Report: little evidence that helmets prevent concussions
A new report from the Institute of Medicine says it's not clear if better head protection could prevent concussions in young athletes.
The report found little evidence to support the idea that face masks or helmets prevent concussions.
The report recommends a national system to better track sports-related concussions, especially in high-contact sports including hockey, football, and lacrosse.
