On 19 April 2017 Reuters reported:
In high school sports played by both girls and boys, girls are about 50 percent more likely to get a concussion, according to a recent U.S. study. The may have to do with physical or equipment differences and how often girls and boys report concussions they experience, but the result indicates a need for more research and better prevention strategies, researchers say.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Nearly 8 million U.S. high school students participate in sports every year, with more than 2 million competing in the sports where concussion is common: football, ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer, the study team writes in Journal of Athletic Training.
Overall, there were nearly 4 sports-related concussions per 10,000 participations in practices or competitions, with the highest rates in football (9.21 concussions per 10,000 participations), boys' lacrosse (6.65 per 10,000) and girls' soccer (6.11 per 10,000).
There were no reported concussions in boys' crew, cross-country, golf, swimming, and diving or in girls' golf.
Among the many sports in which both sexes participated, including baseball, softball, basketball, crew, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer and others, sport-related concussion rates averaged 56 percent higher in girls than in boys.
In baseball and softball, girls' concussion rate was four times that of boys.
