This is an interesting one! Has anyone else seen in the newspaper today that experts say 'running won't damage the knees'? And there is no link between running and osteoarthritis. But runners place 8 times their bodyweight on each step. They reckon this might strengthen cartilage. I'm trying to get my head round this, when it's reckoned that more obese people get osteoarthritis - I'm struggling to see the logic here, how running can strengthen cartilage but obesity wears it away. Any thoughts?
