Featured Research Reviews
At EHP, we know that it can be tough to get your hands on peer-reviewed literature and even tougher to understand the scientific jargon within it. We also know that information is power. Featured Research Reviews offer summaries of recent and relevant studies, clarifying the health impact of shale gas development.
