A new study attempting to blame natural gas development for negative health outcomes largely shows the opposite: that no linkage exists between fracking, adverse birth outcomes, and nearly all of the cancers studied.
The study, released by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, is the result of a four-year, multi-million-dollar taxpayer-funded venture commissioned to study fracking’s effects on childhood cancers, specifically if fracking caused increased incidence of a rare cancer, Ewing sarcoma.
The research found “no associations” with natural gas development:
“There were no associations between unconventional natural gas development activities and childhood leukemia, brain and bone cancers, including Ewing’s family of tumors,” the study says.
