Fracking, the Environment, and Health – American Journal of Nursing, June 2013

“Melissa Owen became concerned when her 10-year-old son developed such severe nosebleeds that she used tampons to stop the bleeding. Soon after, a blistering rash appeared on his skin, and his sister began having similar nosebleeds. The Colorado family’s physician attributed these symptoms to air pollution caused by the use of hydraulic fracturing-“fracking”-to extract natural gas in their community. He recommended they move.” ~ Ruth McDermott-Levy, PhD, RN,; Nina Kaktins, MSN, RN, and Barbara Sattler, DrPH, RN. “Fracking, the Environment, and Health” – page 45, American Journal of Nursing, June 2013.
