As the article points out:
Iraq has brought back one of the worst afflictions of World War I trench warfare: shell shock. The brain of a soldier exposed to a roadside bomb is shocked, truly.
And this point:
"TBIs from Iraq are different," said P. Steven Macedo, a neurologist and former doctor at the Veterans Administration. Concussions from motorcycle accidents injure the brain by stretching or tearing it, he noted. But in Iraq, something else is going on. "When the sound wave moves through the brain, it seems to cause little gas bubbles to form," he said. "When they pop, it leaves a cavity. So you are littering people's brains with these little holes."
And the medical system for soldiers mostly the Verteran's Administration is woefully unprepared for this. Another off-shoot of the poor planning of this administation in regards to the war.
I hope that this gets the attention it deserves and action is taken to make sure anyone who needs treatment gets it.
