How a concussion might increase the risk of suicide remains poorly understood.
:think:



Could this be another instance of how correlation is not necessarily causation? Perhaps more time in war zones alone would correlate with suicidal tendencies. I can see how length of time in war zones might be a hidden variable in the number of concussions one has sustained.
