Anthropologist and biologist Andrea Wiley, who has written an entire book about milk, emphasizes the same point. “Drinking cow’s milk is so normative in Americans that kids who drink non-dairy milk likely have other things going on,” she says. Those other things could include allergies and steroid medications to treat the allergies that could also inhibit overall growth. She also cautions against lumping all non-dairy milks together. “Some, like soy, are high in protein and fortified with calcium and vitamins A and D,” she says. “Almond and rice milk are much lower in protein and may not be fortified.”
After the double-murder suicide, former wrestler Christopher Nowinski contacted Benoit's father, suggesting that years of trauma to his son's brain may have led to his actions. Tests were conducted on Benoit's brain by Julian Bailes, the head of neurosurgery at West Virginia University, and results showed that "Benoit's brain was so severely damaged it resembled the brain of an 85-year-old Alzheimer's patient." He was reported to have had an advanced form of dementia, similar to the brains of four retired NFL players who had suffered multiple concussions, sank into depression, and harmed themselves or others. Bailes and his colleagues concluded that repeated concussions can lead to dementia, which can contribute to severe behavioral problems.
