  • Fracking: Harm on the Farm

    Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.

  • Fracking and Water Contamination

    Hydraulic fracturing combines water with an array of chemicals, some of which are carcinogenic, endocrine-disruptive, or otherwise toxic. The result is the contamination of huge quantities of water, with potential immediate and long-term threats to health. Read more »

  • Fracking and Air Pollution

    A growing body of scientific evidence links the fracking boom with serious risks to air quality and health. Read more »

  • Most Vulnerable Populations

    Certain populations are more impacted by toxic chemical exposures than others. And they need greater protection from dangerous chemicals Read more »

  • Chemical Reform and CICA

    The health of all Americans is the primary objective of chemical policy reform. That reform effort is now underway – and it has serious implications for doctors, nurses, and other health care providers. Read more »

  • Video: Health Impacts Reported by Families Residing near Hydro Fracking Operations

    Third in PSR's series of Fracking webinars, featuring speaker Poune Saberi, MD, MPH. Read more »

  • Environmental Threats to Brain Development

    Scientists have long known that low levels of exposure to toxic chemicals and other environmental factors affecting the mother, lead to modest impacts on brain development in a fetus and a growing child. However, recent studies reveal so many children are affected that the harm to our society is anything but modest. Read more »

  • Video: Potential Health Impacts of Unconventional Gas Extraction

    Jerome Paulson, MD, presents an expert analysis of the process of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") for oil and natural gas and its potential for negative impacts on human health. Read more »

  • Video: The Science of Shale Gas

    Anthony Ingraffea, PhD, a professor of engineering at Cornell University, discusses the heavily industrialized and spatially intense nature of hydraulic fracturing and why, where and how it leaks methane -- a greenhouse gas 72 times more powerful 1than carbon dioxide. Read more »

  • Moving beyond risk in order to better protect our health

    How can we protect our most vulnerable from toxic chemicals? This month’s contributors to the Environmental Health Policy Institute advocate for strengthening prevention by improving the way we assess health hazards from chemicals. Read more »
