'Ground War'

Andrew Nisker’s dad was a health nut. And a golfer.

After his dad died—of a rare type of blood cancer called mantle cell lymphoma—Nisker, a documentary filmmaker went looking for answers.

As reported in Salon, Nisker found a 2011 annual report from his father’s former golf course, listing the pesticides used on the golf course.

The tally, for just that one year, came to 16 products—including 2,4-D, a component of the Vietnam War-era Agent Orange herbicide, and chlorpyrifos, known to affect the nervous system.

If you or your kids play outside, you’ll want to watch this film when it’s available. Or sign up to host a screening in your town.
