Concussion, a book worth reading!

Nigerian American forensic pathologist Bennett Omalu changed the game when he uncovered large quantities of Tau proteins in the brains of American football players who had repeatedly suffered mild traumatic injury while playing football. His self financed work has helped to raise awareness of the dangers of concussion and has already promoted change in compliance with "return to play" guidelines. His book Concussion and the motion picture are worth checking out! He is a true American hero.
