You clearly don't understand. If you had any concept anatomy or biomechanics you would know how bad sport in general is for your health.
Ask any sports man in their 50's how their joints are or their back is.
No playing paintball at the weekend isn't going to damage your knees but if you run for let's say 1 hour a day the meniscus cartilage in your knees will tear and flake off leaving with bone on bone or known as osteoarthritis.

Sorry just informing you that sport is detrimental to ones health, a concept you dont understand. Running in excessive amounts is bad for you. Its fact. There no shit you can do or say to change that fact.

Ok, the cartilage in your knees, the meniscus. Well it's a thick pad and this pad absorbs the shock transferred through your knees. This pad of cartilage will never ever grow back or repair it's self once its gone.
when you run you transfer 8 times your body weight through your knees. This thick pad as rouged as it seems does wear away, an all those ,little niggles you get tear the cartilage. When I say excessive I mean 2or so hours a day.
When this cartilage has worn away due to it's weight bearing load and continual pressure of running the bone will grind on bone, which you know as osteoarthritis.
Argue as you will but cartilage does wear away and it won't ever re grow. yes ageing to some extent does have an effect but sport quickly speeds up the process. I've written numerous papers on how sport is detrimental to health in different ways.
For your information before you start throwing around terms and accusations I've been studying sports and science exercise for 4 years now. With that course I've studied biology and human biology. I've also taken level 1,2 and 3 physical instructors course. So I'm now qualified to go and work in a gym as a personal trainer.
Sport has been my life for is considerable time. It's something I know a fair bit about. I'm not trying to belittle anyone, I'm trying to help people. I know a lot of people haven't studied sport in depth and trying to help.
Running directly on it's own isn't that bad. But that's not the problem. People have piss poor running technique, myself included. Through this you get the niggles which causes the cartilage to flake which causes arthritis which is a pain in the ass.
I'm starting to think helping people isn't worth it.........
Lol You don't get it... Where did I ever say cartilage does not wear away, or that it grows backs? You won't find it. You read one thing and you have comprehension problems or something because you registered it as something else. I said running does not cause osteoarthritis and so on.. You are more than welcome to go back and read it over again..
I am going to go with the assumption that you mean little hairline fractures when you say niggles..
And please keep repeating to me what Osteoarthritis is. I obviously do not understand it....
Also I want to thank you for proving to me that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. You completely tried to back step your way out of the hole you dug yourself in and showed that you have no facts at all.
Sooo... What's your final answer here bud? I mean you studied biology, human biology, lvl 1-3 instructor courses, certified personal trainer, and yet you do not have an exact answer here.. Were you asleep during the lecture days on this?
You just proved that your entire point you were trying to make is invalid. Your not even sure on what you are saying and tried to change it after you saw that I have credible information proving your wrong. Information and data collected by credited scientists and medical professionals that had their research published in medical journals.
Speaking of credibility, the papers you wrote have none. Those are simply some papers you wrote on how you think sport is detrimental to health. You are not a credited professional. You have no hard evidence that running causes Osteoarthritis. I could go find someone who says Hitler was Jesus Christ reincarnated and was here to cleanse the planet and write numerous papers on it but that does not make it true...
Well I am glad it took you 4 years to become a personal trainer. I see it went a long way for you.
