From my very basic understanding, the Asian populace, specifically Chinese, are more likely to be lactose intolerant. The question is whether it is due to environmental or genetic factors or a combination of both.
I cut out dairy and sugar quite effectively although I have seen my share of trying times. For instance, I got a new room mate that eats like an 8 year would if they were capable of buying their own groceries (i.e. "fun foods" such as cereal and other high fructose corn syrup treats.) Being human, I have indulged in these confections on the rare occasion.
Well, it has caught up with me. I first noticed the problem after consuming Palak Paneer with yogurt and my stomach did not agree with it. That has never happened before. After testing the waters and consuming dairy a few other times the same thing happened!
I feel as though I developed a greater sensitivity to these foods. I have an inflamed black head on my nose today from bingeing on parmesan cheese. I thought I could get away with it as I have in the past but nope.
I'm wondering if the theory that developing sensitives to food after abstaining from them over a large period of time holds any weight? Does anyone care to shed some light on the topic through personal experience or scholarly articles? I haven't found much online.
