how dirty our shoes REALLY are

New York Daily News did a study, sending 2 reporters around NYC wearing $3.50 sandals over 4 days. They went everywhere, from the train, to public bathroom, bars, you name it. Then after those 4 days they sent them to the lab to get tested. And... drum roll please... analysts found staphylococcus aureus. What is that you may ask? It's bacteria that can kill you if left untreated. Dr. Charles P. Gerba from University of Arizona says, "If you wear shoes for three months, 93% have fecal bacteria and 20% have E.coli." See why I hate feet, they are connected to your shoes! Yuck. <3>
