scientific paper on concussions in Americas most popular sport That judgment, implausible even to a casual fan, also contradicted the opinion of a growing cadre of neuroscientists who worked in vain

reveals how the NFL, over a period of nearly two decades, sought to cover up and deny mounting evidence of the connection between football and brain damage.Comprehensively, and for the first time,

protect the human brain from the force generated by modern football that the very essence of the game could be exposing these players to brain damage.In a fast paced narrative that moves between the NFL trenches, Americas research labs and the boardrooms where the NFL went to war against science, League of Denial examines how the league used its power and resources to attack independent

knew and when it knew it questions at the heart of crisis that threatens football, from the highest levels all the way down to Pop Warner. of Deceased NFL Players Found to Have Brain Disease In order
