Careless physician criticism of a colleague can cause legal trouble
Orthopedics Today

Healthy feet make for happy adults
Houston Chronicle
Foot pain can have a profound impact on quality of life.

For those with chronic, or continuous, foot pain, that number jumps to 83 percent.

Why we walk
The New Yorker
Why people walk is a hard question that looks easy. Upright bipedalism seems such an obvious advantage from the viewpoint of those already upright that we rarely see its difficulty. In the famous diagram, Darwinian man unfolds himself from frightened crouch to strong surveyor of the ages, and it looks like a natural ascension: you start out bending over, knuckles dragging, timidly scouring the ground for grubs, then you slowly straighten up until there you are, staring at the skies and counting the stars and thinking up gods to rule them. But the advantages of walking have actually been tricky to calculate.
