We all have our favorite sport, well most of us do. But with sport comes risk.

There are a myriad of sports related health issues such as routine sports injuries, heat related illnesses, sudden cardiac arrest especially in triathlons and drugs in sports, notably steroids or their derivatives.

Perhaps the biggest controversy facing sports today, besides sudden death and drugs, is concussions especially in contact sports.

Anybody can sustain a concussion, but those who engage in contact sports have an increased risk of repeated and serious concussions that can manifest as dementia in later life. The sad thing is there is also evidence that concussions occur long before an athlete reaches the professional level. So, if you are not willing to run these risks, especially when it comes to your child, contact sports should be avoided.
