TBI rate among Iraq war soldiers may be lower than previously thought

It appears that a new study is reporting that the frequency at which

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs may be lower than previously thought

among soldiers

“Traumatic brain injury, described as the signature wound of the Iraq war, may be less to blame for soldiers' symptoms than doctors once thought, contends a provocative military study that suggests post-traumatic stress and depression often play a role.”



“That would be good news because there are successful treatments for those conditions, said several nonmilitary doctors who praised the research.”
