Wearing high heels on long – term basis has been found to be associated with cancer, a leading cancer expert in the United States
(U.S) has said. According to the Professor of Medicine at the University of Southern California, Dr. David Agus, there may be a link between vertiginous footwear and cancer.
In his book, ‘A Short Guide To A Long Life’ — which lists the simple steps people should take to reduce their risk of cancer and long – term illness, Agus recommended avoiding high – heeled shoes and spending more time in comfortable shoes.
He argued that wearing uncomfortable shoes every day doesn’t just cause unnecessary pain — and damage joints — it actively triggers low level inflammation as the body struggles with being forced into an unnatural posture and gait.
Inflammation is part of the body’s natural healing process. Whether it is puffiness around a splinter or swelling around a joint, the process is triggered when the body encounters harmful stimuli such as bacteria, injury or irritants.
According to a report on the mail online, scientists now believe that if low levels of inflammation were allowed to become chronic, the process could become highly destructive.
What happens is that the chemical messengers in the body trigger a low grade smouldering response which, without us noticing, damages tissues throughout the body
Although the science is still unclear, it seems the same chemicals which were critical for the healing process can inadvertently cause damage — one example is that they appear to contribute to hardening of the arteries.
