Bodychecking should be outlawed?

Ice hockey is a sport with great potential to increase the health of individuals, but the practices that increase the risk for the vast majority of players must be minimized, says Cusimano. And ‘n now clear that’ There is no advantage to a person or group for continuing to allow control of the body. Hockey organizers, sponsors, media, coaches, trainers and players and parents must unite in defense of multifaceted approaches that include changing the rules to reduce the risk of injury. Minor league hockey players in the Atom division are 10 times more likely to suffer damage to the brain to control the body was given 9-10 years, according to a study of the San hospital. Michael neurosurgeon, Dr. Michael Cusimano.

Dr. Porotto and colleagues present a new strategy to prevent and treat these infections that may be widely applicable to other ‘envelope’ of viral pathogens, characterized by an outer shell that comes from the infected host cell. The new treatment has been successfully tested in an animal model that shows the symptoms of the nervous system, similar to those observed in humans.

According to the researchers, led by Cusimano, director of the Center for Injury Prevention Research at St. Michael of Toronto, the opportunity to visit an emergency department because of an injury to the brain increased significantly among all players in shots minor hockey, Hockey Canada, the rules relaxed after the successes of the season 1998/1999. At that time, the organization has, for the first time contact with the body, between 9 and 10 years in the Atom division.

Our work has confirmed that the audit body is the most common cause of injury hockey While proponents argue that the age for the control of the body helps players learn to control and reduce injuries in the elderly, Our study clearly demonstrated otherwise -. The risk of all injuries and damage especially to the brain, increases with exposure to body control, said Cusimano.

While all ages have shown an increase in accidents, the most young are the most vulnerable young people unnecessarily and control, the risk of long-term effects of brain damage, such as cognitive and social behavior.
