Letter to the editor in today's Chronicle:
Thank you for “Concerns over synthetic turf fields not enough to keep players off them” (Feb. 16). The cancer-causing ingredients which make up this turf have been found to destroy lives. Google the subject and you will want to hug your child immediately. And to the parent who says, “I’m going to trust the system?” How’s that working out for those in Flint, Mich.? Wake up! How will you feel when, in 15 years, your 10-year old develops cancer and you knew you could have stopped it?
