I'm sure women "adored" corsets too, when it was in fashion. I'm sure these women "adore" neck rings: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...neck_rings.jpg

Here's the health "benefits" of high heels.
They can cause foot pain. |
They increase likelihood of sprains and fractures.
They make calves look more rigid and sinewy.
They can create foot deformities, including hammertoes and bunions.
They can cause an unsteady gait.
They can shorten the wearer's stride.
They can render the wearer unable to run.
Altered forces at the knee caused by walking in high heels may predispose to degenerative changes in the knee joint.
Foot and tendon problems as listed below.
Women who wear high heels frequently have a higher incidence of degenerative joint disease of the knees. This is because they cause a decrease in the normal rotation of the foot, which puts more rotation stress on the knee.
