BMX rider and former Subaru rally driver Dave Mirra, who committed suicide earlier this year, was found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the same disease found in many pro football players. Mirra is the first extreme sport athlete to be diagnosed with CTE, reports CNN.
Scientists believe CTE can be caused by repeated head trauma, which isn't uncommon in the sport of BMX. Mirra competed professionally in BMX racing from 1992-2011. In that time he won a total of 24 medals at the X Games, 14 of which were golds. Mirra also took up boxing after he retired and was hit by a car at age 19, which left him with a fractured skull and a blood clot in his brain.
CTE has gotten attention in the news recently thanks to former pro football players like Junior Seau and Adrian Robinson, both of whom committed suicide and were later found to suffer from CTE. The disease was also brought into the spotlight with help from the 2015 film “Concussion.” Many scientists theorize that CTE is caused by repeated hits to the head, and that with each hit the brain rattles around in the skull. This leads to a buildup of an abnormal protein called tau, which affects portions of the brain and results in Alzheimer's-like symptoms, including memory loss, mood swings, and rage. Other symptoms of CTE include depression, aggression, and disorientation. As of right now, scientists can only conclusively diagnose CTE after death.
Mirra's CTE diagnosis was confirmed by University of Toronto neuropathologist Dr. Lili-Naz Hazrati, who said the multiple tau deposits found in the athlete's brain were similar to those seen in pro football and hockey players diagnosed with the disease.
“We would like to thank our family, friends, and the overwhelming number of Dave's fans who have supported us during this difficult time,” said Mirra's wife, Lauren, in a statement. “We ask for your continued support in honoring Dave's legacy and for your patience as we plan to create a platform for CTE awareness and research.”

The NFL and CTE.

It's common knowledge now that CTE is a fact of life in professional football, or even as early as college football. It is also my opinion that the NFL isn't doing nearly enough to address the issue in part because there appears to be no way to play the sport that doesn't involve convulsive blows to the head/ brain. That said, we will continue to hear stories like those of Tyler Sash who died far to young and whose donated brain revealed a level of CTE equivalent to that of Junior Seau who played far longer than Sash in the same sport.

Science makes no distinction about what sport creates the problem. The job of researches is simply to point out that repeated blows to the head, including a helmet will potentially result in irreversible damage to the brain and anyone who decides to play that game does so with that knowledge. Without professional alternatives to earn equal money doing something else, these men will continue to ravage their brains in football and the NFL is apparently good with that despite its efforts to look into the matter. Until more is known, nothing will change. This sport is in trouble. What is now an inconvenient truth will at some point kill this sport as surely as it is killing it's participants. But until enough is done to force the NFL to do more, it's business as usual. And THAT, in my opinion, is the real sickness here..

A government study revealed some interesting data concerning the suicide rate of NFL players.

According to government research, NFL players are less likely to commit suicide than the average man in the general population.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health performed research on over 3,000 retired players, and that research showed that NFL players were less likely to kill themselves than the general population. Their data also found that NFL players were more likely to live longer, but faced higher chances of dying from brain disorders such as Alzheimers.

The suicide report involved 3,439 former players and found 12 suicides during the study years from 1979 to 2013. Suicide rates in the general population suggest 25 suicides would have been expected for men of comparable age. The results will appear in the September print edition of the American Journal of Sports Medicine. They appeared in the online edition last week.

The data should be taken with a grain of salt as it didn’t examine concussion data and its link to CTE. The growing link between suicide and CTE has been discovered in multiple players post-mortem, including former Kansas City Chief Jovan Belcher and former San Diego Charger Junior Seau.

The researchers stress more studies need to be done to resolve the connection between CTE and suicide.

“The issue of football players being at higher risk of suicide than the general population has been raised in the popular and scientific literature,” Dr. Douglas Trout, deputy director of the Division of Surveillance, Hazard and Field Studies at the CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, said in a media release.”

“Clearly, our one study does not resolve the issue of suicide in football,” the study’s conclusion says. “Before reliable conclusions can be drawn on any relationship among football play, concussion, CTE, and suicide, more work needs to be done in several areas.”

The data from the study will be published in the September print edition of the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
