From ¶3...

"...However, a new study of eight men released earlier this week featured in Sports Medicine Research shows that CTE had been found in six of those subjects, who had no history of contact sports or history of neurotrauma..."


But when you go to their website, they disclose nothing but their articles' authors; no funding (sources); no mission statement; no ethics statement...

So that makes me question this source - still, most CTE research has focused on veterans of high-level football...

Eight men is an awfully small sample size.

Lung cancer can be found in people who never smoked. Someone who chained smoked their whole like can live in their 80's and be active like my father...meh.

Either way, smoking is bad for the lungs and so is getting hit with massive force in the head.
