Invisible Combat Scars Now Visible According to New Study

According to an article by Allen L Roland, PhD, A new study supports what a small group of military researchers has suspected for decades: that modern warfare destroys the brain which has huge implications for Veteran health Care. If Perl’s discovery is confirmed by other scientists, which I believe it already has, and if one of these bomb blast’s short-term signatures is indeed a pattern of scarring in the brain, similar to asbestos scarring of the lungs ~ then the implications for the military and for society at large would be vast. Much of what has passed for emotional trauma may be reinterpreted, and many veterans may step forward to demand recognition of an injury that heretofore could not be definitively diagnosed until after death ~ such as football concussions and related brain disease.
