Game changer? The helmet debate in girls lacrosse
MPNnow.com
High school girls lacrosse is a unique sport. From the rules to the gear, the girls’ game differs greatly from what the boys play. One of the most noticeable differences is that the girls don’t wear helmets. Many girls who play the game say they are opposed to donning helmets. Many coaches, too, say there are good reasons for foregoing headgear. Even experts don’t believe helmets are necessarily going to prevent concussions. Still, one local girl’s family has experienced the pain of a severe injury from playing the sport.

University of Washington

The key to limiting sports head trauma may be here, and it's not a new helmet
Yahoo Sports
Generally, the enumerated sporting goods advances called for focus squarely on helmets and padding. Now, one new biometric company feels it may have an answer that will help make it much more clear when a player has suffered a case of head trauma, and it doesn't involve a new helmet or more or better padding.

The Daily Mail
Chinese scientists predict stem cells obtained from urine could allow humans to regrow lost teeth. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has created tooth-like structures in mice and believes one day bioengineered "tooth buds" could be transplanted into humans who have lost their teeth. The primitive tooth-like structures are the first solid tissues to be developed using a technique in which discarded cells from human waste can be coaxed into becoming stem cells.

Concussions on the field, repercussions in school
The Wall Street Journal
VideoBriefThe latest question for researchers studying the consequences of concussions isn't when student-athletes can safely get back in the game. It's how long to wait before they can return to class. Brain injury specialists say the mental exertion of normal classwork could even worsen the effects of a concussion. The harder students recovering from a concussion try to focus on any mental activity, the more severe their headaches or dizziness may become.

Prolonged thumb-sucking can cause a dental and even a skeletal open bite
DentistryIQ
Think about it, a seemingly harmless act as a child can change the facial form of the child for life and result in various respiratory, dental, and speech problems — the child would have difficulty with something as simple as biting into a sandwich or a pizza slice. Many of us can picture this scenario: a crying child driving you and everyone around you to the brink of insanity. What finally gets the child to stop? Sucking happily on his or her thumb. But this temporary relief can have serious consequences.
