Dairy Princess Is Lactose Intolerant

ELMA, Wash. (AP) — Laurel Gordon of Washington state has been putting on a tiara to promote milk products the past two years as Grays Harbor County’s dairy ambassador.

The funny thing is, the 18-year-old from Elma is a lactose intolerant dairy princess.

The Daily World of Aberdeen reports that unless Gordon takes special pills, her body is unable to digest milk, so she drinks soy milk.

But her family operates a dairy farm that has been in the family for 150 years, and she believes in the product.

She’s competing for the Washington state dairy ambassador title in June.
