Fracking and Health Awareness Project


Welcome to the Fracking and Health Awareness Project. The aim of this website is to gather in one place a wide range of information on the health impacts of shale gas industrial development, including fracking. This website is under construction, with lots of information still to be posted, so keep checking back.We will also have a sign up feature soon, so that you can be automatically contacted when new information is posted.
