Head hitting the ball harms football players. The scientists from Great Britain came to such conclusion. Scottish researchers have discovered that 20 blows committed successively, cause the significant changes in the brain. For example, the memory may be reduced by 40-70%. Recovery takes about 24 hours.
According to the neurobiologist Magdalena Letsvaart, an influence of the ball hitting is temporary. But it can cause the serious consequences.
It is worth noting that this is the first study that confirms the negative impact of the head playing football.
Dr. Letsvaart calls on all the football fans to think about what the consequences can be at a constant head playing.
In the United States of America, a ban on the head playing is valid for children under 10 years who are engaged in the football sections.
