That is an excellent article ( Facts on Fracking for Health Care Providers ) noted above. We should be aware that there is at least one other important “contaminant”, not identified above, which is CO2 that is released into the air in large quantities from gas treatment plants as part of the acid gas stream. Since CO2 is heavier than air, and since the quantities in these releases are so large, the air in residential areas can have the oxygen reduced to dangerously low levels so as to cause health issues, including low blood oxygen, heart palputations, asfixication, and even death. Also the TCEQ in Texas does not concern itself with the levels of oxygen & CO2 in our air.
That is so true about the CO2. I remember when Aruba Petroleum put the Thermal Oxidizer out at the Ruggiero’s place. The CO2 meter went off all the time and everybody got sick. A health chicken died within 2 hours and a dog was unresponsive.

Thank you for posting, these are great and I think they would make excellent informative inserts to SEJ’s magazine.
I think the inserts would lend balance to EnergyFromShale.org’s latest ad, at least until EnergyFromShale.org runs the conclusion to the ad where:
a) the fisherman sticks it out until his inhaler is totally depleted, but comes up empty handed; or
b) the catch of the day features a curved spine, two tails, three eyes and a legion of lesions; or
c) the fisherman falls into the “stream” and disintegrates.
Should be a barn burner.
