    Why do Middle Easterners have high levels of Lactose intolerance yet many livestock were domesticated there, and also the first collection of Milk happened at Mesopotamia (Iraq)..?

    Probably lacked the pressure to rely on dairy that people in colder climates had?

    In other words, there were other sources of Vitamin D.
    More sunlight would improve natural conversion so external sources were not required.
    That seems to be the feeling of many involved with other phenomena against which Vitamin D may help protect.

    In other words, he is, like me, lactase persistent genetically, and I know from experience that he also has no problems with milk and other dairy products.
    Gotta feed him those Banana Milk-Shake with Whole Milk for Diamond Bones.

    Well, I am lactose tolerant which feels good, Probably because all of my ancestors were farmers who raised livestock (Sheep, Cattle and Goats) and consumed dairy products daily

    Apparently Somalis/Cushites have our own LP-associated allele G-14009 (rs869051967).The Beja have it around 23% but I have a feeling Somalis probably have it at a much higher frequency due to obvious fact Arabs did not affect us genetically the way they did in the Sudan.

    Perhaps you also have camel raising bedouin ancestors? Check out what you get on the Arabian rs41380347
