I’m thankful for one of the many Barnett Shale refugees who lives near me in Collin County who researches all the local farms to find us food that hasn’t been fracked.
Fracking Our Food Supply

I’m glad to see this new report and especially glad to see Jacki’s situation with her livestock highlighted.
But, we knew this already.
We already knew that natural gas emissions effect animals because in the Deborah Rogers health impacts case study, The senior veterinary toxicologist at Texas A&M wrote a letter of concern after looking at the air test results concluding that the compounds were problematic to the animal’s health and to the food chain because these compounds are known to be ingested or inhaled and magnify up the food chain in milk and meat.
And Canada knows it too.
The impact of emissions from oil and gas industries on animal health is a major concern in western Canada, among beef cattle producers, as their pastures and primary oil and gas facilities often overlap.
