Paula S: Pennsylvania Resident
"My name is Paula S. I suffered after chemical exposure on December 8, 2011. I’m calling for a halt to hydraulic slick-water fracturing."
• Natural Gas processing plant on route to work
• Air Contamination: H2S - Hydrogen Sulfide
• Human Health Impact:
"This past week I went to my doctor. I talked to her about my ordeal. She tested me for presence of toxins. I tested positive for chemical exposure."
"She put me on a supplement to help rid my body of the toxins and also increased my adrenal support. Overall, my system has taken a hit. In the meantime, I try to work my way back to where I was and avoid exposure."
"After monthly visits to my doctor my system is getting better. I am not sure when I will need to use the respirator."
"I hear that a processing plant is going in a couple of miles due west of my home. I wonder if I will be able to stay here. But where do I go? My family is here. My job is here."
