Study Shows Fracking Is Bad for Babies

…proximity to fracking increased the likelihood of low birth weight by more than half, from about 5.6 percent to more than 9 percent. The chances of a low Apgar score, a summary measure of the health of newborn children, roughly doubled, to more than 5 percent.
Whitenhouse writes that more study is needed. And what that means is that some families will participate in this grand fracking experiment without informed consent. Their babies will be guinea pigs in this experiment with public health.
Whitenhouse concludes with common sense.
Still, evidence that our demand for cheap energy could be doing irreversible harm to children should be reason for serious pause.
Either stop fracking or sign up now to enter your unborn child in a grand fracking experiment that could cause irreversible harm.
