful, humans are also pretty good at ignoring consequences when deciding if they want something they really like

      But how are those percentages distributed globally? If the 32% mostly resides within middle/west europe and american continents with a minority in Asia it totally makes sense why we have that understanding in the west.

        Not everyone in the West is fully European, but even if they were, a significant portion of even those people are lactose intolerant. I mentioned the global stat 1) because it was available 2) to illustrate the point that just because we evolved something recently doesn’t make it the standard way for a person to be.

          I understood that.
          But if you have the majority of the minority in one place the perspective is skewed towards thinking the minority is actually in the majority even if it isnt.

            The vast majority of humans are lactose intolerant. I sort of get your point but mine still stands. Especially considering in America the percentage is 36% even though we are by majority white still

            https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/lactose-intolerance-by-country

            Sort that data and you’ll see a lot of countries even higher.

            I think the real reason this issue is not known about is because it involves poop and that’s a taboo topic that embarrasses people.

            Growing up, and still today, if I just went by popular discourse, it would seem to be less than 10%

    • Lactase persistence has actually evolved around a dozen times independently. Most of the genes originated in Africa, but the one Europeans have evolved in the Indus valley area before the Indo-aryan people migrated to Europe.

        Do you find high sugar bothers you in general? If the pills don’t do anything you might have an intolerance for some specific form of sugar. I have a fructose malabsorption and it sucks because I also have a sweet tooth, haha.
