Should heading in football be banned?

If evidence is found to be supporting the claim that football causes brain damage, then how should the game change? Football will be a changed sport if a defender can’t head a ball. Another option is limiting the age and the number of times a player can head a ball. For example, banning players under 15 years of age from heading. Meanwhile, another solution is limiting senior players to heading the ball in matches and one training session only. A final solution is to change the football itself so that the impact when heading it is lessened.
