2/5/13 IS FOOTBALL REALLY CAUSING BRAIN DAMAGE?
READ FULL STORY AT
Weve all been hearing the stories over the past year about concussions, etc, causing permanent brain damage, & ive been listening, having played football from pee wee thru high school, & wondering if theres any merit to all of this “new” medical information. So far, Im just a spectator listening in, still undecided, but starting to wonder if its something to be taken more seriously. I dont put a lot of stock in the liberal washington post, but heres a story by them, another one meant to make us think twice. Should we take it seriously, this time? Im not being rhetorical, seriously wondering .
“Last Sunday night watching the Super Bowl. And like millions of other
Americans, I did so with a pang of guilt.
Football is a cruel sport that permanently injures the
brains of its players. A “great hit,” the kind that elicits
“oohs” and leads to instant replays, is a trauma. The
brain slams into the skull. Hard. At the University of
North Carolina’s Sports Concussion Research Program,
they put six sensors into the helmets of their players.
Malcolm Gladwell reported the results for one young
defensive lineman, who in a simple day of practice,
sustained four hits ranging from 63 to 96 gs. To put
those numbers in perspective, Gladwell writes, “if you
drove your car into a wall at 25 miles per hour and you
weren’t wearing your seat belt, the force of your head
hitting the windshield would be around 100 gs.”…”
