Artificial football pitches cancer warning http://dailym.ai/1SwmxA9
Don't like the sound of that but it must depend on the components used in the manufacturing process and, eg, whether rubber granules are used. Also, has to be properly clinically investigated of course.
There's hardly a substance/foodstuff/activity known to man that hasn't been the subject of a 'potentially causes cancer' story in the Daily Mail.
Best to disregard what this tawdry bigoted rag has to say about anything
Ha ha that is brilliant
It's in the 'Hate Mail's polar opposite as well.
FIFA bosses urged to investigate claims 3G football pitches are a cancer risk http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/fifa-bosses-urged-investigate-health-7284586#ICID=sharebar_twitter
A rather out of date list of things the Daily Mail says cause cancer: http://www.anorak.co.uk/288298/keyposts/the-daily-mails-list-of-things-that-give-you-cancer-from-a-to-z.html/
They've also previously run conflicting does/doesn't cause cancer stories on the same day in two different editions of the paper.
Don't think Andrew needs to panic.
Let's also not forget their campaign against MMR in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence which led to thousands of children not being vaccinated against diseases that can kill. Some people might say this makes everyone who works there a murderer and anyone who buys it an accomplice.
Some people might say that.
is it the American culture of blame? Looking to get shed loads of cash because their son/ daughter failed to make the big time?
Perhaps it's me being a cynical Brit!!!
Dr Congo. The MMR vaccine was a case of who shouted loudest. The disgraced Andrew Wakefield was a fraud, this was common knowledge in the NHS, it was scaremongering and rumour driven by the red tops. (My wife is a Nurse with 32 years experience, our boys now 23 & 25 had the MMR after we researched the evidence) The rubber balls from recycled tyres seems very scary. If you think of the carcinogenic gasses given off when the big fires at tyre dump occurs. There are so many impurities in plastics and rubbers produced from around the globe. More research is needed but I can see the potential for problems. Just rub your hand over the side wall of an old tyre. What is that? Would you want to ingest it?
The Daily Mail once issued 'The Absbestos Cookbook' in 10 parts, claiming it to be 'the way to a better you'.
The recepies were a collaboration between Bernie Winters (part owner of the Berni Inn chain of restaurants) and Laing Construction and featured recepies for pets that were tested on Winters' unsuspecting dog / sidekick Schnorbitz, who later sued the Mail for his crippling veterinary bills.
The Mail is the root of all evil. I think they will send you some evil root if you collect only 5 tokens from next week Monday to Friday.
Well, that settles that then, @outofplace.
Progress continues towards stricter legislation on the levels of residual carcinogenic substances in the granular infill material used in artificial pitches: https://echa.europa.eu/-/echa-s-scientific-committees-support-restricting-pahs-in-granules-and-mulches
The final paragraph in this press release refers to an additional concern that has been raised regarding artificial pitches, linked to possible harmful effects to the environment. The infill material meets the legal definition of an "intentionally-added microplastic" and, consequently, its use in artificial pitches will be subject to forthcoming legislation on microplastics unless specific exemptions are provided.
