This is a few months old, but I don't think anyone shared it... Can DRUGS mitigate the effects of CTE in football players? This hippie thinks so (although a PubMed search didn't exactly reveal a glut of peer-reviewed evidence in his favor--10 papers since 1975). It seems to be based on a SPARTY study of the antioxidant effects of THC in the brain to reduce deposits of the dastardly tau protein, which seems plausible enough. There are other non-illegal antioxidants that may work as well, however.

OT: Junior Seau dead - CTE?

As the link says, he appears to have killed himself in the same manner of Dave Duerson. Unless there is a note, there's no way to know if he wanted his brain checked for signs of CTE, but I hope his family will allow it. I don't think it would surprise anybody to find that somebody who played as hard as he did to show signs of it. RIP

Former Alabama Running Back Kevin Turner Has ALS and Why That Matters So Much

Often, doctors basically can't tell the difference between it and Lou Gehrig's disease.--AJ] As a study connecting ALS and concussions comes out, Roll Bama Roll takes note that one of the Tide's past heroes is diagnosed with the disease. The painful quote: "You get up there in the NFL, you're so dadgum excited, it was a dream come true," Kevin Turner said Thursday night as part of a Prattville YMCA benefit dinner in his honor. "It's something you dream of as a kid. The first six years were incredible. Looking back on it, I should've given it up earlier."
