: : The reason those things exist is that they made it possible for many adults to digest at least somedairy who otherwise had big problems with it.

: : When northern Europeans started developing lactose tolerance after adding dairy to their diet, their mortality rate started to plummet, since it solved the problem of getting adequate nutrition in a hostile climate for those who could digest it. It was such an advantage that recent DNA studies show that in just 2000 years, lactose tolerance went from less than 10% of the population to almost 70% as a result.

: : And then those 6-foot milk-drinking Vikings came barreling out of the north and gave everyone else a ton of grief. No wonder so many other cultures started fermenting milk into kefir and yogurt and aging cheeses in caves until they could eat them without their stomachs griping. You gotta keep up with the Joneses...and the Ragnarsons. :)
