Contrary to popular belief, running might actually be good for your knees. In other health news: Walnuts are simply loaded with antioxidants and although all nuts may have healthy properties, walnuts make their cousins look downright schlubby.  —PZS

NPR:

Yes, it’s true: Jogging, long thought to hurt knees with all that pounding and rattling around, may actually be beneficial for the complex and critical joint. There are caveats, though, especially for people who have suffered significant knee injury or are overweight. But for the most part, researchers say, jogging for your health seems like a good idea.

CBS Katie Couric important announcement—

“Researchers have just published a new medical study showing startling results.  Childhood obesity just may be linked to overeating and lack of activity”

The dumbing down of medicine has accelerated exponentially in the last 10 years alone.  Interesting how Dr Oz, Oprah, The Doctors, and the evening news can be seen as educating the layman about medicine.  There is no end to Idiot America

Wow! Isn’t this great news!? Better start running and cracking your nuts tomorrow, first thing.

If this is similar to other recent big, hot-off-the-press medical advice, be prepared for a big letdown. About a year from now, the big new medical news will be that eating walnuts while running, for longer than a year, causes your genitalia to shrivel-up and look like walnuts. And your life expectancy to drop to that of a fat chipmunk with arthritis.
