I just checked CNN headlines...

And can't get past the Otto Warmbier articles. Wow. NK really did murder a vibrant young man if the reporting is correct.

Can anyone speak to what could have been done to him to have tissue loss in ALL of his brain. Report says no botulism like NK says. Drs also reported no trauma on the brain. Did they do a lobotomy??
Wth?? could have caused a salutorian to die of massive brain tissue loss in one and a half years??????????????????????????

... without DoD regulated mTBI testing.

it's what's insidious about mTBI, people don't know unless there's some bad symptoms ... lack of energy, bad short term memory, stuttering while talking, seizures.

mTBI's are bad news ... most can last 3 months, but 10 -20 % are lifetime
