Everyone loves cheese, except for those poor, poor souls who are lactose intolerant. Ah, who are we kidding, even lactose intolerant people love cheese, it's just their bodies will despise them later. Since everyone loves cheese, it may come as no surprise that cheese is the most shoplifted food in the United States of America. Cheese is stolen at a much higher rate than other foods for a myriad of reasons. One reason is that it can be seen as overpriced, and another is that most cheeses are small and easily concealable.
