"Finland, stop, your condition!"
"Fuck you, I do what I want! *slams thirtieth cup of milk*"

That's possible because of a handy thing called lactose-free milk.

And that is why Finland is the best makers of lactose free dairy products.

This fact is genuinely fun. I grew up in a family that had milk as a standard drink with every meal, regardless of age (unless it was a holiday meal, in which case wine). I didn't notice until I was a teenager eating at friends' houses that this was totally abnormal for my region. I began to wonder where it came from. Well, I can keep guessing-- my family is French and German, so who knows! But it's really cool that there's a country in the world where that's perfectly normal.

They just ingnore the fact that the most of them maybe can't drink milk. "naw man. I just found out that I am lactose intolerant.... Nah, whatever. I love milk."

the "high" lactose intolerance-rate probably has to do with how much milk products there are in Finland. Lactose intolerance gets more easily diagnosed because of the all lactose products people eat.

In practice most countries actually have a lot more people who are unable to eat milk products.

17% might sound high but it's actually far lower than in most parts of the world.
