The association between oil and natural gas extraction processes and human reproduction

This review of the current literature makes clear: The impact of unconventional oil and gas activities may be greater than that of conventional activity, given that unconventional activities employ many of the same approaches and use dozens of known endocrine-disrupting chemicals in hydraulic fracturing. Abstract: This systematic review identified 45 original published research articles related …

Air toxics and birth defects: a Bayesian hierarchical approach to evaluate multiple pollutants and spina bifida

While there is evidence that maternal exposure to benzene is associated with spina bifida in offspring, to our knowledge there have been no assessments to evaluate the role of multiple hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) simultaneously on the risk of this relatively common birth defect. In the current study, we evaluated the association between maternal exposure …
