I just learned that only 10% of concussions result in the loss of conciousness (https://docs.google.com/a/causes.com/viewer?url=http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/pdf/Football_Fact_Sheet_Coaches-a.pdf) meaning that these injuries could go undetected and kids sent back onto the field to sustain further deadly brain trauma. I signed the petition because all youth sports coaches should be educated to recognize the less overt signs of concussions before they unknowingly tell players to just "shake it off" and keep playing.
so thinkx allot again for your observation and what do you in yr life and what's the nwes for the world of jourbalist sports ah? i'm with but not conaivre me
My grandson suffered a concussion last season and that's to a great team mom he got treated right away!
I signed..lets all sign and get this passed for the safety of all the children!
I signed it too...thanks or the eye opener.
I signed it due to I had concussion long time ago, 3 years ago I developed a brain A...see my story in NBC news of what happened to me, and why I think ea and beleive in early detection @ www.brainogram.org it may save your life too.
This should be common sense.
This should cover all school athletes, even if they are over 18.
yep did it.
my son played football an got hit twice very hard he didn't know where he was an very confused an hasn't played football since then ,,, the coaches made me mad an did not take any concerns it was all up to the physical therapist ,, that is wrong to me I made it an issue to the coaches to watch all player on the field an do not walk away from a child the has a concussions he had headaches for 6 months.
I just learnt that in United States hospitals they serve heaps of fast foods - What?
