    So lactose is a type of sugar, like dextrose fructose etc, and its common in milk and some people are intolerant to it?

    is there any reason for lactose tolerant people to avoid lactose?

    today i was in a big hurry going to the gym and i could nÚt bring a post workout meal, so i took a litre of skim milk from the supermarket and downed that after my workout.

    bad, real bad, good?

    I know milk isn`t bad stuff but still i often hear the word lactose in a negative context.

    About 75% of African Americans are lactose intolerant, cause they lack the enzyme lactase, which converts lactose into glucose and galactose, this may lead to cramps, gas, and other intestinal discomforts. If you do not have any symtoms after comsuming milk, than it shouldn't be a prob
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Lactose is low glycemic so if your not lactose intolerant drink up on that milk, saying it is a sugar refers to its structure and does not imply it will act the same way as dextrose and fructose.
