NFL Meddling in Brain Injury Research

In 2012, the National Football League made headlines with a promise to donate a substantial sum of money to further the field of concussion research. The NFL promised to provide $30 million in research funding to the National Institutes of Health. The NFL further claimed that the gift was not restricted and that use of the money would be overseen entirely by the NIH. A recent Congressional study has concluded that the NFL engaged in efforts to improperly influence the research.

Traumatic Brain Injuries on Playgrounds

Concussion awareness is a hot-button issue in the field of athletics. Youth sports are a common source of concern for parents. The danger of concussions is an issue frequently raised in connection with football, soccer and other contact sports. A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention demonstrates that parents should also be aware of the potential for brain injuries on the playground. According to researchers, the number of serious head injuries suffered on playgrounds has risen sharply in recent years.
