Sports head injuries Thu, Jul 21, 2011
For a while now, there's been almost constant news coverage of head injuries in sports and the long term effects suffered by football players and other contact sports athletes.  Most of the discussion is centered around how older players are experiencing brain issues that they didn't anticipate, or simply dying young.  I think it would be wise to pause for a moment, stop the lawyer talk and even the scientist talk, and look at this logically:  If you spend the majority of your life getting hit on the head or using your head to hit things, you will experience long term head injury effects like dementia, migraines, depression, etc.  To be surprised by this is not really an option. #sports
