Should football helmets be blamed for head injuries?
By Denise A. Valenti
A jury in Colorado recently determined Rhett Ridolfi was entitled to $11.5 million dollars in damages for injuries. Ridolfi suffered a head injury during an August 2008 practice session with his Colorado high school football team, but he was not immediately taken to a hospital. The blow resulted in a concussion leaving Ridolfi paralyzed on his left side and having brain damage. His family filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the helmet he was wearing — Riddell — and the high school administration and football coaches. To what extent companies providing protective equipment for contact sports may be liable when the equipment does not fully protect against injury is not clear.

HealthDay News
The older vaccine for whooping cough that was phased out in the late 1990s is more effective than the current version of the vaccine, a new study contends. Teenagers who received four shots with the older vaccine before they were two years old were significantly less likely to become infected with whooping cough during a recent outbreak in California, compared to children who received all of their immunizations with the new vaccines, called the acellular vaccine.
