There have been some news reports about a potential association between Artificial Turf and Cancer - lymphoma and leukemia in particular. I put down a significant quantity of Rubber Mulch last summer (60 bags) in my garden (made of the same recycled rubber tires as Artificial Turf). In February, I was diagnosed with CLL.
Has anyone else with a CLL diagnosis had any significant contact with Rubber Mulch and/or Artificial Turf? CLL cases in the US are up about 25% since 2000 and I'm wondering if there is a relationship between the wide-spread use of Artificial Turf and/or Rubber Mulch and this increase.
