Don’t Use Your Heads, Kids - CATEGORY News update: TITLE

Cantu endorses a ban on heading for kids under 14. That’s because of the dangers of heading itself, but also what else can happen during the act: the head colliding with other heads, elbows, and the ground. A 2007 study by researchers at Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, found that high school soccer players, both male and female, sustained the majority of concussions via contact with another person. And there’s no disputing that concussions are a serious risk in the sport. Football showed the highest incidence of concussions among high school athletes in the Ohio State study, 47 for every 100,000 games and practices. But girls’ soccer was second with 36 per 100,000 and boys’ soccer third with 22 per 100,000. Former Major League Soccer players Taylor Twellman, Alecko Eskandarian, Josh Gros, Bryan Namoff, and Ross Paule retired following repeated concussions. Two standout women’s college players quit the sport last fall because of concussions. U.S. national team star Abby Wambach, who is known for her heading prowess, was concussed last year when she was struck by a ball during a game., latest News Around the world presents the latest information of national, regional, and international, politics, economics, sports, automotive, and lifestyle.
