itcamefromschenectady: Benevolent Misanthrope: itcamefromschenectady: Benevolent Misanthrope: To date, only 33 dead ex-NFL players have been diagnosed with CTE, along with a small handful from other sports. But according to [this] list, not a single one of those diagnosed with CTE was a female athlete, and there's little evidence that anybody's looking for them.Well, duh. When it comes to medical research, men are always treated as more important, unless there's a huge campaign for years, like with breast cancer.You're reading an article that says male athletes have fewer concussions, linking to a source that says male athletes have more concussions. And that's evidence nobody cares about women's health?You're commenting on a statement from that same article saying that no one is looking for signs of CTE in female athletes, but only in male athletes, and taking it as a sign that medical research is as interested in women's health as men's?No, I'm not, and it doesn't say that anyway.
