WWE Icon Chyna's Brain to be Donated for Research

Chyna Wrestler 

Hey, readers here is a food for thought. What do you think would happen to your body when you die, would it just be buried, cremated or just disposed of.. Well here is something different.

Representatives for the wrestler and entertainer Chyna confirmed that her brain will be donated for research into the degenerative brain disease, CTE  

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy also known as CTE can result in Alzheimer's-like symptoms such as mood swings, memory loss and rage. It can potentially lead to suicide. Researchers believe the disease is a result of repeated hits to the head that yield a buildup of an abnormal protein called tau. CTE can be definitively diagnosed only after death.

Chyna, who was nicknamed the Ninth Wonder of the World, was found dead by the Police in her apartment on April 20, 2016. She was aged 45.

Chyna died from an accidental overdose that took place over a period of about three weeks of her unintentionally and inappropriately handling two legally prescribed, prescription medications.

Chyna's spokesman Anthony Anzalo said her brain will be examined by Dr. Bennet Omalu. Omalu was the first to document CTE in the brain of a professional football player. Will Smith played him in the 2015 movie "Concussion."

CTE has been connected to the deaths of former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson and San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau. Recently, both racing star Dale Earnhardt Jr. and women's soccer icon Brandi Chastain have promised to donate their brains for CTE research.

Researchers at Boston University have identified the disease in nearly 200 people. CTE has been identified in over 90% of the brains the researchers have studied.

So what would you want to be done to your body after you die.
