    There are many reasons even the most ardent Hillary Clinton supporter can come up with as to why she probably shouldn’t be president. Of course, most of those folks are burying their heads in the cement, holding their nose, and praying like there’s no tomorrow that more of Hillary and Bill’s “secrets” don’t come tumbling down on top of them to crush Hillary’s chances of becoming the country’s first female president. After all, that’s the only reason she’s running. She has no clue what she’d actually do AS president, right? Well, there’s a hidden little secret that the Hillary camp...

"I would bet my medical license that he has CTE," Omalu said. "Given his profile, I think it's not an irresponsible conclusion to suspect he has CTE."

Published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, the study found that 12.5 per cent of adults with a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) were also diagnosed with ADHD or screened positive for the disorder during a self-report test developed by the World Health Organization. Previous research has revealed similar results in children. “The odds of...

The tests involve number tracking, memory and balance. “We just decided that it would be better off to have all of our students have a baseline, so that if they should ever have a concussion, we’ll have something to work with,” head athletic trainer Tim Moscicki...

    I initially thought Hillary's "concussion" sounded a little too conveniently timed, you know like those ailments we got before school on days when we hadn't completed the day's assignment. However, now I'm wondering if all the precautions they are taking indicate her condition is more serious than we are being told. Women Hillary's age are susceptible to strokes , including so called "mini strokes", that can cause falls. Hillary's father died of a stroke which means she has a family history of stroke susceptibility.

    The consequences of mild traumatic brain injury are often anything but mild. Recent studies linking concussion to long-term neurologic deficits suggest that, for some individuals, the characteristic transient brain dysfunction and acute symptom resolution represent the beginning of potentially irreversible structural and functional brain alterations. “Traumatic brain injury occurs as a spectrum disorder. The term 'mild' describes only the initial insult relative to the degree of neurological severity. There may be no correlation with the degree of short- or long-term impairment or functional disability,” said Dr. Nathan Zasler of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, and medical director of the Concussion...

    AP Medical Writer Traumatic brain injury, described as the signature wound of the Iraq war, may be less to blame for soldiers' symptoms than doctors once thought, contends a provocative military study that suggests post-traumatic stress and depression often play a role. That would be good news because there are successful treatments for those conditions, said several nonmilitary doctors who praised the research. Thousands of soldiers returning from Iraq have struggled with memory loss, irritability, trouble sleeping and other problems. Many have suffered mild blast-related concussions, but there is no easy way to separate which symptoms are due to physical...
