The unseen damage that is caused by war is wreaking havoc on our veterans.  Between the astronomical rate of suicide and the PTSD that is rampant within the military community, there is a growing need for research to determine useful treatments for these heroes that have volunteered to protect our country.

Dr. Vassilis Koliatsos, the senior researcher of a new study, has found that soldiers who have been exposed to IED blasts, all have “a distinct pattern of damage to nerve fibers in key regions of the brain.”

With further studies, this information has the potential to lead to a treatment for our veterans who have been exposed to the blasts of war.
