Scientists Work to Unravel Riddle of Lactose Intolerance
Thursday, February 18, 2010 (2422 reads)

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, part of the National Institutes of Health, will hold its first conference on the topic next week.
It is unusual for people to lose the ability to digest a nutrient as they age.
