This Week in Low Carb News: Why Kids Get Hurt More and Cheap Viagra?

It’s not your imagination.  Kids ARE getting hurt more while playing sports – This is an incredibly interesting article explaing why kids are tearing their ACL and MCLs when this was an unheard of injury just a few decades ago.  Here’s a taste. “Twenty years ago kids didn’t tear their ACL, they broke the tibial spine.  This was because in growing children the bones are not at full strength, but the ligaments are.  In a stressed situation, where the ACL is yanking on the tibial spine, the bone gave way before the ligament, hence the fracture.  Orthopaedics textbooks from the nineties warned doctors to look for tibial spine fractures because children don’t tear their ACLs.  In essence, they thought they were immune to ACLs by virtue of being children.”
