In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Medical Doctor and Senior Director of Mediine and Public Health, Dr. Gil Ross, joins Research Fellow Isaac Orr to discuss some of the latest alarmist claims against the process of hydraulic fracturing.
Does fracking cause premature births? That’s what the newspaper headlines are claiming, but Dr. Ross and Isaac Orr take a closer look at a study conducted by Johns Hopkins University, published in Epidemiology, exposing the fatal flaws in this study.
Dr. Ross explains why the methodology used to conduct the study is faulty, rendering its conclusions meaningless. Additionally, Dr. Ross and Orr discuss ways in which listeners can detect other faulty studies in the future.
