Soccer Headers Can Cause Brain Damages


Bad news, futboleros. A new study suggests that soccer players are putting their brain in danger every time they head the ball. According to scientists from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, repeatedly hitting the ball with your head can lead to injuries very similar to concussions.

If you’re a weekend footballer, don’t be too afraid of this study. Only players who head the ball 1,000 to 1,500 times a year are prone to significant injury.

Truth be told, we’re not too surprised by the results of this study. One only needs to look at asinine comments made by retired soccer players to see that constant contact between noggin and ball can lead to permanent damage. Hugo Sanchez is a prime example.
