  A Comprehensive Study of Sports Injuries in the U.S.
Since 1987, American Sports Data, Inc. has been tracking sports and fitness participation in the U.S. In the year 2001, 50.6 million people over the age of 6 were frequent exercisers who participated in a single activity such as running, cycling or treadmill exercise on at least 100 occasions.

At the very least, we would expect that arbiters of sports medicine — the de facto medical policemen who oversee research, publish journals, issue safety guidelines and other proclamations to the sports and fitness industries, might — at some point or other — have commisioned a national study on the very subject of their expertise.
