What is lactose-intolerance ?

“Lactose intolerance is a common digestive problem where the body is unable to digest lactose, a type of sugar mainly found in milk and dairy products. It is caused by a shortage of the enzyme lactase, which is needed to break down lactose so it can be absorbed into the bloodstream.”
