Worst place to live if lactose intolerant

I moved to Jerusalem this past summer, and as someone sensitive to dairy products - this country is killing me. The dairy products here are just too good. Cheeses (soft and hard), ice cream, milk, even the cottage cheese....its all plotting my intestinal demise. So while I'm ranking Israel as fantastically evil place on the dairy front - what other places rank as least hospitable to those who shouldn't indulge in (too much) dairy.

            The US of A is the best place to live if you are intolerant to lactose or allergic to any food, what with the astounding abundance of foodstuffs in every variety imaginable, all laid out in convenient giant supermarkets, many open 24 hours a day . There's not a country on earth that comes close.

          2. Germany: There are at least 15 types of cream, for starters
            France: all of the 356+ cheeses
