Adverse Reproductive and Developmental Health Outcomes Following Prenatal Exposure to a Hydraulic Fracturing Chemical Mixture in Mice

white lab mice

The authors of this study have previously shown that 23 of 24 commonly used hydraulic fracturing chemicals can activate or inhibit the estrogen, androgen, glucocorticoid, progesterone, and/or thyroid receptors in a human endometrial cancer cell reporter gene assay and that mixtures can behave synergistically, additively, or antagonistically on these receptors. Their study results suggest potential …

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 …

Unconventional Natural Gas Development and Birth Outcomes in Pennsylvania, USA

Prenatal residential exposure to unconventional natural gas development activity in Pennsylvania was associated with two pregnancy outcomes (preterm birth and physician-recorded high-risk pregnancy identified from the problem list), adding to evidence that unconventional natural gas development may impact health. Bibliography: Casey JA, Savitz DA, Rasmussen SG, Ogburn EL, Pollak J, Mercer DG, Schwartz BS Unconventional …

Developmental and reproductive effects of chemicals associated with unconventional oil and natural gas operations

In this work, the scientific literature providing evidence that adult and early life exposure to chemicals associated with unconventional oil and gas operations can result in adverse reproductive health and developmental effects in humans is reviewed. Bibliography: Developmental and reproductive effects of chemicals associated with unconventional oil and natural gas operations Ellen Webb, Sheila Bushkin-Bedient, …

Shale Gas Development and Infant Health: Evidence from Pennsylvania

This research exploits the introduction of shale gas wells in Pennsylvania in response to growing controversy around the drilling method of hydraulic fracturing. Using detailed location data on maternal address and GIS coordinates of gas wells, this study examines singleton births to mothers residing close to a shale gas well from 2003-2010 in Pennsylvania. The …
