On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the new film "Concussion", a dramatization of the battles of Dr. Bennet Omalu to bring to public attention the connections between head trauma, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and NFL football.
In this film, Dr. Omalu is very ably played by Will Smith.
This stunning film, which is a must-see, premieres in the U.S. December 25.
Everybody in America, and everwhere else when it comes out, should see this film.
Dr. Omalu also recently wrote an opinion piece entitled "Don't Let Kids Play Football".
Also discussed are the establishment of the Bennet Omalu Foundation, which aims to fund research, raise awareness, provide care, and find cures for people suffering from CTE and traumatic brain injury; how this will all affect the future of the contact and combat sports; and much more.
