Dairy Intolerance

Dairy intoleranceIn some people dairy products cause allergic reactions from sinus to glue ear to abdominal pain. The main area seems to be the respiratory system due to large mucous forming properties of dairy. Other areas where excess mucous can be a problem is the gastro-intestinal tract which is coated with mucous and therefore prevents nutrients from being absorbed and gastric juices secreted.
