BU Study Shows More Issues With Concussions

A new study shows 110 of 111 brains  examined of former NFL players had chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE.  

Researchers from Boston University  School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare found that 177 of the 202  total brains tested showed evidence of CTE.  

All specimens belonged to  former football players at all levels of the sport.  

Three of the 14 who  played only high school football had CTE, while 48 of 53 college  players had it.  

The study focused on the connection between football  and the neurodegenerative disease.
