I play soccer almost every day, and I'm worried about my GPA... So what do you think, what do experts say? Is there proof that heading can injure my brain?

And God said, 'Itís called a brain.'"

Judging by this first class plonka, I should say most definately yes.

From his complexion in that photo there is apparently one bottle Paul doesn't touch ... sun cream.

There is a lot of evidence of boxing being associated with long-term chronic brain damage.  I wouldn't be surprised if there is a risk from other sports which expose the head to traumatic shock.
