Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
I am lactose intollerant, however I am able to eat pizza that is made with fresh mozzarella vs regular cheese. Is there a difference in digestion?

I know fresh urine can be cloudy and this isn't dangerous. but cheese causes it now, never did before, all my life. Why does it now make urine cloudy?
Acidity, fluids, etc: The main reasons for clear vs cloudy urine are nutrition and fluid intake. Certain normal urine chemicals may be more or less dissolved as urine concentration and acidity change.

There : There is a possibility that your hair loss could be from your diet (iron deficiency) or it could be from another cause such as a thyroid disorder, hereditary hair loss, over styling, a scalp condition, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or even lupus.
