    Numbers Game: Answer

    knee_painFive pounds of excess weight increase your risk of arthritis by 25 percent.

    This helps explain why overweight and obese individuals have higher rates of knee replacement surgery than their healthy-weight counterparts.

    An study published in the August 2009 issue of the journal Radiology concluded that “for every one-unit increase in BMI (body mass index) there was an 11% increase of cartilage loss” in the knees.

    I bolded and italicized “cartilage loss” because, once cartilage deteriorates, it does not grow back.

    Arthritis is now even seen among children as young as seven due to skyrocketing pediatric overweight and obese rate.

    Remember — excess weight produces high amounts of inflammation.  Chronic inflammation, in turn, is linked to higher risks of developing degenerative diseases like arthritis along with heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
