Studies clearly show that living near active oil or gas wells has adverse effects on health. This is particularly the case for people living near sites where hydraulic fracturing – a technique for obtaining oil and gas from shale rock – takes place. Commonly known as ‘fracking’, the process involves drilling into the earth and directing a high-pressure mixture of water, sand, and chemicals at rock.

While governments commonly claim that fracking poses little or no risk to public health, the truth is the exact opposite. Studies have demonstrated clear links between fracking and cancer, heart attack, adverse birth outcomes, and numerous other negative health effects.
