David Cicilline U.S Congress Man Pledges To Donates His Brain For Research.

U.S congressman, David Cicilline has pledged to donate his brain to concussion research after listening to the testimony of former NFL players about traumatic brain injury
The Democratic lawmaker from Rhode Island who played Pop Warner football in his youth, agreed to make the donation after he dies in order to help researchers study the effects and impacts of the widespread injury that is usually caused by a serious blow to the head or body. 
According to the Providence Journal, Cicilline made the announcement during a forum on the Hill on Friday, during which a panel of researchers from Boston University said their study showed an overwhelming majority of the brains — 110 out of the 111 donated to the study from deceased NFL players showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
