Does Football Cause Pedophilia? Does War?
Does Football make you rape children? How about war?

This is more than a bit histrionic but a nice place to start:
[link to jezebel.com]

"She cites research that found that adult pedophiles tended to have been subjected to more childhood brain trauma than their non-pedophiliac counterparts. In addition, more research has found that hypersexuality can develop after adult konks on the head, which can include pedophilia. One researcher surmised that head injuries don't change sexuality, but rather unlock aspects of a person's sexuality that were otherwise kept under control. A third study found that some men exhibit pedophiliac behavior after experiencing symptoms of brain disease.

Jerry Sandusky was a football player. Jerry Sandusky sexually abused some kids. DID FOOTBALL CAUSE SEXUAL ABUSE?"


Another group of folks who tend get bashed in the head a lot:

[link to articles.latimes.com]

"Military veterans in prison are more than twice as likely to have been convicted for sex offenses as nonveteran inmates, federal researchers say. They cannot say why.

A study released Sunday by the Bureau of Justice Statistics compared the populations of inmates who served in the military and those who did not.

Veterans are half as likely to be incarcerated as those without service experience in the first place, researchers found, but 23 percent of the veterans in prison were sex offenders, compared with 9 percent of nonveteran inmates.

"We couldn't come to any definite conclusion as to why," said Margaret Noonan, a study author
."

Even though the link to tramatic brain injury and Kluver-Bucy syndrome is well documented:

[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

"Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health issue. In the long term, after traumatic brain injury, the most disabling problems are generally related to neuropsychiatric sequelae, including personality change and cognitive impairment, rather than neurophysical sequelae (Fleminger, 2008). In some individuals, the TBI may cause decades-lasting vulnerability to psychiatric illnesses (Koponen et al., 2002). Recent evidence from clinical studies and animal models of brain injury suggests that neuronal and glial loss might progress after the initial insult in selectively vulnerable regions of the brain, such as the hippocampus (Jorge et al., 2007)."

And Kluver-Bucy syndrome causes pedophilia:

With more football injuries than ever:

[link to www.wcnc.com]

"Catastrophic brain injuries associated with full-contact football appear to be rising, especially among high school students, according to a new report."

And hundreds of thousands of veterans returning home with head injuries

[link to www.usatoday.com]

"Pentagon officials estimated for the first time Wednesday that up to 360,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans may have suffered brain injuries. Among them are 45,000 to 90,000 veterans whose symptoms persist and warrant specialized care."


We may need a whole bunch of these:

American "Football" is, obviously, totally gay.

It's not just Penn State, the preverted costumes, the Sanduskys just hoverin' over young boy ass.

It's the name of the teams, that are most suspect.

Green Bay "Packers".

The "Rams".

Cleveland "Browns".

It's quite evident, when you look at it in an unbiased way.

Soccer is not without issues:

[link to www.businessweek.com]

"Those who “headed” the ball more than 1,300 times a year, the equivalent of a few times a day, were more likely to have injuries to areas of the brain responsible for attention, memory, planning, organizing and vision, according to research presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in Chicago."
[link to www.dana.org]

"Early on, CTE causes emotional instability, poor concentration, word-finding difficulties, depression, suicidal thoughts and problems with impulse control. However, CTE also involves memory problems that eventually progress to dementia. A key feature is that the illness continues to progress for years after the trauma and concussions. Football players are not alone: sports like ice hockey, soccer and boxing are thought to increase the risk for CTE and soldiers exposed to bomb blasts have developed CTE. All of the first six NFL former players who were found to have CTE by the Boston group had died by age 50 and three were suicides"

Re: Does Football Cause Pedophilia? Does War?
Brain science seems to be becoming a priority recently


[link to www.businessweek.com]

I’m a big football fan,” President Obama told the New Republic in an interview, “but I have to tell you, if I had a son I’d have to think long and hard before I’d let him play football.” Obama, who roots for the Chicago Bears, predicted that “those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence.”

Beyond the present litigation, the NFL faces a more ominous longer-term question. New research suggests the peril players face may not be limited to car wreck hits. It may extend to the relentless, day-in-and-day-out collisions that are the essence of the game. If science one day determines that merely playing serious tackle football substantially increases the danger of debilitating brain disease—as smoking cigarettes makes lung cancer much more likely—it’s conceivable that the NFL could go the way of professional boxing.



[link to www.nytimes.com]


The Obama administration is planning a decade-long scientific effort to examine the workings of the human brain and build a comprehensive map of its activity, seeking to do for the brain what the Human Genome Project did for genetics


The project, which the administration has been looking to unveil as early as March, will include federal agencies, private foundations and teams of neuroscientists and nanoscientists in a concerted effort to advance the knowledge of the brain’s billions of neurons and gain greater insights into perception, actions and, ultimately, consciousness.


Why the focus?


[link to www.today.com]

Two new studies — one in veterans and the other in retired football players — add to the mounting evidence linking head injuries to an increased the risk of dementia later in life.

