For young boys football is an especially dangerous activity:
From: Sports Illustrated:
"...when the researchers started dragging in apparently healthy non-concussed players for memory tests and MRI's to establish a control group, they were surprised to discover that players had impaired brain functioning despite not having suffered a concussion. Ultimately, the study found that the sheer number of hits that a player had taken over the previous week, completely irrespective of whether a concussion had been suffered, was the best predictor of brain impairment."
"this is particularly scary, because it means that the vast majority of brain damage in football players might be occurring in the absence of any easily recognizable symptoms...."
Football -- a 'sport' like boxing producing and promoted by morons!
Soccer, Tennis, Basketball -- so many healthy alternatives!
