Feet are very important, as they are foundation for our bodies. The foot is one of the most overworked, under-appreciated parts of the human body. Here are some facts about human foot:
Humans have worn shoes for a very long time - About 40,000 years ago, according to research from Washington University. Older specimens had thicker, stronger toes, likely from gripping the ground as they walked barefoot. That’s around the same time that the archaeological record shows a burst of artistic and technological advancements among early humans, including the first stone tools, which may have aided in the production of shoes. The oldest preserved shoes, incidentally, is 5500 years old and was found in an Armenian cave, buried in sheep dung.
One quarter of your body’s bones are in your feet. Each normal foot has 33 joints, 26 bones, 19 muscles, and 107 ligaments. it is a complex and highly evolved mechanism. They can support your entire weight, while also performing rigorous tasks including running, jumping and climbing.
Skin on the soles of your feet is thicker than it is anywhere else on you, and the cells divide more frequently in response to pressure and friction.
Feet are one of the most ticklish parts of the body.
Walking is the best exercise for your feet, and it’s also a great way to get overall exercise for your body: it boosts circulation and helps you burn calories.
