Many people believe children are being excessively forced to excel and try hard in sports, especially football. This may be true to some but is up in the air as one of the most touchy subjects. Americans love football, although our kids may have long-term effects from it. A new study from the Boston University School Of Medicine took a handful of retired pro football players and put them to the test. Half of the bunch had played organized tackle football from the time before they were 12 years old, half had not. This study concluded the half that did not had much higher brain capabilities.
