Anyway, I nearly did die I think, but now I am in the process of relactication, slowly intaking a small amount of dairy every day to build up tolerance.
I am really surprised at the levels of intolerance in Southern Europe. I am certainly an acception to the rule as I could skull a full liter in one go when I was a teenager. I still drink milk straight from the bottle.
I am CT for rs4988235, meaning unlikely to be lactose intolerant.

My ancestry is from areas that are green on the map, and though I don't find myself doubled over after drinking milk or eating ice cream, I do get very nauseated. I still drink it regularly though; I never mentioned to my parents that it made me sick so they didn't stop giving it to me every morning.
I'm probably Lactose Intolerent because it starts of my alergies like when I eat cheese or othe dairy products.
All my ancestry is from the green areas and I'm highly Lactose tolerant.
I consume milk daily, don't know of a case of lactose intolerance in my family either.
If I consume milk products over a long period of time the symptoms above subside, but I am instead treated to bleeding in my colon.
