A Rhode Island congressman is vowing to give his cerebrum to inquire about into a degenerative mind sickness distinguished in previous football players.
Fair Rep. David Cicilline played Pop Warner football in his childhood. Ceaseless Traumatic Encephalopathy has been distinguished after death in more than 200 men and young men who played football at the adolescent, university and expert level.
The Providence Journal reports Cicilline made the vow Friday at a gathering in Washington on the effect of blackouts.
The board included scientists from Boston University who found that of 111 NFL players whose families gave their brains to investigate, 110 gave CTE suggestions.
Amid the discussion, Cicilline asked what Congress could do to help and one analyst proposed he give his cerebrum.
