Lose Weight Without Trying …live by a fracking gas well….R U SHALE SKINNY?



I’ve been meaning to blog about overly thin people living near these Urban Gas Wells. Today one of my tennants mentioned to me that she lost about 25 pounds, but was not trying.

During chemo and radiation, my husband agreed to pose for the above silhouette picture to show how thin he was…fast forward a year later and he is still not able to gain his weight back…I’m losing weight too and not trying. So we both walk around with our clothes hanging on us….lovely.

We live less than 1/2 mile from gas wells in Arlington TX by the ATT Stadium.


Here is a video at an Arlington City Council meeting where two minutes into the video, this man who lives near fracking claims several deaths and his unexplained 30 lb weight loss in a six month period.

Recently, someone mentioned how “bone thin” this woman is who lives near fracking in the Eagleford Shale. That made me visualize the “shale-fraile” concept.

A couple of months ago I met a couple of gals fighting this fracking thing at a lawyers meeting, and I remember thinking how overly thin they are….like me. One lady from Azle TX just had sugery for aneurysms in her stomach. The other lady is an Arlington resident who also lives close to a padsite.  She has a son who seems to have had the opposite shale weight (gain) reaction. When I asked her today about the timing of her young son’s weight gain she wrote me …

I CERTAINLY believe that the endocrine disruptors in association with fracking are to blame for his illness and his very unusual weight issue. He doesn’t eat more than “normal” kids, he doesn’t drink sodas (only bottled water), he’s not a sweets freak…….with his condition, we have had VERY strict diet modifications. He has been thru every food allergy test known to man, some where very painful….they all revealed NOTHING!! So they said it was most likely environmentally related and to look around and see what had ‘changed’ in our environment. Bruder was the change. They began fracking Bruder about 6 months before he started showing signs of illness. He was misdiagnosed at least 5 times before I insisted on an endoscopy/colonoscopy. His esophagus looked like he had drank gasoline. Swollen, open sores, ulcers in every section….his colon was the same way. He was so swollen that he would choke on food the size of a pea. He was in extreme. horrific pain 90% of the day for about 4 years before we got it under control. He would even cry in his sleep and wake up crying. And yes, my husband, daughter and I are thin. I have asked many DRs ‘why’ he has such a different body type. They have no answers. Researching his illness is what lead me to fracking and my HATE for the industry. I ABSOLUTELY BLAME THEM!!!!!!! With extreme lifestyle changes, heavy medication (4x the adult dose of Prevacid everyday to eliminate all stomach acids/4 hits of a steroid inhaler to reduce swelling/countless bottles of Tums and Mylanta), complete elimination diet..no wheat, soy, milk, egg, fish, shell fish, peanuts, tree nuts, no GMO, non pesticide foods, non-antibiotic/hormone tainted meat…he slowly began to get better. Shortly after his first days of being pain free, I was diagnosed. I’m sure the stress of dealing with his illness coupled with exposure to benzene by the industry is the cause of my Leukemia. I absolutely know it.”

This young boy goes to JB Little Elementary….someone who teaches there contacted me last week about a cancer cluster there….four teachers have breast cancer. This school is near Martin Highschool where another lady has contacted me about suspect cancer clusters there.


Here is yet another Arlington resident that spends alot of time in my neighborhood with the boyscouts…He is battling cancer and the chemo isn’t helping with his overly thin weight issue here in the Barnett Shale Hell.


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.
