Known as pes planus in medical terminology, collapsed arches or flat feet is a foot problem that is caused when small bones, ligaments and tendons on the bottom of the feet are unable to support the body properly and eventually collapse. In newborns and toddlers, flat feet are a normal phenomenon; however, most of the times, tissues beneath the feet tighten with age and form a shock-absorbing arch. Flat feet are caused by many factors like improper footwear, obesity and even hereditary predisposition. Flat feet don’t lead to any negative consequences or symptoms in most adults. However, some people may experience pain in foot, back or leg and their ability of walking, running or playing sports may be restricted due to flat feet. Therefore, collapsed arches are an important issue that should be rectified.

I want to promote a food here called smoothie to these vegetable-haters because they can easily see that they don’t have to cook vegetables, don’t have to spend much time in eating them and still they can get all the tremendous health benefits of vegetables through smoothies.
