Have the Surgeon General review the NFL's concussion policy with regard to CTE
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
There are clear scientific links between the degenerative neurological disease CTE and the repeated head trauma which football players experience, whether it is at a junior, high school, college, or NFL level.
The US surgeon general had the power to require alcohol distributors to print notices on bottles warning pregnant women of potential birth defects and also had the power to require cigarette and cigar distributors to print warnings on packs about the links between their products and cancer.
This is a petition for the surgeon general to review the NFL's claims that there is no link between football and CTE, and to hopefully use the same power described above to require that football equipment manufacturers include warnings about CTE on all football players' helmets.
