Researchers have discovered that even slight brain injurys can be extremely destructive and potentially deadly. Previously, many perceived that only severely traumatic brain injurys (TBI) could cause catastrophic changes in victims but a new study has determined otherwise.
A new study published in the July issue of the Journal of Neuroscience may leave those in Ohio that have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on the job a little more concerned about their long-term health. According to researchers from Tufts University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School, the effects of a moderate to severe brain injury can disrupt potentially crucial proteins and enzymes that have been connected to Alzheimer's disease.
Individuals working on a building or any sort of construction in Columbus, Ohio, may want to be more careful, even when they believe nothing could go wrong. A recent construction accident in another state reinforces this warning.
