Heading balls 'is risk to health'

BBC Health

Doctors have found more evidence to suggest that heading a football may be bad for health.

Doctors in Turkey carried out tests on 30 amateur footballers. Many were found to have potentially serious neck and spine problems.

These ranged from poor flexibility to damaged discs at the top of the spine, according to New Scientist magazine.

Interesting legal position created in schools now this information is in the public domain... Presumably it wouldn't be the end of the world to remove "head-ing" from the game of, (wait for it) "foot-ball"...
