Wearing High Heels May Lead to Cancer
Scientists from the University of Southern California found a link between fashion shoes with high heels and cancer. Researchers have proven that regular wearing such shoes is fraught with the development of cancers. Over the decades, women were warned about the dangers to health that entails wearing shoes with high heels. True, all these years, it was only a threat to the feet and joints. But apparently, there are little more reasons for rejecting the fashionable shoes.
Although wearing shoes with heels may initially strengthen the muscles of ankles, with long-term use of these shoes, the same muscles become weaken, as reported by physiologists from University of North Carolina in the United States last year. Previous studies have suggested that high-heel shoes leads to all sorts of problems, including deformation of the toes, muscle fatigue and osteoarthritis.
Prolonged wearing of uncomfortable for body shoes is the cause of completely unnecessary pain, which actively contributes to inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is a natural part of the healing process of body. However, long-term low-level inflammation makes this process extremely destructive. Scientists point out that certain kinds of inflammation associated with the most severe degenerative diseases, including heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and even cancer. Although malignant tumors can be caused by damage to the mutated genes in our DNA, everything that damages DNA and prevents the natural recovery processes, increases the risk of cancer. In other words, chronic inflammation can mute the natural process of DNA repair that is needed to combat this inflammation. And it will make us vulnerable to cancer and other diseases.
