Add this to the body of evidence suggesting that the unconventional oil and gas extraction technique known as fracking poses risks to public health. In a study published Wednesday, researchers at the Yale School of Public Health looked at over 1,000 chemicals in hydraulic-fracturing fluids or wastewater, and found that over 150 of them were linked to potential reproductive or developmental harm. Those chemicals include arsenic, benzene, lead, formaldehyde, and Mercury. The study, published in the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental and Epidemiology, also underscores the many unknowns regarding the adverse effects of fracking.
