Milk Is Not for Every Body has in it everything that I've learned about Lactose Intolerance in twenty years of researching the subject, brought up to date. It's a complete, top-to-bottom rewrite of my first book, No Milk Today, and all the research articles, all the interviews, all the supermarket legwork is completely redone.

    4. Nutrients: Good Health with or without Lactose
    5. Lactose Digestion: The Inside Story
    6. The Wonderful World of Dairy Products--
    7. --And How to Eat Them
    8. The Lactase Phase
    9. A Cornucopia of Nondairy Alternatives
    10. Good News from Washington: Nutrition and Ingredients Labeling
    11. Milk on Aisle 1, and 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,...
    12. Eating In and Dining Out
    13. Doctors, Diagnoses, Drugs and Diseases