Veterans who had been diagnosed with a brain injury, anything from a concussion to a severe head wound, were more than twice as likely to develop dementia compared to those with no injury to the brain, researchers reported today at the Alzheimer’s Association’ International Conference in Paris.

The results were even more striking in a study of retired football players: 35 percent of the former National Football League players had signs of dementia, which compares to a 13 percent Alzheimer’s rate in the general population.

What makes us what we are?

[link to www.theatlantic.com]

Whitman’s body was taken to the morgue, his skull was put under the bone saw, and the medical examiner lifted the brain from its vault. He discovered that Whitman’s brain harbored a tumor the diameter of a nickel. This tumor, called a glioblastoma, had blossomed from beneath a structure called the thalamus, impinged on the hypothalamus, and compressed a third region called the amygdala. The amygdala is involved in emotional regulation, especially of fear and aggression. By the late 1800s, researchers had discovered that damage to the amygdala caused emotional and social disturbances. In the 1930s, the researchers Heinrich Klüver and Paul Bucy demonstrated that damage to the amygdala in monkeys led to a constellation of symptoms, including lack of fear, blunting of emotion, and overreaction. Female monkeys with amygdala damage often neglected or physically abused their infants. In humans, activity in the amygdala increases when people are shown threatening faces, are put into frightening situations, or experience social phobias. Whitman’s intuition about himself—that something in his brain was changing his behavior—was spot-on.


Guess we are going to find out:

While researchers can already track the activity of perhaps 100 or so brain neurons at a time, the new opportunity is to connect those on a large scale and then measure activity at the detail level and the whole brain level, Church said.

“This is about basic technology as well knowledge,” Church said in a telephone interview. “We stand at the doorway of a fundamental intersection of nanochemical sensors that can read or write neurons and synthetic biology. It’s overripe for this merger.”


Well heck, lets just throw out the concept of free will entirely and just become Borg? Is there ever a middle ground.

Bet they try the new implants on the pedophiles first. Synaptic control is better than an ankle bracelet.

GLP-where you can read the breaking news years before it breaks

[link to america.aljazeera.com]

Could soldiers, like football players, be at risk of brain disease
Around 19 percent of returning troops experienced a probable traumatic brain injury while deployed, most of which were concussions, according to the global policy think tank RAND Corporation. Because of the widespread use of improvised explosive devices, many troops are concussed again and again, making traumatic brain injury the so-called “signature injury” of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Yeah. You can't go running around with an erection at any given time too. Not only would it show with remarkable ease, but you can cause "accidents" during plays... Damn it's hard to keep a straight face with this line of jokes. lol

But as for you, OP, initially I was going to make fun of this thread but after seeing that you're drop dead serious and actually provide a fair amount of evidence to support your theory, that's cool. At least it's not a modern bullshit scheme to make Human society so very hyper sexualized that men and women can't go about their daily business without becoming horny at least once a day. I haven't any doubts that this is why alot of rapes happen in real life too.

It sounds silly, but with all these football coaches losing control...and not just sexually:

Eventually, with the help of a Taser, police were able to take Garnett into custody, but it seems the fun didn’t stop there. Police say Garnett’s uncooperative behavior continued at the hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

“Garnett tried to kick a camera out of the hands of an officer who was trying to document the assistant high school football coach’s injuries, police said,” the Hour reports.

“He also repeatedly called one officer a child, according to police. A doctor said he would have to administer sedatives to Garnett if his unruly behavior continued, and Garnett agreed to calm down, police said. Still, he harassed a group of male nurses, telling them, ‘You must be a real Tommy Toughnuts,’ according to police.”


Sounds like a very,very stupid drunk, but it could very well be a symptom of what used to be a rare condition:


[link to www.mayoclinic.com]

Frontotemporal dementia (frontotemporal lobar degeneration) is an umbrella term for a diverse group of uncommon disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain — the areas generally associated with personality, behavior and language.

In frontotemporal dementia, portions of these lobes atrophy or shrink. Signs and symptoms vary, depending upon the portion of the brain affected. Some people with frontotemporal dementia undergo dramatic changes in their personality and become socially inappropriate, impulsive or emotionally indifferent, while others lose the ability to use and understand language


And that is exactly what football players get. Drinking just makes it worse:

But, this year was different. There was an incident with the TSA airport security that almost took them both down – literally. Her husband, proudly wearing his Super Bowl ring and trademark cowboy hat, refused to remove these items and place them on the conveyor belt to be scanned. In his mind, he did not understand that there had been a 9/11, he did not understand why they did not recognize him, and ultimately he thought they were trying to rob him of his precious possessions.

As John grew more frustrated with the TSA agents who, unaware of his diagnosis, thought he was just being a belligerent traveler, the agents grew increasingly irritated and finally tackled him but not after chasing the six-foot two-inch 220-pound former football player who dragged the agents several feet through the airport until several more agents joined in, handcuffed him and took him off to jail.
