Fracking chemicals must be disclosed
There is much concern in the U.S. about energy sources and our dependence on foreign oil. Hydraulic fracturing or fracking of shale may be a partial solution to this issue of energy independence. That's the good side of fracking. There's also a potentially bad side, and that is the contribution of exposure to chemicals associated with fracking to the decline of human health in communities, particularly rural communities.
