Knuckle crackers – keep cracking!

Remember your Mom telling you that cracking your knuckles will give you arthritis?  Scientists have final found out what really goes on when you crack your knuckles and it turns out Mom is wrong.  In fact, there is speculation that cracking knuckles may actually be GOOD for your joints.

That does not mean that it is any less annoying or traumatic to those folks who thoroughly dislike the sound – my husband likens it to nails on a chalkboard – but all of us knuckle-crackers can rest assured that we’re not going to end up with arthritic hands in the long run.

So find a quiet spot or a group of fellow crackers and keep on cracking!
