Study: Fracking linked to increased hospitalizations for skin, genital and urinary issues in Pennsylvania

This article discusses a new study that shows that fracking is linked to increased hospitalizations for skin, genital and urinary issues in Pennsylvania. Rashes, urinary tract infections, and kidney stones requiring hospital stays are more common in areas with more drilling, according to a new study.

Fracking may put Pennsylvania communities at greater risk for skin, genital, and urinary diseases, according to new research.

The study, which will be published in the March issue of the journal Public Health, looked at hospital records in Pennsylvania’s 67 counties from 2003-2014.
