Something that keeps showing up in the news.
Former professional athletes (from all arenas) coming out with Parkinson’s diagnoses…
Steve Ludzik (NHL)
Dave Parker (MLB)
Brian Grant (NBA)
Forrest Gregg (NFL)
… is it the repeat blows to the head leading to Brain Injury (see post HERE)? if so, how do we make these games safer (concussion-wise), while still retaining the spirit of the sport? How does this apply to other “hard hitting” jobs, like military?
just something that has been on my mind… much love.
Interested in more? here’s a start… Lehman et al. Neurology Sept 2012
and have you seen this documentary “Head Games” (2012)
