Robert Cohen, Executive Director of the Dairy Education Board, wrote in an article titled "Lactose Intolerance" on (accessed Dec. 15, 2006):

“Fifty million Americans experience intestinal discomfort after consuming milk…Symptoms include stomach pain, gas, and diarrhea.

Most adults ‘lack’ the enzyme, lactase, to break down lactose. Instead, lactose is broken down by bacteria in the lower intestines. Their own body wastes combine with those sugars to ferment into toxins causing bloating and cramps.

Once a correct diagnosis [of lactose intolerance] is established, there is a simple cure: NOTMILK!”
