PODIATRIST, DR. CORINNE KAUDERER STATES, "FLIP-FLOPS ARE MORE OF A MATTER OF FASHION SENSE - OR LACK THEREOF. BUT HERE IS WHERE THINGS GET KIND OF DICEY: I REMEMBER WALKING ON A STEEP MOUNTAIN IN CALIFORNIA AND SEEING OTHER CLIMBERS WEARING FLIP-FLOPS, AND FALLING OUT OF THEM.  FLIP-FLOPS MAY BE BETTER THAN GOING BAREFOOT, BUT EVEN SO, MUCH OF YOUR FOOT IS EXPOSED TO DIRT AND BACTERIA, WHICH INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING AN INFECTION. IN FACT, A 2009 TODAY SHOW REPORT FOUND THAT MORE THAN 18,000 TYPES OF BACTERIA WERE DISCOVERED IN ONE PAIR OF FLIP-FLOPS, INCLUDING BACTERIA TRACES FROM FECAL MATTER.  FOR THOSE WITH DIABETES, IT'S ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS, SINCE THEY ARE AT AN EVEN HIGH RISK OF INFECTION,"

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
