Study finds that NFL players are dying at a faster rate & younger than baseball pros


Among the NFL players in the study, far more died of cardiovascular disease than neurodegenerative disease: nearly 500 versus 39, respectively.

It could be useful to control the study for basic things like height and weight?

American football players are huge. The game has some similarities to, like, sumo wrestling.


My thought also. I think the comparison against baseball players is inherently biased. Compare against 300# (mostly) African American males, I gotta think you would not see the same results.

After reading the title I was forced to repeat over and over, like a mantra: “It’s worth studying things that seem obvious, it’s worth studying things that seem obvious…”
