9 OUT 10 WOMEN WEAR SHOES THAT ARE TOO SMALL FOR THEM!  THE ANCIENT ROMANS WERE THE FIRST TO MAKE DISTINCT LEFT AND RIGHT SHOES.  BEFORE THAT, SHOES COULD BE WORN ON ANY FOOT.  SHOE SIZES WERE DEVELOED IN ENGLAND BY KING EDWARD II WHO DECLARED IN 1324 THAT THE DIAMETER OF ONE BARLEY CORN - A THIRD OF AN INCH- WOULD REPRESENT ONE SHOE SIZE.  THAT'S STILL TRUE TODAY.  THE FEET CAN CONTRACT AN ARRAY OF NASTY DISEASES FROM COMMUNAL SHOWERS: PLANTAR WARTS, ATHLETES FOOT, RING WORM, ETC.  WALKING BAREFOOT CAN CAUSE PLANTAR WART AS THE VIRUS CAN ENTER THROUGH A CUT.  THE PRESSURE ON THE FEET WHEN RUNNING CAN BE AS MUCH AS 4 TIMES AS MUCH AS THE RUNNERS BODY WEIGHT.  THERE ARE CURRENTLY MORE WEBSITES ON THE INTERNET HAVING TO DO WITH FOOT FETISHES THAN FOOT HEALTH.  ABOUT 6% OF NORTH AMERICANS HAVE TOENAIL PROBLEMS IN A GIVEN YEAR.  ARTHRITIS IS THE NUMBER CAUSE OF DISABILITY IN NORTH AMERICANS.  IT LIMITS EVERYDAY DRESSING, CLIMBING STAIRS, GETTING IN AND OUT OF BED OR WALKING FOR OVER 10 MILLION PEOPLE.
