Toxic Turf

Artificial turf fields are common at college and professional sports stadiums and thousands of municipal and high school fields across the country. But we're learning that these giant plastic fields come with a heavy price tag nobody wants to pay. A team of reporters from Philadelphia is breaking this story wide open and everyone from the NFL to local soccer clubs is taking notice. This week on Green Street Patti and Doug talk about why processed foods are so addictive, and how telecoms are getting rid of copper land lines. Then investigative reporters Barbara Laker and David Gambacorta talk about their series in the Philadelphia Inquirer about artificial turf and members of the Phillies baseball team who all developed brain cancer after years of playing on the field.
