On 1 May 2017 Reuters reported:
Military service members who sustain concussions in combat may experience worsening symptoms for several years after their injuries, particularly if they have psychiatric problems, a small U.S. study suggests. About one in five U.S. service members deployed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan suffered a head injury, researchers note in JAMA Neurology. Most of them endured mild uncomplicated brain injuries or concussions. . . . With concussions, combat veterans were more likely to have post-traumatic stress disorder, severe depression, anxiety, and sleep difficulties. ... 'In short, there is nothing 'mild' about these injuries,' lead study author Christine Mac Donald of the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle said by email.
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.
. . . In addition, satisfaction with life, disability, and the severity of neurobehavioral and psychiatric symptoms were worse with patients who had concussions than participants who didn't have brain injuries.
