Smelly Feet
Everybody is familiar with this phenomenon. Most of us have a friend or relative who can clear out a room when they kick off their shoes. Even the sweetest smelling person can do a decent job of stinking up a pair of shoes by running a few miles in them. So what's going on here? Why do your feet have a stronger odor than the rest of your body?

The main thing that feeds foot smell is sweat. Did you know that each foot contains 250,000 sweat glands? In one day, each foot can produce more than a pint of sweat.

It is not just sweat that creates odor in feet. Socks and shoes contribute too. Sweat on the rest of our body is able to evaporate but our feet are stuck in our dark, damp socks and shoes. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. When you take off your shoes the smell that occurs is from the bacteria that has collected on your feet, socks and shoes.
