A recent Yale School of Public Health analysis identified 55 known, probable or possible human carcinogens determined to be potential water or air pollutants from the fracking process. The article shows ongoing research and analysis of about 1,300 fracking-related pollutants and contaminants present in the air and water to assess their carcinogenic role. The researchers constructed a list of air pollutants along with the chemical carcinogenicity through a review of the scientific literature. In particular, the researchers looked for evidence of increased risk of leukemia and lymphoma. Read more about it here.
