Concussions: Fact v. Fiction
Concussions used to be considered "part of doing business" for those who participated in sports at all levels. The idea of "shaking it off and getting back in there" was so deeply ingrained in our sports culture that it was often seen as a sign of commitment to the team. Yet during recent decades, evidence of irreversible brain injury began piling up, showing that concussions were not a relatively benign side effect of sports, but were life-altering, and sometimes fatal injuries that had been underestimated for years. In this book, the American Council on Science and Health examines changes in the awareness, prevention, and treatment of an injury that is becoming more and more recognized as the serious health threat that it is.
