Study links youth football to greater risk of later health problems

#study conducted by Boston University found that children who sustain repeated #head #injuries before age 12 are more likely to suffer from behavioral and mood impairments (i.e., depression, apathy) as they age. Safety is important, brain health is important, and fun is important! Let’s hope #safety recommendations can be made in light of this #research that allow children to enjoy the sports they love without potentially serious effects on their health. #VTPT #sports#concussionmanagement #LoveYourBrain
