Played football in high school. MMA fighter for 2 years now. Many hard blows to the head in both sports. Could i possibly have CTE or develop CTE?
Would my two or three concussions over a high school/college sports career likely lead to chronic brain problems later in life?
Evolving data: There is a considerable level of research looking into this area, but so far it seems concussions are cumulative in effect, but the level of reserve is fairly significant. Clearly, the greater the degree and frequency is key here, and that minimal level described probably has little effect. However, so many other factors are involved (genetics, past history, etc) that one cannot be definitive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is kissing a high-risk behavior, low-risk behavior, or a no-risk behavior for contracting hiv? I'm a high school student and i'm taking a health & physical education course. I'm having a hard time finding the answer to this question.
According : According to the center for disease control (one of the best sources for accurate information): "it depends on the type of kissing. There is no risk from closed-mouth kissing. There is an extremely low-risk from deep, open-mouth kissing if there are sores or bleeding gums and blood is exchanged. Therefore, persons living with HIV should avoid this behavior with a non-infected partner." for the sake of your homework, i'd go with no-risk. Below i've attached the cdc website on HIV transmission. Maybe you'll get extra credit for specifying the no-risk vs. Low risk behaviors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
