1. The average person walks up to about 160 000 kilometres, in their lifetime, enough to walk around the earth 4 times. That works out to around 6 and a half kilometres a day.
2. Every step we make can exert a pressure on your feet that exceeds our body weight and when we run, it can be three or four times our weight — which adds up to a cumulative force of over 500 tons a day.
3. Our feet stop us from falling on our face and supply us with information about the surface we walk on. They tell us whether the surface is hot or cold, rough or smooth, which side it slopes to, etc. (No wonder they are tired at the end of the day ).
4. During a typical day, the average person spends about four hours on their feet and takes between 8,000 and 10,000 steps.
5. There are about 250,000 sweat glands in the feet. The average person will lose about a cup of moisture a day through the feet.
Your feet are like the Power-House of your body. So take care of your feet.
