While 4% of the population suffers from diagnosed lactose intolerance, it is estimated that a staggering 50 million Americans suffer from some degree of dairy intolerance/allergy. Moreover, recent research has linked milk protein (casein) to cancer and autoimmune illnesses and found evidence that our bodies quit making the enzymes necessary to digest milk as we age—thus setting up those who consume a dairy-rich diet for IBS, allergies and other autoimmune and digestive difficulties. Dairy has become the "new gluten"—something that people are realizing needs to be minimized in our diet whether they have a formally diagnosed allergy or not.
