Is it true that the left over waste water from hydraulic fracturing "fracking" jobs can cause cancer? I know the gas companies are very busy drilling in several parts of WV. I'm worried about it since i have kids and there are frack fluid injection wells located in WV.

To get the correct answer I would check with an Oncologist and or a Hematologist, those are cancer specialist and will be happy to help you with any question that you may have concerning this.

No, there is 99.51% water and sand. Then there are additives like stuff you put in your swimming pool, a chemical to used by dentists to sterilize medical instruments. Stuff thats in candy, juices, and bake goods. Nothing that isn't present in your everyday life.

Concerned! If possible, try and find a Hematologist or an Oncologist, sit down and discuss this with Him/Her, I'm sure they will give you some good advice, may not be the answers you're looking for, but they're experts in these fields of Blood disease and cancer types, hopefully they will help you find some answers. Good luck!

Nancy, I don't need any answers, you need to think before you talk/ type typical woman thing, as I said before doctor treat. The cancer, they might be able to tell you what caused it then again they may not. Science and research is what determines what causes cancer ,

If you don't need any answers, then why do you keep interfering?

"FRACKING" High pressure method that fractures shale to release gasses from under ground. Not "CRACKING"!

Fracking Cancer Lawsuits

Beckley, WV

A couple of my buddies worked for a Fracking company up north a few years ago. Both of them are in their early 30's and now have cancer. They are suing the gas company (can't mention name) because they were not informed of how dangerous Benzene, Methanol are other chemicals in fracking fluid really are.

Apparently, fracking fluid also contains high levels Radium and Barium (Radiation) which can cause cancer and other serious health problems as well. This seems to be the key reason so many small towns are suing their state and federal governments for fracking in their communities.

I was surprised to find that there are attorney's that specialize in sueing gas companies for giving their employees cancer:

Well I drove gas truck 15 years and gas has methanol in it and I know a lot of drivers that hauled gas and not many i knew had cancer, not many jobs out there that don't have some danger in it, but if we get rid of everything that causes cancer think of the people outta work!

Does coal not cause black lung?
Do the chemical plants not cause cancer?
Do the prostitutes not cause STD's?

Gee, get over it people. We all got to die of something.

Wow, you sound just like the idiots in Charleston who allow fracking in our state.

How about telling that to the little kids in Southern WV who now have cancer. Our state officials allow gas companies to dump this toxic waste in sedimont ponds in the middle of residential neighborhoods.

It is blantantly obvious to most people that the fracking industry can not be regulated. Our state officials are basically helping the gas companies POISON the citizens of West Virginia!!!

They need to realize fracking can not be regulated! They can not enforce the incredibly lax rules they put in place. Our governor needs to ban fracking like most states have!
