Could your child’s sports turf cause cancer?

Federal agencies are launching a nationwide investigation into artificial turf. They’re questioning the crumb rubber and what kind of chemicals could hurt our kids.

The concern is that the materials can cause cancer. Scientists will break down the rubber athletes play on and find out what it’s made of.  A total of 153 athletes, mostly soccer players, said they now have cancer after spending a lot of time on those types of fields.
