Pressure-treated Lumber still leaching arsenic - on playgrounds, decks, etc.!

Great story by Melanie Alnwick on FOX5 DC about "Poison Wood" aired Nov. 13th on TV - it is or nearly is an "unacceptable risk to children" on playgrounds, backyard decks and swingsets, at your home or daycare centers. Read, learn, respond.

What is the solution?

Metal? <--what about tetanus?

Plastic? <--More expensive to repair if broken

What may even be scarier is homes are built with these same components even pool decks, and other play type areas around the home. I once read that most accidents happen at home. Can't quote the source but I believe it to be the same theory as kids toys at home or in the park. They are just a dangerous at home as in the park. It is defiantly something t think about.
