Health impacts of fracking

Center for Health, Environment & Justice is a national, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that provides organizing and technical assistance to grassroots community groups in the environmental health and justice movement. CHEJ was founded in 1981 by Lois Gibbs, who helped win the relocation of over 900 families from their neighborhood which was contaminated by chemicals leaking from the Love Canal landfill in Niagara Falls, NY. Through this effort, Gibbs and her neighbors woke up the nation to recognize the link between people’s exposures to dangerous chemicals in their community and serious public health impacts.

A multi-page presentation by CHEJ on the health impacts of fracking can be found at:  http://chej.org/wp-content/uploads/Presentation-Health-Impacts-Fracking-PA.pdf
