Saliva test can help diagnose children with brain injuries

A majority of the research associated with traumatic brain injuries relates to adults. However, significantly more attention should go toward children because they make up a sizable portion of all brain injury sufferers in the United States. Every year, over three million children receive concussion diagnoses, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics

More parents forbid their kids from playing football

Football has been an American pastime for decades. From high school football games to the Super Bowl, there are many ways people bond over the sport. However, some reports suggest football could become a relic of the past. There has been a drastic increase in the number of parents who do not allow their kids to engage in the sport. 

Traumatic brain injuries increase risk of dementia

There are numerous types of traumatic brain injuries people can suffer. For example, a person could have a concussion as a result of a direct blow to the head or a contusion. These injuries can result in damage to one or several parts of the brain, and many scientists now believe one of the side effects might be dementia. 

Who is liable for concussions sustained in school sports?

A huge topic of current discussion in the football world is the risk players face with concussions. While most data relates to professional athletes, there is also concern for the risk facing high school football players, who are not doing this for a living. While a report by PBS found that the link between football and concussions remains unclear, there is evidence to suggest a link between memory loss and concussions. In fact, high school football players are more likely to experience concussions than college players, and the number could even be higher because some injuries go unreported. In some, but not all, cases, the school itself could be liable.

Leading causes of traumatic brain injury

Anytime you suffer a serious blow to the head, you run the risk of a traumatic brain injury. Depending on whether your brain injury is mild, moderate or severe in nature, you may experience relatively minimal symptoms that subside within a few days, or you may experience lifelong effects that can impact everything from your ability to make a living to your capacity to maintain personal relationships.

3 jobs that put workers at risk of brain injuries

Brain injuries often go undetected until survivors begin noticing symptoms such as memory loss, difficulty communicating and confusion. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of people in the U.S. who experience traumatic brain injuries each year may be as high as 1.7 million. These injuries can happen in various ways, but many of them occur on job sites as a result of work-related risks workers face.
