Minnesota’s Pollution Control Agency also is a plaintiff in the lawsuit.

Women More Vulnerable to Concussions Due to ‘More Breakable’ Nerve Fibers http://ow.ly/rXxz30gWWtb According to laboratory tests using rat and human neuronal cells, researchers found that female axons (the long, slender part of the neuron that carries messages from one cell to another) were smaller than male axons, and were more likely to break when applying the same amount of force expected from a simulated traumatic brain injury (TBI).
