Dr. Bennet Omalu blasts journalist who disputes dangers of CTE in NFL players

In 2005, Dr. Bennet Omalu discovered that many NFL players are in danger of severe brain injuries that could affect them long after their playing days are over. Dr. Omalu and the University of Pittsburgh published his findings in a paper titled “Chronic Traumatic Encephalopa.” Last week, the Washington Post published an article, “CTE doctor Bennet Omalu has profited selling distorted science.”
