Study Finds Football Affects Youth Brain Development After Just One Season

Just one season of football resulted in signs of damage to brain development for those youth players who have frequent impacts to the head, according to a study, CNN reported on Monday.

"Repetitive head impact exposure may have a cumulative effect in the rapidly developing brains of youth and high school football players," said study co-author Gowtham Krishnan Murugesan.

The study provided 60 football players between the ages of 9 and 18 who had no history of head trauma or developmental issues with a telemetry system that measures impacts to the head.

The players were put into two categories - those with high cumulative head impacts and those with low cumulative ones.

Football remains just like the other sports. Why? Gambling.

As this country GROWS with gambling - the ears that used to listen to the Doctors, statisticians, experts on the bad effects contact sports has on athletes - deafens.

Reality is the almighty dollar!
