Avoiding Dairy Can Be Hazardous

It's estimated that 12% of the U.S. population suffers from some degree of lactose sensitivity. According to a panel of experts assembled by the National Institutes of Health, even those people should not avoid nutrient-rich dairy products entirely. Doing so could have an adverse effect on their diet and general health.

The experts recommended that people who suspect they might have lactose-related issues, select low-fat or fat-free milk products and drink them with meals or a snack, not on an empty stomach. Consuming small, frequent portions is another approach. Finally, there are lactose-free milks available at grocery stores.
