Throw a Yellow Flag on Football-related Head Injuries, Warns the Harvard Mental Health Letter
Date:11/18/2009

of thousands, of hits to the head. Many experts now believe this increases the chance of developing chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a type of brain damage common among boxers.

But you don't have to be a pro player to suffer the long-term consequences of brain injuries. Unless adults consider the sport's inherent dangers to the head, many children will suffer brain damage that can be life-changing in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.

Dr. Miller recommends that parents, players, and coaches pay more attention to protecting brains of all ages from repeated bumps and head injuries. Given the popularity of the sport, NFL leaders are in a special position to take a prominent role in promoting brain health. They could establish safety guidelines at the professional level that no doubt would be emulated by college, high school, and youth programs--something, in other words, that players of all ages could run with.

The Harvard Mental Health Letter is available from Harvard Health Publications, the publishing division of Harvard Medical School, for $59 per year. Subscribe at www.health.harvard.edu/mental or by calling 877-649-9457 (toll-free).
