Canadian researchers surveyed 8,900 11- to 20-year-olds from Ontario and found that about 20% had a serious head trauma at some point in their lives. Sports injuries accounted for 56% of head trauma cases that happened in the last 12 months. Poor academic performance and frequent alcohol and cannabis use were linked to increased traumatic brain injury risk, according to the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
