Why Are Cancer Links to Astroturf Being Ignored?

TruthStream Media | Oct 9, 2014


Millions of kids and professional athletes all over the world play on this stuff for years of their lives, but now there's a deadly new revelation that synthetic, petrochemical-laden turf may actually cause cancer. Something is very wrong when you have 18-year-old girls coming down with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in clusters who all just so happen to have spent years and years playing soccer, for example...

These people — these *kids* — deserve better than this.

Worse in the long run, though, is the terminal cancer of corporations protecting their potentially hazardous products through a haze of lobbyists and special interest "councils" that build up layers of protection in the forms of everything from asking the wrong scientific questions to providing red herring studies to basically finding any way out of culpability and losing even one red cent off their bottom lines at the expense of everyone's health and our very lives.

That is basically how this country is run anymore, and it's utterly disgusting.

Thus, Aaron decided to go off.
