I am going to let you in on a little secret; American football is a dangerous sport. If you’re a football player, you’re placing yourself in great danger. And it doesn’t matter how old you might happen to be.
If you’re a parent and you care about your child, don’t let him or her ever put on a football helmet and play this game. If you do, it’s like entering the child in a Russian roulette tournament.
American football is a violent sport that many people around the world love to watch. I confess, I am one of them.
People in general are addicted to violence and attracted to this sport because they like the violence associated with the game.
The general public realize football players can break bones, detach ligaments, and in the rarest of situations can become paralyzed. But until recently, they didn’t understand that football players could develop permanent and life threatening brain damage from repetitive head trauma that is incurred by most players on virtually every play during the course of a game.
It’s the cumulative concussive forces that over time destroy the cellular tissues inside the human brain and spinal cord. Although the damage is not usually visible on diagnostic imaging such as CT or MRI scans, the microscopic inspection of brain tissues extracted from deceased players has vividly displayed the death of brain cells that have occurred from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
The movie, “Concussion” exposed how the NFL hid from its players and other employees, for a substantial number of years, key scientific evidence that proved there was permanent damage being inflicted on its players after each play in a particular game. Only after a gifted doctor from a foreign country, Dr. Bennet Omalu, made the connection between head trauma from football and brain disorders in retired football players did the NFL make a public admission that safety guidelines had to be implemented for all of its teams.
The movie depicts how the NFL went to great lengths to discredit Omalu’s work and professional credentials. The movie hints at the idea that powerful entities threatened his American VISA, his family, his coworkers, and had the help of the US government and various law enforcement agencies in a quest to suppress the truth.
Presently, football proponents believe (not really) that making better helmets, pads and other modifications to existing equipment prototypes will make the sport safer for its players.
It’s a ridiculous concept because no matter how much padding you add to equipment protecting the brain and body, it’s still going to be unable to prevent the reverberations being transmitted throughout the entire body coming from concussive forces that are created when two human beings collide on a football field.
These concussive forces are going to cause irreparable damage to the human nervous system as well as the body’s internal organs. Oh yes, the organs in your body and the cells that make the tissues that make the organs are also slowly dying from these recurrent traumas transpiring on football fields. It wasn’t discovered in the CTE study, but they weren’t looking at those organs’ cells. You can bet that those tissues and organs are being irreparably damaged too.
And by the way, the problem is not going to be solved by simply instructing players not to tackle or hit opponent players in their heads, with their heads. If a player is hit repeatedly in the sternum or other upper body areas, the impact still translates into a concussive force that negatively affects the brain, spinal cord and other organ tissues.
If you want to take part in the sport of football and remain healthy, become a spectator.
The same thing happened years ago with Big Tobacco. Lie after lie was published in medical journals and fake research was regurgitated by puppet physicians about how safe cigarettes were and that they posed no threat whatsoever to the construct of human physiology. Today we know just how deadly cigarettes really are.
The same thing is happening presently with regards to Big Pharma and the plethora of toxic drugs and vaccines they have unleashed upon humanity. Years ago, Dr. Andrew Wakefield exposed and proved through a scientific study the association between Autism and the MMR vaccine. His research was published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet. It was later retracted and he was ostracized from his profession and stripped of his license to practice medicine.
Whether it’s spilling the beans about concussive forces coming from football players that cause irreparable brain damage to human beings, the dangers associated with smoking cigarettes, the dangers associated with toxic medicines and vaccines, the harm caused from artificial sweeteners, fluoridated water, mercury fillings or many other protected lies that make up the fabric of our falsely perceived reality, remember one thing: Giant corporations and enabling governments suppress the truth.
The truth shall set you free! And that’s why you will never be told the truth.
