This is Health Matters, with a few pointers on how to avoid knee problems. “When you are overweight, each additional pound you carry translates into four more pounds of pressure on the knee joints. A 20-pound weight gain would add 80 pounds of pressure on your knees.” Health Matters is a production of KIDE Hoopa CA. Produced and written by Cynthia Poten. Engineered by Joseph Orozco. Our readers were Taushona Moon, Michael Heminger and Joseph Orozco. Thank you for listening. Your health adds to the health of our community.
