Another Study Links Playing Football to Brain Trauma
Posted on: April 14, 2016 NFL Concussions
We just added an additional page to our website concerning a new study done by the director of the Florida Center for Headache and Sports Neurology concerning what some say is the strongest link yet between playing football and trauma to the brain. One striking part of the study that stood out to me was that HALF of the former players in the study had serious problems with everyday functions like reasoning, problem solving, planning and attention. In addition, 45% experienced difficulty with learning and memory. These are tasks human beings are expected to perform all of the time without having to think twice. Because the NFL made the decision to hide the dangers of head injuries from their players, these men are struggling with things that most people take for granted. Some of them may say that had they known the risks they still would make the decision to play, but there was no decision for them to make. The NFL took that away from them when the league decided money was more important than players’ lives.
