"We would have even less arthritis if people didn't buy into jogging as some health benefit. It just kills your joints."

Most common forms of arthritis are either caused by an immune system malfunction (causing the immune system to attack otherwise healthy joints) or by an infection. Jogging is a high impact exercise, and as such if you already suffer from arthritis it may accelerate the disintgration of the joints but it does not cause arthritis. The high impact nature of jogging is one of its main advantages in a person with healthy joints as it accelerates growth in the impact area.

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
