Study: School Sports Injuries Could Increase Risk for Alzheimer's

Even Nonprofessional Sports May Damage Brain, Contribute to Alzheimer’s

You probably know that advancing age and family history are risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease.

But now researchers have shown that brain damage resulting from even unreported mild and repeated head impacts, such as those occurring in both school and professional sports, may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s and other neurological problems.

Researchers from Israel’s Ben-Gurion University used a new diagnostic imaging technique to identify damage to the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in athletes.

Football players had much more significant damage to their BBB than the control group of track and field athletes.

Renowned neurosurgeon and health advocate Dr. Russell Blaylock has spent decades studying Alzheimer’s and other brain conditions.

He warns that these diseases now appear earlier in life, more frequently, and to a much more severe degree.

Because of this escalating epidemic of brain disease, Newsmax Health created a free video documentary showcasing some of Dr. Blaylock’s startling findings.



In this educational video, you will discover:

  • Three warning signs you or a loved one could already suffer from early stage Alzheimer’s . . .
  • Simple strategies to prevent, treat, and even help reverse Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, memory loss, dementia, and other neurodegenerative disorders . . .
  • How to avoid or deactivate common triggers that cause brain inflammation . . .
  • How over-exercising can make your brain vulnerable to brain injury . . .
  • And much, much more . . .

Over 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease today. But Dr. Blaylock offers some positive news.

Maladies such as Alzheimer’s don’t have to afflict you or your family members as you grow older. And even if you already show brain symptoms, you can use Dr. Blaylock’s strategies to help repair the damage. But it’s essential to get started right away.
