Umm... The obvious hypothesis here is that shitting your brains out (along with the other symptoms like nausea, fullness, etc) causes malabsorption and reduced "effective" calorie absorption, along with reduced *actual* calorie intake due to chronic nausea and thus decreased risk of DM2.

This is stupid. It's like saying cancer reduces or improves glycemic control in diabetics on a population level. Well, of course it does, but it also tends to kill you.

Useful, but for the fact that it makes those low in lactase shit themselves, no?

Perhaps that's the price we have to pay to avoid type 2 diabetes?
