    Re: tolerant to tolerant of

    Both seem to be used, but "of" is much more frequent.

    Re: tolerant to tolerant of

    I would use "of" but it's a strange sentence. We normally talk of those who are lactose intolerant.

    You normally talk about those who have a condition, not those who didn't.
