Study Finds E-Cigarettes Just as Damaging to Lung Cells

15th Human Foot Washes Up on Canadian Shoreline

The latest discovery was made in West Vancouver in September 2018.

The British Columbia Coroners Service recently asked for the public's help in trying to identify the foot. After running a DNA tests analysis, a match was not found to that of the deceased person to whom the foot belongs. The testing did indicate that the foot came from a male human.

More specifically, the foot was found in a light grey Nike Free RN shoe sporting a black Nike swoosh logo and a white base. There were also white laces and a blue sock.

It also appeared to be in fairly new condition.
