INJURIES MIRROR NFL: REUTERS' Kate Kelland reported brain scientists are warning rugby and football players who suffer multiple knocks to the head during their careers "are at added risk of brain damage that could lead to dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases." John Hardy, chair of Molecular Biology of Neurological Disease at University College London's Institute of Neurology, said, "What happens is that when you have a big impact, your skull twists one way but your brain stays in the same place." These injuries, he said, "are common" among boxers, NFL and hockey players, as well as football and rugby players. They "can cause damage to the brain similar to abnormalities found in people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia" (REUTERS, 11/5).
