Study: Brain Damage Caused By Bomb Blasts Unique From Other Injuries.

USA Today (1/15, Zoroya) reports Johns Hopkins scientists “studying the brains of young veterans who died long after war shed light on a growing theory” that the “damage caused by bomb blasts” is “unique enough to be its own disease.” The study “reveal brain lesions different than those that occur in sports, car crashes or drug overdoses.” Co-author Vassilis Koliatsos, said, “We saw a pattern that we had not seen before.”
