Will soccer players ever wear helmets?

Concussions Tragic: As a player& doctor i think the legacy of soccer concussions are potentially destructive over a lifetime for players just as we have seen in the nfl.

A well conditioned athlete can compensate with training. ...Read more

No limitations: The short answer is that breast implants should not limit your lifestyle.

Most people are not comfortable in them later in pregnancy, but they can't cause any real harm to moms or babies. If you are comfortable in them, go ahead and wear whatever you like. Comfort and fit are the most important features. ...Read more
