One studio reveals that soccer players are more likely to have brain problems after age 65

London: one studio published on Friday revealed that soccer players are more likely to develop brain health problems after age 65 than other individuals. The studiocalled Scores, by researchers at the English University of East Anglia, was based on test online to assess cognitive functions remotely and monitor deterioration in brain health. Around 145 professional footballers attended, including former Crystal Palace striker Mark Bright, former Welsh duo Jeremy Goss and compatriot Ewan Roberts. The studio included 55 former players aged 65 and over and their results were compared to 27 non-footballers in the group of studio aged 65 and older, as well as with a control group of thousands of participants who were pooled from other studies and subjected to the same prove. According to the results of the studio, former footballers aged between 40 and 50 perform better than the rest of the participants, but the trend reverses with age. “When they were 65, things started to get worse,” said Dr. Michael Gray, who mentored it studio. He continued: “Football players over the age of 65 perform worst in areas of reaction, executive functions (which include managing and controlling non-routine situations or doing multiple things at once) or placement. Clearly, these are early warning signs of declining brain health.” This new studio is in This line with the results of a survey conducted by the University of Glasgow which found that footballers were three and a half times more likely than the general population to die from a neurodegenerative disease such as dementia or Parkinson’s disease.
