About This Project

One of the greatest joys for those who want to start a family is to be pregnant and have a healthy baby. Based on our previous research, this natural course may be threatened by hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” for gas and oil. We seek funds to scrutinize the suspected link between fracking and hormone disrupting activity in drinking water. Rigorous scientific studies are essential to inform regulators about the safety of this process.
