Results Of Fracking Study On Human Health

The Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project is one of the first studies of its kind on the effect fracking has on human health. 

Researchers carried out the study over a year and a half and what they found challenges the industry position that fracking is harmless to people.

They uncovered seven cases of skin rashes, four of eye irritation, 13 of breathing problems along with three of headaches and dizziness that were plausibly connected to fracking.
