In this article, Congress is asking the EPA if the crumb rubber in artificial turf is bad for people. Across the country, there are thousands of fields with artificial turf, and a good amount of our population use these fields. The crumb rubber turf is made from pulverized tires which can contain carcinogens. There is no connection to cancer, but the EPA is testing this out. It’s interesting because what if something does come up? Most of the high school fields today use turf, and if it is bad for people, then what would the alternative be? This brings up questions, but let’s see what the EPA comes up with.
