HEI Energy Research Committee

Special Report 1

This report reviews the epidemiology research that assesses whether exposure to unconventional oil and natural gas development (UOGD) might lead to adverse health effects. The HEI-Energy Research Committee (the “Committee”) conducted this review as part of a larger effort to understand the state of the science about potential exposure and health effects from UOGD. The Committee will use results from this review and a companion review of literature on potential human exposures to inform HEI-Energy’s planning for research to better understand potential exposures associated with UOGD.
