Subject: Medical expert shale health video / weather a huge factor in airshed exposure

Attn: leaders this email will be posted on the internet for others to see that I’ve been forewarning you that we need more health studies and a halt to all future drilling near people.
You think there is a lull in dry gas drilling, but if all the LNG export contracts are signed, they will be back.
“David Brown is the Public Health Toxicologist and Director of Public Health Toxicology for Environment and Human Health, Inc. He is the past Chief of Environmental Epidemiology and Occupational Health in Connecticut and was previously Associate Professor of Toxicology at Northeastern College of Pharmacy and Allied Health. He also served as Deputy Director of the Public Health Practice Group of Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) at the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Brown graduated from Cornell University in Biochemistry, received his MS from the University of California In Environmental Health, and his ScD from Harvard School of Public Health in Toxicology.”
This is an hour long video and I listed some things I thought were relevant….
Weather factor in airshed exposure 17 min into video(my home invaded 1/30/13)
Cardiovascular issues 19:30 minutes
BTEX, CO, and Biocides and Acrylamides at 23 min into video
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (my first hand experience)25 min
Inhalation of silica dust and TB 26 min (first hand experience)
Radium IS present in Barnett Shale* and disolves in water
VOC’s impacts
Unknown health impacts on low/moderate dose,long/moderate term exposures
Particulate matter/diesel 39 min into video….inhalation & other pathways
Florides used to produce changes in the shale 43 min
Formaldehydes (not tested in municipal water)
Barium (we test every nine years in our municipal water)
Radium-natural but toxic when brought up from the earth air/water/soil pathways
Methylene Chloride decomposes/toxic & metabolized as CO/reproductive effects
52 min nosebleeds, stomach issues
Citizens on bloodpressure meds interactions in the shale
Have affected persons remove themselves from exposures
*“ The (Barnett Shale) analysis confirmed the presence of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation in the soil and water that was tested. The gamma-emitting radionuclides identified exceeded regulatory guideline values by more than 800 percent. According to the paper’s authors, the active pit was overflowing into a neighboring stream.”
Here are the health conditions reported by multiple sources…
#Breathing Problems
#Intense headaches, confusion
#Precancerous lesions
#Blood dyscrasias, nose bleeds/enlarged spleens
#Dermal-Rashes and chemical burns
#Sleep and stress disorders

Subject: At least acknowledge the recent EDC report by WHO on drilling so close to humans


In 2012, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and WHO presented a document entitled State of the Science of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals – 2012.

“This document provides the global status of scientific knowledge on exposure to and effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

It explains, in the first chapter, what endocrine disruption is all about, and then it discusses in detail, in 12 sections in the second chapter, endocrine disrupting effects in humans and wildlife.

The work is based on the fact that endocrine systems are very similar across vertebrate species and that endocrine effects manifest themselves independently of species. The effects are endocrine system related and not necessarily species dependent. Effects shown in wildlife or experimental animals may also occur in humans if they are exposed to EDCs at a vulnerable time and at concentrations leading to alterations of endocrine regulation. Of special concern are effects on early development of both humans and wildlife, as these effects are often irreversible and may not become evident until later in life. The third and final chapter of this document discusses exposure of humans and wildlife to EDCs and potential EDCs”.

Subject: Fracking Health Study in Pennsylvania

I would appreciate it if our health officials in Arlington would make a comment on the risks of citizens near high impact industrial activies around the 60 padsites near homes and schools.

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
