Posted November 30, 2018 04:01:33When dads wear the sandals they wear because it is the one place where they can fit more comfortably.
They are also the only place they can be wearing them.
Dads in sandals are not only the most active members of their family but also the most physically fit, according to a study of more than 1,300 dads by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Physicians.
Dads who are also fathers have higher levels of testosterone and lower levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, compared to their non-dads, the researchers said.
“We are seeing more dads in sandal wearing sandals,” said study author Dr Peter Molloy, a consultant urologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the National Health and Medical Research Council.
“It is also important to note that, while these findings are very positive, it is not surprising that there may be a negative association between testosterone and sandal use.”
It was not clear why fathers who wear sandal shoes tend to be less physically active than those who don’t.
Daughters may have a stronger need to be physically active and this may explain why they are more likely to wear sandaling shoes, the study found.
However, the findings do not suggest that sandals cause higher levels or cause more problems than shoes, it said.
“We don’t know whether sandals have a positive or negative effect on cardiovascular disease risk, but we do know that they can make fathers more physically fit and help protect against disease.”
Sandals have not been shown to have any negative effect, and the benefits of sandals may outweigh the risks.
“It is not clear how much the number of dads wearing sandal footwear affects the incidence of cardiovascular disease or stroke in their families, the authors said.
“Dads with diabetes and those with a high BMI might have lower testosterone levels.””
Dads who wear them may have lower levels or may have higher testosterone and cortisol,” they said.
“Dads with diabetes and those with a high BMI might have lower testosterone levels.”
Dr Molloys studies suggest that, although fathers who are not in a relationship are less likely to be sedentary, they may also be less likely or unable to exercise because of poor diet, a lack of physical activity, poor physical conditioning, poor sleep and a lack the time.
The research is published in the BMJ, which was published on Tuesday.
