Scientists have proven contact sports lead to senile dementia

So, according to experts, it is precisely contact sports that increase the risk of developing this ailment. In this case, we are talking about precisely those activities in which people regularly receive blows to the head.

Scientists even studied autopsy and MRI data from athletes involved in traumatic activities. It turned out that about 90% of such people have played American football at some time. The rest played football, boxing, or were injured while serving in the army.

The most interesting thing in all this is that a huge number of such ex-athletes suffered from dementia before their death. And more than 71% have experienced chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
