New Study Finds No Increased Cancer Risk In Soccer Players

September 11, 2019


THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT ARTIFICIAL RUBBER CAUSES CANCER, ACCORDING TO HEALTH OFFICIALS IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, THAT IS NOT THE FINAL WORD ON THIS CONTROVERSIAL MATERIAL THAT WAS USED IN SPORTS FIELDS. BRIAN HAS BEEN TRACKING THE ISSUE FOR A YEAR. THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE YOUR KIDS PLAY ON IT, AND IT IS MADE FROM RECYCLED TIRES, THE SYNTHETIC TURF INSTALLED IN THE LAST YEAR. THERE ARE PLAYERS THAT I KNEW VERY WELL AND THEY CAME DOWN WITH LYMPHOMA. CANCER CONCERNS SURFACED WHEN AMY GRIFFIN STARTED A LIST OF SOCCER PLAYERS THAT SHE HAD MET WHO HAD BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. MY LIST WAS 12 OR 15 AND I STARTED SAYING I NEED TO KEEP A LIST THIS IS REALLY WEIRD. IT IS LESS CRUEL UP TO 237 ATHLETES AROUND THE COUNTRY, WITH KIDS LIKE JACK LYONS, BRYANT, A YOUNG GOALIE DIAGNOSED WITH LYMPHOMA AND THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT TOOK THAT LIST AND THROUGH ANALYSIS GUY DETERMINED THERE WAS NO GREATER INCIDENT OF CANCER IN THE SOCCER PLAYERS COMPARED TO THE GREATER POPULATION. IT DOES NOT BACK UP MY GUT FEELING. THE RESEARCH RELIED – – TOTALLY ON HER LIST BUT DID NOT SEEK OUT THE TRUE NUMBER OF SOCCER PLAYERS WITH CANCER. TSUTSUMI THINGS ARE STILL MISSING IN THAT REPORT AND IN MY OPINION IT DOES NOT VALIDATE. A LARGER STUDY IS TAKING PLACE AND THE EPA AND CC HAVE DETERMINED – – THEY ARE WORKING TO SEE IF IT IS SAFE. THEY PLAN TO TEST SAMPLES AND ATHLETES TO SEE HOW PEOPLE INTERACT. AND GRIFFIN IS CRITICAL OF WASHINGTON CONCLUSIONS THAT IT IS SAFE. REGARDLESS THE STUDIES THAT CAME OUT, I DON’T THINK I WOULD EVER SAY THIS STUFF IS AWESOME, WE SHOULD HAVE EVERYONE PLAY ON IT.
