First ratings for youth football helmets address sport's largest pool of athletes

Virginia Tech

The majority of people playing football in the U.S. aren’t NFL players or collegiate athletes —they’re youth players, less than 14 years old. But until now, there hasn’t been independent data evaluating the effectiveness of the helmets these athletes wear on the field. With the release of youth football-helmet ratings by the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab — already renowned for their helmet ratings for varsity football and other sports — consumers can see which helmets best reduce concussion risk.

Are There Zika Reservoirs in the Americas?

Washington University in St. Louis

Most emerging infectious diseases affecting people are zoonotic — they make the jump from other animals to humans. Transmission, however, is a two-way street. These zoonotic diseases can also jump from humans to other animals. Even if a disease is eradicated in humans, it can live on in animals that act as reservoirs, ensuring that the risk of human infection is never entirely eradicated.
