CTE is caused by an abnormal buildup of tau proteins in the brain. These proteins essentially keep the flow of nutrients and cells in the brain on an orderly track. When the proteins build up, it creates roadblocks and deprives brain tissue of what it needs to stay healthy. A similar tau protein abnormality is connected to Alzheimer’s disease.
Elite Womens David Savard Jersey The amount of buildup and how it’s distributed determined the severity of the disease in each brain studied. Researchers classified four stages of the disease, with stage one as the least severe and stage four being the most severe.
Interestingly, the study found a correlation between the milder stages of the disease and significant behavioral and emotional symptoms during the person’s lifetime. That’s yet another indication that more research is needed about from CTE.
The league finally admitted in 2016 that there is a connection between football and CTE. It was a long time coming. Until that point, the NFL had mostly attempted to dodge responsibility despite significant evidence suggesting a strong link.
