Why Can't they Play Soccer on Organic Fields?  Why are the Soccer Players Not Dead from Cancer? 

Activist Caught in Another Lie about Cosmetic Pesticide Ban Benefits.

Sarah Newton [Anti Pesticide Activist] lost her best friend.

My friend lived on a GOLF COURSE, he practiced soccer on it at night, and he walked across it each day to school. He lived and breathed soccer, playing on heavily sprayed fields from the age of seven right on through until the end of university. Spraying was a common practice, but now we know better.  His EXPOSURE level to pesticides was COLOSSAL. 

Lunatic Meg Sears has all kinds of stories about the Dangers of Artificial Turf, she prefers all weather turfs (gravel) her grand daughter plays on in BC.

Meg Sears [Anti Pesticide Activist] lost her son Eric:

In conclusion I just want to introduce you to somebody. I'm not only a scientist, I'm also a mother.  Science will never tell us what really happened, but this is somebody who possibly fell on the wrong

side of your risk-benefit analysis. This is a picture of my son. He died just over a year ago, of a malignancy that was possibly caused…. When I was pregnant with him, they constructed a golf course just down the road from me. They used a vast quantity of pesticides when they were doing that.

Mae Burrows tells people at a presentation that 1 in 3 child soccer players will die of cancer.    

Players plan lawsuit over women's World Cup surface

(Reuters) – Lawyers representing 40 top women's soccer players challenged FIFA and the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) on Friday by saying they would file a lawsuit against them over staging next year's women's World Cup in Canada on artificial turf.

Players from Germany, Brazil, Spain and the United States are among those claiming that the use of artificial turf instead of grass for the June 5-July 6 event is discriminatory, given the men's World Cup is always played on grass.

Their lawyers had given FIFA a Friday deadline to open discussion or face an imminent lawsuit in a Canadian court.

Since such no discussion had begun, the players’ attorneys said they would be focused on finalizing and filing the necessary legal papers.

"A lawsuit is a last resort but one that unfortunately appears necessary and will be initiated in coming days," attorney Hampton Dellinger, the Washington based law firm representing the players, said in a statement.

"As the already drafted legal papers demonstrate, the players and their attorneys are prepared to put before a judge what we believe is a clear — and very unfortunate — case of gender discrimination."

Abby Wambach of the United States and Germany's Nadine Angerer, FIFA players of the year for 2012 and 2013, respectively, are among those who signed the original letter.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup for men in Brazil was played on grass and there are no plans to shift future men's tournaments to artificial turf.

"The discriminatory proposal of FIFA and the Canadian Soccer Association to stage the 2015 women’s World Cup on artificial turf, coupled with their refusal to discuss ways to fix the mistake, have left the players with no choice," said Dellinger.

"It is now time to ask the courts to stop FIFA and CSA from forcing elite athletes to compete under game-changing, dangerous and demeaning conditions. …

"World class games cannot take place on second class surfaces."

The World Cup will be staged in six cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Moncton, where stadiums with artificial turf predominate.
