We help Butadiene injury and cancer victims file claims with experienced Personal Injury Lawyers!
Soccer players and other athletes are being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after playing on fields made from the artificial turf. More than 40 young soccer players have been diagnosed with cancer in U. S. with a majority being goal keepers.
Young Soccer goalies come home from playing on artificial turf fields and remove toxic “rubber crumbs” from their abrasions , cuts, hair, mouths, nose from their clothing and gear.
Children's body systems have not yet matured and their brains, lungs, immune systems and reproductive organs are continuing to develop and are more susceptible to Butadiene exposure than those of adults.
What is “Crumb Rubber?”
Crumb Rubber, ( styrene butadiene rubber), was developed in 2000 as an alternative less popular artificial turf called AstroTurf or ChemGrass. Tiny black crumbs made from old tires, are poured between synthetic blades of grass, giving the turf more bounce to reduce risk of injury on the field. Crumb rubber infill is also used in children’s playgrounds across the country. The EPA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission are looking at a possible link between “crumb rubber” artificial turf fields and the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
