What do you do with the millions and millions of old tires......
How about crush them up and make artificial turf out of them. Sounds like a great idea except the old tires are made with many chemicals including many known carcinogens that cause cancer.
Soccer goalies who spend a lot of time diving, and rolling around, and inhaling, and ingesting these toxic pieces of rubber have been coming down with cancer and dying.
The government does not want to talk about it. They don't want to study it.
If the government studies the problem they will realize how big it is.
There are 12,000 sports fields in the United States made with crumb rubber. Those would all need to be changed once the government confirmed they are giving people cancer. Better to just ignore the problem and hope it goes away. That is exactly what they are doing.
Telling the Billionaire owners of the NFL that all their fields have to be changed is not something the government wants to do. So they will just close their eyes tight and think happy thoughts.....
