National Football League (NFL) players may be at increased risk of depression as they age due to brain damage resulting from concussions, according to two studies that will be presented at theAmerican Academy of Neurology's 65th Annual Meeting in San Diego,March 16 to 23, 2013.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that about 1.6 to 3.8 million sports concussions occur each year. While it is known that sports concussions can cause immediate disturbances in mood and thinking, few studies have investigated the long-term effects that may emerge later in life, especially those related to depression," said study author Nyaz Didehbani , PhD, of the Center for BrainHealth at TheUniversity of Texas at Dallas. "Our study shows that athletes who have sustained concussions in early adulthood may be at a higher risk for developing depression as they age compared to the general population. It is important when a concussive experience occurs that medical professionals appropriately include depression screening in their follow-up assessment. Depression is a treatable condition if the proper and necessary steps are taken."

As I entered the diner and quickly surveyed about sixteen men, most over the age of sixty, conversing as they ate breakfast, I immediately assumed that the interview was going to begin at introductions and end with the men disclosing that there wasn’t much to say about sex after sixty except how they fantasize about all the things they could have done in their earlier years with the half naked woman in the television commercial.  But within the first two minutes, the truths were coming at me faster than my brain could process them.  Finishing off the last of his breakfast, sixty-eight year old Brent started off by divulging that he is just as much interested in sex now as he was in his former years, the difference now being he is not always  physically capable of acting on those interests and he is  just fine with that. Between the medications he takes and the decrease in stamina he once had, the desire to have abundant sex has diminished.
