Concussions

This is good:

These new guidelines, published today in JAMA Pediatrics, are the first that focus on children. The set of 19 recommendations (available in the paper above) cover diagnosis and treatment, including suggestions for when children should return to school.

Two of my three kids (so far) play soccer nearly every single day and I think often about their health and safety, especially head injury.

When I was growing up we simply didn’t have the medical or cultural understanding like we do now and so naturally as more science has been made available I have changed and adopted new position(s) on it.

Why other folks (and organizations) continue to ignore this major issue is beyond me… although, I do understand that in some instances it’s simply about greed as these organizations continue to lobby against the health of the very people that put money in their pockets. They should die.

Epic sadness.
