Affiliate Disclosures

 

Many of the links on ChaseitStraight.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you. As I endeavor to grow ChaseitStraight.com, the associated costs increase with running, maintaining and marketing it, and these links are a way I help offset these costs.

Christina/ChaseitStraight.com is a participant in the Amazon Service LLC Associates Program; which is an affiliate advertising program designed to also provide an avenue for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Not all links are associated with an affiliate program involving commission. Many of the smaller companies do not offer such programs, but offer products and services that I personally use and pay for. I am passionate about these companies and their offerings, and that is why I recommend them. If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something I personally use, support and would recommend, and many I do recommend without an affiliate link.

Unless otherwise noted, all reviews are of items or services I have purchased myself and I am not paid or compensated in any way. This is my personal standard: I want to make sure that all reviews and recommendations on this site are unbiased, and products and services that I refer to, I love enough to purchase and use myself.

The following are companies I have an affiliate relationship with:

Don't Wear Shoes In The House!

April 19, 2017

 

I have always had an issue with wearing shoes in the house. I personally 10 years ago caught scabies twice in the same year, and the physician said it was due to wearing shoes in the house. From that moment forward, I have been fanatical about it. Those who visit me know, and those who know me know how over the top I am about germs and cleanliness! Let's check out the science behind my germ aversion.

 

Dr. Mercola, one of my favorite doctors has an excellent article on it. There may be no marker of modern civilization quite like the shoe: not only does it make clopping around our cemented world significantly more tolerable (and less dangerous), but it also serves as an indicator of our sensibilities, our profession, our sense of style. You can tell a lot by the shoes people wear from the type of work they do to their income levels, even their political standings. And there’s something else shoes can tell us: whether or not we’re at risk of serious health issues. A recent study out of the University of Houston found that 39 percent of shoe soles sampled were contaminated with the bacteria C. diff (Clostridium difficile), a public health threat that is now resistant to a number of antibiotics.  C. diff infections can cause severe diarrhea that may progress to colon inflammation and more serious health issues, especially if it does not respond to antibiotic treatment. “Shoes are contaminated from diverse sources, and we are regularly contaminating our doorsteps by shoes,” says study author M. Jahangir Alam, Ph.D.

 

 

Beyond the C. diff risk, there are all kinds of bacteria that could be sneaking into your home via your shoe: most public restroom floors contain about 2 million bacteria per square inch (the average toilet seat: only about 50 per square inch). Not exactly guests you want traipsing around your living room, especially if you have young children who spend a lot of time at floor level. 

While it’s not quite as common in the West, most cultures around the world request that you leave your shoes at the door—not only does it keep those harmful germs out, but it’s also a sign of respect for the home, which should be considered a sanctuary away from the outside world.

 

 

Just something to consider the next time you wear shoes in your bedroom, bathroom, or some people have them on when they jump on the bed! Ok, that is making me cringe!, lol

 

I am with you and in your corner!
