CTE - chronic traumatic encephalopathy

Just watched a programme on CTE and did a little research into it. I'm amazed that I suffer from most of the symptoms and I have never played any of the sports mentioned. I did boxing as a youngster to a minor degree, was involved in more than a few fist fights over the years, but the sport I played most was football (soccer). I injured my head & neck more than a few times during games and, as a centre forward and later as a central defender had to head the ball constantly and I did so with quite a bit of force.

If what I have posted tickles your interest, please read the following link and look at the sheer amount of top level American sportsmen involved and think of the numbers of those who may have or are suffering and aren't listed:
