The peer-reviewed studies that Badges-Canning cited, part of the more than 500 studies now in print, were performed by reputable institutions and include data from Butler County. These studies can be easily found in the Compendium released by Concerned Health Professionals of New York.
If a food or medication was causing as much harm as fracking, it would be pulled from the shelf. How odd it is that as we learn more about the dangers of fracking and its associated infrastructure, some try to defend it through personal attacks.
The Butler Eagle can do a service to the people of Butler County by listening to its concerned citizens, the growing body of research and health experts and educating its readers about the reasons why fracking needs to end. We can create cleaner energy, safer jobs and a healthier environment by stopping dirty practices like fracking and moving to renewable sources.
