When temperatures increase, the clothing worn decreases and people start to wear flip-flops. But this is not really the best idea. Scientific studies led by the American Podiatric Medical Association show that due to fungus, calluses, and the “pincer grip” of the foot, in the long run, flip-flops can be really harmful.
We at Bright Side care about your health, and for this we have listed a number of reasons why flip-flops should not be packed in your suitcase for your next vacation.
Risk of bacteria and fungi
Walking around wearing flip-flops turns your feet into a veritable receptacle of bacteria, of which staphylococcus is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous (in the most serious cases, especially in the presence of open wounds,
you could even have to amputate the limb), but it’s also better to pay attention to fungal infections like warts and “athlete’s foot,” which are highly contagious, as well as annoying.
