Can someone tell me how to change "sustained" in this following sentence: The study also found that, in 2014, teens affected by TBI while playing sports were twice as likely to consume energy drinks then teens affected by TBI sustained from other injuries.

    "caused" could work

    but you'd probably want to say "caused by"

    but... I think I found a way to reformulate it. How about: "caused by other injuries"... Oh, well, you said it @zaraxx

    This is an article from yesterday: "Teens who reported having a traumatic brain injury in the past year were seven times more likely to have consumed at least five energy drinks in the past week than those teens with no history of traumatic brain injury, according to a new study." this means that TBI may not be caused by other injuries.

    You seem to have different information! Perhaps a little research to clear that up before actually writing.

    Not really... It says it pretty much word per word...

    But the article I quoted is not comparing the right thing, with drinks and without history of TBI, so they are not mutually exclusive.
