…and now this. They’re studying the donated brains of dead pro football players, and the findings are “compelling.” Here’s a juicy tidbit:
CSTE studies reveal brown tangles flecked throughout the brain tissue of former NFL players who died young — some as early as their 30s or 40s.
McKee, who also studies Alzheimer’s disease, says the tangles closely resemble what might be found in the brain of an 80-year-old with dementia.
Oh well, I doubt it will even make a dent in American football enthusiasm or revenue. Young men are still boxing, for heaven’s sake.
Once more, I am profoundly thankful that my son has no sports talent whatsoever.
