How bad are they really? Has anyone heard about Ted Johnson?
A New York Times story earlier this year quoted a noted forensic pathologist who studied Waters' brain tissue and determined that it resembled that of an 85-year-old man with Alzheimer's disease, likely the result of multiple concussions suffered during Waters' career.
The numerous head traumas, said Dr. Robert Cantu, co-director of the Neurological Sports Injury Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital, have left Johnson with post-concussion syndrome as well as signs of early brain damage that Cantu fears is permanent.
I am really wondering what people do to protect themselves. How many people out there where helmets? Mouth guards? I know in moguls and aerials a bunch of people are starting to wear mouth guards but what about freeride. Well that’s it. Input is wanted even if you just want to call me a nerdy ass bitch.
