Background: The rapid rise in natural gas extraction and development has increased contamination of air and water near drilling-dense regions across the country. Many of the chemicals used and associated with natural gas development extraction and development have been associated with acute and chronic health problems in children and women, including respiratory, neurological, reproductive, and developmental impacts. Researchers are studying the relationship between the chemicals associated with natural gas extraction and development and short and long-term health effects.
