Movie "Concussion" (December 2015) Raises Awareness of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

Click on this link to see the official trailer for the movie "Concussion" starring Will Smith next month:
I've been waiting almost a full year to see this movie coming out next month about Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which, despite the NFL's best attempts to suggest the diagnosis is not based on good science, and despite the money they have spent trying to obscure and discredit the research, is a real and significant problem, that doesn't just affect football, but any sport that causes a series of "minor" sub-concussive injuries until a final "minor" injury tips the scale, revealing significant and continuing decline of brain function.

Ask Muhammed Ali if CTE is a myth.
