A report highlights concerns related to chemicals with hormone disrupting properties, persistent chemicals that accumulate in organisms, the cocktail effect and the detrimental role of chemical exposures during development in the womb and in early life.
Vivienne Westwood said, “Mr. Cameron’s deliberate and systematic use of chemicals against innocent British women and children has led to this declaration of ‘War on Fracking’, with now more than 400 community groups rising up to fight fracking – the public will not take it lying down and will fight tooth and nail. Politicians are behaving like criminals and we are calling for regime change in Britain.”
Cameron accused foreign leaders such as Colonel Gaddafi of using chemicals on their own people as a justification for regime change, but he is doing precisely that here in Britain by forcing toxic, life threatening fracking chemicals on his own people.
A 2011 article in the journal, Human and Ecological Risk Assessment,  examined the potential health impacts of oil and gas drilling in relation to the chemicals used during drilling, fracking, processing, and delivery of natural gas. The paper compiled a list of 632 chemicals (an incomplete list due to trade secrecy exemptions) identified from drilling operations throughout the U.S. Their research found that 75% of the chemicals could affect the skin, eyes, and other sensory organs, and the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Approximately 40–50% could affect the brain/nervous system, immune and cardiovascular systems, and the kidneys; 37% could affect the endocrine system; and 25% could cause cancer and mutations.
