CTE and Football Players

Health experts believe that chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a degenerative and progressive disease caused from too many hits, may be to blame for players’ deteriorating health. It is associated with memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression and progressive dementia.
