New Study Finds Football Is More Traumatizing to Players’ Brains than Previously Believed

A new study shows 110 out of 111 donated brains from former NFL players suffered from CTE, a form of brain degeneration that causes memory loss, anxiety, depression, lack of emotional control, and dementia. Overall, 202 brains of former football players were tested, from high school age up, which indicated that the longer the game was played, the more likely a player would suffer from CTE—caused by repeated sub-concussive blows.
