In today's program, Dr. Reminga answers this interesting question... Why 10 toes? When you look at your hands and feet, have you ever questioned why there are exactly 10 toes or digits? Most of us are born with 10 fingers and 10 toes and it's something so ordinary and normal to us, that the thought of WHY our fingers and toes are so perfectly numbered... never crosses our minds. One reason is... BALANCE. We need to be properly balanced to move and function with ease and efficiency. So, those who are born with extra toes don't have this advantage. Even if one foot had 5 toes but the other had 6, we wouldn't be properly balanced... making it more difficult to function. Dr. Reminga has some very interesting information to share about our toes and the reason there are a perfect "10" in number. He answers the question... "Does each toe play a role in how we function on a daily basis?" Also... "Is the big toe called the 'Great Toe' for a reason?" When it comes to the toes on your feet Dr. Reminga has expert insight. All 10 of our toes are important... they are the gears in the engine of the human body, they allow us walk, run, and play sports with impressive efficiency.
