113. Galactose does do a great deal, however ...
I checked out the Dr MacRobert site. He does make an awful lot of claims without giving any evidence, so anything he says is pretty suspect. Checking back, it becomes obvious this is a "snake-oil" site, existing only to help market glyconutrients, with many "doctors" making unsupportable claims.

I would have liked to believe his statement about galactose having a role to play in preventing influenza, but when he gives no source for the information and there in not one single piece of information on the net to back up his claim, one can only dismiss it as false advertising.

One's scepticism is increased by the fact that there are no reported deaths from H5N1 amongst the Chinese population at all. To date all the recorded deaths have been from Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.

BTW, galactose is abundantly present in a large variety of vegetables, and is also made by your body, so avoiding dairy products should not cause a deficiency.
