I agree. Those of you with kids should take special notice of this article. As the article states:

"In fact, the Department of Health's finding of less cancer in this group of youth athletes than would be expected -- given background rates in Washington -- goes to show yet again how physical activity is among the strongest strategies for preventing cancer, and that, if anything, synthetic turf fields aid this fight against cancer," the statement said.

It sure was good of the truth to bring it to everyone's attention that playing sports on artificial turf is a great way to reduce cancer rates.
