    My ankles continuously pop and crackle, does anyone have a clue as to how to make this stop? I get plenty of exercise and eat right.

    Does the cracking and popping cause you any pain? This article explains why joints sometimes pop or crack and says that "painless cracking of joints is -- as a rule -- not harmful." If this is something that you are concerned with, it would be a good idea to speak with your doctor.
