YOU MAY HAVE INHERITED YOUR BAD FEET

Foot disorders might be passed down from one generation to the next, according to research presented at the 2010 American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting in Atlanta.

When analyzed using statistical genetics software, researchers found that hallux valgus was inherited in approximately 39% of the women and 38% of men in the study. They also found that, 89% of the participants under the age of sixty inherited the condition. These estimates of heritability are statistically significant. Additionally, in the subjects with pes cavus, 68% of the women and 20% of the men in this group were found to have inherited the condition. And of those under the age of 60 with pes cavus, 99% in women and 63% in men were inherited.
