New study might make you rethink wearing your shoes inside

CNN– A lot of us wear our shoes around the house, but you might want to think twice.

Researchers with 360 Dust Analysis say leaving your shoes on inside the house could bring in potentially harmful pathogens from outside. They say shoes can carry microorganisms that are drug resistant, including hospital associated infectious germs that are difficult to treat. Toxic road asphalt residue and lawn-treatment chemicals could also be tracked indoors.

If you’re not interested in walking around barefoot indoors, the group says a solution could be to have some ‘indoor-only’ shoes that never get worn outside.
