Why do you rarely see barefoot kids any more?
Now I can go weeks without seeing even an infant without shoes! People give you dirty looks if your kids are out and about and otherwise clean and presentable, but without shoes.
Don't people realise that going barefoot isn't going to hurt anyone and is actually healthy? When did all this shoe obsession start?
Also, hook worm is transmitted through fresh faecal matter. You'd only be at serious risk of it if someone carrying hook worm left their fresh faeces on the street and then you stepped in it. You're unlikely to get it in Europe or North America because the prevalence is so low and sanitation is so good, and it's easily treatable if by some freak chance you do.
And I, at least, bathed daily.
