Livestock falling ill in fracking regions
In the midst of the domestic energy boom, livestock on farms near oil- and gas-drilling operations nationwide have been quietly falling sick and dying. While scientists have yet to isolate cause and effect, many suspect chemicals used in drilling and hydrofracking (or “fracking”) operations are poisoning animals through the air, water or soil.

Earlier this year, Michelle Bamberger, an Ithaca, N.Y., veterinarian, and Robert Oswald, a professor of molecular medicine at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine, published the first and only peer-reviewed report to suggest a link between fracking and illness in food animals.

The authors compiled 24 case studies of farmers in six shale-gas states whose livestock experienced neurological, reproductive and acute gastrointestinal problems after being exposed — either accidentally or incidentally — to fracking chemicals in the water or air. The article, published in “New Solutions: A Journal of Environmental and Occupational Health,” describes how scores of animals died over the course of several years. Fracking industry proponents challenged the study, since the authors neither identified the farmers nor ran controlled experiments to determine how specific fracking compounds might affect livestock.

Interestingly enough I just saw a story maybe a week or two ago that they changed the fracking fluid to an EDIBLE non-toxic mix.

I think I saw it on FOX.
One of the people actually ate some of it too.

This is just hippie propaganda bullshit. The funny part is that they are unknowingly bein funded by big oil. Foreign oil companies do not want the us to be energy independent.

what sense is it to be energy independent if we poison our home in the process?

Do you guys even possess the ability to think logically or is this another symptom of the poisoning process?

Life is about more than money!
