      Interesting article on running vs biking. Here's my own take: Biking: * Burns fewer calories per hour than running (a 150-pound person cycling at 16 to 19 miles per hour burns about 850 calories). * A gentler workout than running, at least for your joints and the weight-bearing parts of your body. * Vigorous cycling may lower levels of ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates your appetite (meaning you won't be as hungry). Running: * Generally burns more calories per minute than cycling (a 150-pound person running a 7-minute mile—which is really, really fast—burns about 1,000 calories per hour). * Has been shown to be the source of more injuries than cycling. * Vigorous running may also quell your appetite. Still, what you enjoy the most is often the overlooked factor!

      As of 9/16, 5 out of 5 stories on this page refer to men. Where are the references to female researchers, scholars, and experts? will you make efforts to include them, as well?
