Pediatricians: Stop Using Trampolines
Citing 98,000 trampoline-related injuries in the U.S. in 2009, the American Academy of Pediatrics published a statement in the journal Pediatrics that “strongly discouraged” children’s use of trampolines. What do you think?
“Sounds like these doctors just want more trampoline time for themselves.”

“I’m sorry, but the pure, unadulterated joy on my daughter’s face as she floats carelessly through the air is worth any ensuing snapped bones or paralysis.”
Eric DeAngelis –
“Oh, come on. Most of those injuries weren’t caused by trampolines—they were caused by the ground.”
