There are 3 comments on 8 Major Findings and Headlines from BU CTE Researchers in the Past Year

    1. If you watch the documentary League of Denial they specifically state that they have found brain changes in steeplechase riders. If I recall it had more to do with dementia as at the time of the statement they hadn’t studied any football players brains for CTE yet. The comments were about boxers and steeplechase riders. So perhaps show jump riders may be a cohort to examine.
