Editor's note: the fact that a collision like rugby and boxing can damage the brain in the long run is 
an indisputable fact. This article is compiled from Sara g. Miller's article in Live Science titled 
"Striking Study Shows How Football Affects the Brain."

Of more than 200, the late American Football players - 111 for the National Football League (NFL,
 National Football economic), giving the brain's examination showed that 90% of them suffered 
from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy).
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is often associated with repeated head injuries, according to 
the Mayo clinic. The patient's condition worsens over time, with clinical symptoms including 
learning disabilities, forgetfulness and depression.
, however, to carry out the study of the Boston University Center for chronic traumatic 
encephalopathy (Boston University 's CTE Center), said after the death of the athletes, donated 
by family brain samples, was diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

On July 25, The results of The study, published in The Journal of The American Medical 
Association (JAMA, The Journal of The American Medical Association, The researchers of 202 
brain donated by The late football player for inspection, found that 177 patients with chronic 
traumatic encephalopathy, up to 87%. Eleven of the 111 National Football League athletes 
donated their brains, with a whopping 99 percent. In addition, semi-professional football players 
and those engaged in rugby in their student days also have varying degrees of illness.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is different from light to heavy. The researchers found that 
the former NFL players were "extremely serious", with 71 percent suffering from severe chronic 
traumatic encephalopathy.
To facilitate the understanding of the symptoms presented by the patient, the researchers 
interviewed family members (including spouses and adult children), and the relatives of 111 
donors were interviewed.
The researchers found that 96% of the patients with severe chronic traumatic encephalopathy 
and 89% of patients with mild chronic traumatic encephalopathy, all show behavior and emotional 
changes, including impulse, depression, indifference and anxiety. In addition, 95 percent of 
serious patients and 85 percent of mild cases showed deterioration in thinking skills, including 
memory, attention and language problems.
Interviews show that almost all patients are getting worse. However, the researchers also 
acknowledged that the examination of the athletes' brains showed only a fraction of the time they 
were ill, not enough to determine the progression of the disease.
The donor was in the field for a number of positions, including the line front, the quarterback and 
the kicker. Different positions, different levels of impact. They have been in rugby for at least 15 
The results suggest that chronic traumatic encephalopathy may be associated with rugby.
The researchers acknowledged the limitations of the survey. For example, donors and their 
families may have known about chronic traumatic encephalopathy before they decided to donate 
their brains to study the symptoms.
