Health risks of fracking: new study

A comprehensive health study published in October summarises research showing how fracking for gas and oil harms human health.

The report, written by Physicians for Social Responsibility and Concerned Health Professionals of New York, highlights health risks ranging from air and water pollution to a newly emerging problem:  leakage of methane and toxic gases from natural gas compressors, pipelines and other infrastructure.

This fully referenced, 150-page report brings together findings from scientific and medical journals, government and industry reports, and journalistic investigation.
