New York Daily News: The Brains In Football: Meet the doctors trying to solve NFL’s CTE issue

Michael Kaplen was quoted in this article by the New York Daily News, entitled The Brains In Football: Meet the doctors trying to solve NFL’s CTE issue

“Football is a concussion-delivery system. You cannot make it safe because after any hit, the brain is moving within the skull,” says Kaplen. “There is no such thing as safe tackling. This whole focus on CTE — while troubling in terms of the nature of the disease — is misdirected in terms of the problem. The problem is repetitive head trauma, where CTE is one of many end results. Repetitive hits cause brain damage.”
