Prehistoric Cheese Mongers
Posted by Gordon Smith

Another reminder that cheese is awesome:

In prehistoric times, when almost every adult was lactose-intolerant, the invention of cheese-making offered herders a way to turn fresh whole cow's milk into a food that they could consume without getting ill, experts said. Cheese contains far less lactose than milk. Moreover, cheese, which normally takes up a tenth of the volume of the milk from which it is made, is easier to store, transport and preserve.

From the comments: "Cheese historians whey in."
