EHP researchers have used a new approach to study the relationship between exposure to shale gas development and respiratory symptoms, finding that wind direction may be a primary indicator of those health issues. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Part A on August 27, 2019. To request complimentary access to the full research paper, please contact EHP at 724-260-5504.
