Progress has been made in the on-going effort to battle the condition called CTE, prevalent in NFL players and pro wrestlers. Scientists have scanned brains of living ex-NFL players and found an abnormal "Tau" protein, and this is going towards diagnosing CTE while the subjects are still alive so that their early deaths from suicide (and other factors caused by the damage in their brains) can be prevented.
