An interagency report is calling for more investigation into the link between breast cancer and environmental factors.

Federal report recommends more research in breast cancer

This is good news for Denton residents because a new United Way report showed that Denton dies of cancer not heart disease like the rest of the country.

I wonder if the cancer rates in Denton have anything to do with the 7,812+ pieces of Barnett Shale pollution emitters that are emitting carcinogens into the air.

Was woken early this morning by that dreaded hissing sound. Someone was at the compressor doing something, I got a cell phone video of white smoke coming from one side of it. My throat started burning (as it does 99% of the time, whether I’m inside or out).

Two of my neighbors have fled their homes, one has hers for sale, the others left in their RV for a break from this hell.

Just another lovely day in Gasland.

Interesting note by United Way. Doesn’t Julie ‘steam’ Wilson head up the Texas chapter?
