Concussions

Something I have been thinking about lately, what with Noah having one and with watching how kids are playing football these days.  This quote from Rolling Stone: “Part of [the increased risk for harm from concussions in school-age kids] owes to the professionalizing of hobbies.  Kids now play and practice one or more sports eight to 10 months a years, so there’s much more exposure to blunt-fore trauma–and much less downtime to heal.”
