Toxic park update

The Miami Herald has a long front page story on our toxic parks. It basically is saying that the parks may not be as dangerous as we think. The scientists feel that it's very hard to come into contact with the Arsenic and other substances found in the dirt, although they did while looking for it so it can't be that hard.

They feel that each child has a different level of exposure depending on the time they have spent in the park, did they come into contact with the dirt, did they eat it?

Here's the complete story.

To summarize it the City of Miami has been screwing the citizens for ever and perpetuity.

Until they test people to see who has been effected no one can make this un collaborated hypothesis. The City needs to pay for testing people by a third party that won't potentially smudge the facts. I heard St. Stephens is refusing to pay for Peacock now that this issue has been brought to light!

I find your comments extremely irresponsible. How can you deduct from the Herald's Sunday article that "It basically is saying that the parks may not be as dangerous as we think"? Did we read the same article? Miami-Dade County should have a lock on the gates of Blanche Park until it is deemed safe. At least they should have a warning sign. The County should begin testing children and dogs immediately for levels of exposure.
