From our friends at Yale University:
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT FAKE FIELDS:
All fields, natural or fake, carry risks.
However,artificial turf is implicated in far more serious health and safety risks than natural fields.
These risks include exposure to carcinogens, serious infections, and skin burns, as well as higher injury rates. of knees and ankles..
Natural grass fields can be cultivated to be organic and pesticide-free, with longer, stronger roots to take heavy play, Natural grass poses no additional health risks besides those undertaken in any athletic activity.
