Can lactose intolerant people drink raw milk?

I read an article in Acres USA about the battle in California for the raw milk farmers. There's a rule pending requiring all milk producers to have less than 10 ppm coliform in their milk, which is near impossible for raw milk farmers not to mention they wouldn't want to get it that low. Some coliform is beneficial. Anyway, in the article they claim that there's a study out there showing kids who suffer from lactose intolerance can drink raw milk with no effects. Does anyone know about this study or where to find it? It would be very interesting to find some science behind this claim.

yes yes...when milk is not pasturized ...which will leave all the natural enzymes that usually are gone when pastuarized ...those are beneficial enzymes that will aide in digestion...how can a baby be nurtured if there lactose intolerance...
