Facts About The Human Foot

1. Each of your feet probably has exactly 26 bones.
That's a quarter of your entire skeleton, which has around 206.

2. Your feet also have 33 joints each.
The better to balance you with.

3. And over a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments,
giving your feet motion and strength.

4. Oh yeah-- and your feet each have 250,000 sweat glands
that can produce as much as half a pint of moisture a day.

5. The soles of your feet have more sensitive nerve endings
 per square inch than any other part of your body.

6. In a day of walking, your feet withstand hundreds of
tons of forces, equivalent to the weight of a cement truck.

7. The average person walks 115,000 miles in a lifetime,
enough to walk around the world four times.

8. But the average woman walks three more miles each day
than the average man.

9. When you run, the pressure on your feet can be
as much as four times your body weight.

10. Backaches, headaches, and even indigestion
can often be traced to problems with the feet.
