Young Athletes Risk Back Injury by Playing Too Much
NPR
Whether at home or during recess at his elementary school in suburban Los Angeles, 10-year-old Jack Everett's life now is about sitting still. "Well, I can eat lunch with friends and I play cards," Jack says. But his classmates are out running and jumping outside.

The Verge

Just last week, for the 30th straight year, pro football was ranked the favorite sport of American adults by a massive margin.

Helmet Design Lowered Risk of Concussion
dailyRx
The hard-hitting action on a football field creates a high risk environment for concussions, but one new study shows how better helmet designs might provide better protection. Researchers placed special sensors in the helmets of college football players over five seasons to collect data on how well two helmet designs protected players during hard impacts. This study showed that at least one new helmet design provided substantially better protection from head injury than an older design from the same company.

NFL Nutritionist on Why Healthy Eating Makes Champions
The Huffington Post
With its bodies nearly as big as its tackles, football might be the sport with the most obvious connection to food. But whereas the emphasis was once on eating to increase the size of an offensive lineman, balanced meals and performance-based nutrition have now risen to the forefront. We chatted recently with Susan M. Kleiner, Ph.D., RD, a nutrition consultant for the Seattle Seahawks, about what it takes to feed and fuel the NFL's top dogs.
