San Antonio, TX, recently became the largest American city to ban the use of sealants made with coal tar, which the U.S. government says contains carcinogens. Should more municipalities consider a ban?


Answers Votes
Yes. Coal tar sealants are unnecessarily exposing workers and the public to cancer risks; there are other formulations that will do just as good a job. 50%
Government bans are a step too far, but it would be nice to see the industry move away from this particular product. 27%
No. Coal tar sealants are the best on the market, and there's no conclusive proof they're dangerous. 23%
