Normal to be lactose intolerant?

Those who could not digest milk were once called “lactose intolerant” or “lactase deficient.” They are now regarded as normal, while those adults who retain the enzymes allowing them to digest milk are called “lactase persistent.”

Found this really interesting. In other words.. to be able to digest milk is not normal..and in fact means..we have inherited a genetic mutation!
