Jennifer Beals and actress Laura Dern spoke out Wednesday 27th in favor of legislation by state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, for a roughly $6 million analysis of the fields that use ground-up automobile tires, or crumb rubber, and have been identified as containing arsenic, lead, mercury and other toxic materials.

The bill’s goal is to provide a comprehensive study of potential links between frequent use of the synthetic fields and adverse health conditions, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other forms of cancer. Hill cited the example of soccer goalies who cause a spray of rubber pellets every time they hit the ground.
