Will Smith's New Movie "Concussion" Terrifies The NFL. Here's The Trailer.

September 02, 2015 1 min read

A big screen film is about to reveal a lot about the traumatic effects of concussions. On Christmas Day 2015, Concussion will premiere starring Will Smith as Bennet Omalu. Bennet is a real Pittsburgh forensic pathologist who discovered something shocking in the brains of football players. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative condition which is triggered by repeated blows to the head. It can create depression, dementia and severe behavioural problems. Countless deceased football players had CTE, leading many to question the safety of the sport for athletes. It was former Pittsburgh Steeler Mike Webster's passing that provoked Bennet to examine the brains of players. Mike suffered from dementia and severe depression before dying from a heart attack at age 50. Bennet was able to take a look inside Mike's brain and noticed a plethora of tangled proteins. He found the same issues in the brain tissue of Steelers player Terry Long, who had killed himself by drinking Antifreeze. "This stuff should not be in the brain of a 45-year-old man. This looks more like a 90-year-old brain with advanced Alzheimer's." Bennet stated. For years, the NFL attempted to cover up these findings, but Concussion will expose these health effects as more than just 'minor injuries'. Check out the chilling trailer and let us know your thoughts! [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Io6hPdC41RM[/embed] Source: Vox Do you follow us on Instagram?
