Hard Hits lead to Brain Disease

| No Comments

Football Sunday at my house is full of guys cheering and wincing as they watch their fantasy teams be destroyed week after week. But what happens to those players after the game has ended? There's no denying those linebackers take quite a beating, but is it worth it? This new study shows even more support to those who say routinely being hit may lead to brain disease.
The study itself used 68 men and 17 women ranging from ages 17-98. Most of the participants were athletes from all different levels, high school to pro, and retired. The study classified the athletes on a four-tiered system ranging from headaches and loss of attention all the way to dementia and aggression.
