The biggest myth around running is that it is bad for the knees.
No more half truths, as many more studies point to running being good for delaying onset of or preventing osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Running and impact are good for the joints.

It’s much like driving a car - follow the rules, don’t try and copy someone else blindly; if you have a problem which prevents you from driving well or focusing on the road, DON’T.
Have you ever heard of doctors telling the world not to drive because it is one of the world’s greatest killers? Many more people die in traffic accidents on an ongoing basis, as also many more people die in their sleep.
So should you not drive at all, or not sleep at all?
