Nigella Lawson's Unappetizing Bunions

You have to feel sorry for these celebrities who's bunioned feet end up all over the news. I wish that we could gather them up, take them in for surgery, and fix their problem! In the past Victoria Beckham and Oprah Winfrey have receive media attention for their protruding bunions.
Britain's famous television chef, Nigella Lawson, also known as the "Domestic Goodness", was out shopping in Sydney last week, minding her own business, when photographers caught her in Fit-Flops (a good choice, by the way) with her bunion. Lawson has admitted to being an avid high heel wearer, even saying that she will wear them to bed and use them seductively.
High heels are among the worst culprits of causing bunion problems, as when wearing them your body weight goes forward and puts pressure on the big toe joint. It is important to remember however, that not all wearers of high heels will later in life have bunions. What determines if you are going to have bunions is your foot type, passed down through families or the way you walk.
You will know you have a bunion when your big toe joint starts to jut out from the rest of your foot. Oftentimes bunions are extremely painful; the worst cases are corrected through surgery. You will find it difficult to wear shoes without pain. At the first sign of pain you should seek podiatric attention.
