HOW ABOUT NOW?
How do we decorate and beautify our bodies today?
today, women do harmful things to their bodies by wearing high heels.
This position curves the spine unnaturally, causing leg, hip and back problems.
|The higher the heel, the more fashionable the pain!|
|They also pinch their feet into shoes too small, or with pointed toes that cause corns, bunions, and blisters! All for the sake of beauty?|
Fingernails are another of those body parts we think of as alive! But, they're made of dead cells, too! For hundreds of years, fingernails were not for decoration, but for hard work! In the past hundred years, fingernails have become something else to take care of! We paint them, file them, give them vitamins and lotions, and put false ones on to hide our short ones! In some countries, it was the men who grew the long nails! The world's record for long fingernails is held by Shridhar Chillal of India. His thumb nail is 4'8"! That is taller than I am! The other nails measure 3' to 4'!
When fingernails grow out, they curl and twist! It would be hard to do much gardening this way!
