A review of scientific literature indicates that human development and reproduction is harmed. Harmed by endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Because they get released during oil and gas (UOG) operations. Especially fracking to release natural gas from underground rock.
University of Missouri and national colleagues found these activities release toxins. Especially as they call it “of a complex mixture”. A mixture of EDCs and that these chemicals should be researched. Especially as combined mixtures rather than studied independently.
Furthermore, more than 15 million Americans live within one mile of unconventional oil and gas (UOG) operations. UOG operations combining directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing; otherwise known as “fracking.” Fracking releases natural gas from underground rock.
Scientific studies reporting inconclusive on long-term effects on human development. So Susan C. Nagel and Christopher D. Kassotis researched on behalf of the University of Missouri conducted a review of research on this report. Also on the health effects associated with UOG operations.
They concluded these activities release toxins into the environment. In addition, what’s released contain endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). All the EDCs I know harm human development and reproduction.
In fact, non-renewable energy sources such as coal, oil, and natural gas are damaging the environment. That’s due to their constant use. Because they impact the environment negatively.
First of all there’s air and water pollution. Furthermore damaging get our public health. Let’s not forget wildlife damage and global warming emissions.
The authors reviewed more than 100 scientific, peer-reviewed publications. They also examined the studies thoroughly.
A peer-reviewed commentary from the authors concurred with the report. Yes folks, that research shows adverse health outcomes with natural gas fracking. As well as a lot of evidence-based research.
