I haven't seen anything on here about what's been happening in the small town of LeRoy NY (situated halfway between Rochester and Buffalo) to about 16 high school girls. But I have been reading about it on the Rochester D&C that I get in my emails and hearing about it on the American morning news programs so I'm wondering what other people believe could be causing it.



Here's a link to one of the stories: http://terrimeredith.hubpages.com/hub/Th...



As you can see there are a plenty of answers ranging from a Chemical spill that happened in the 1970's to extreme stress to fracking. So any thoughts?

I wish we could all make an educated decision on fracking. Unfortunately when the companies get a waiver from having to report to the EPA what exactly they're pumping into the ground though, it could be anything and they don't have to tell us at all.

There's a lady in AB who can't drink her water anymore on her farm, but she can light it on fire thanks to fracking.

The fact that they won't tell you what toxic chemicals are being used should answer your question.
Here in the uk we are just in the middle of trying to stp fracking in our county. It is definitely a disaster waiting to happen. What with evidence on many more earth tremors, toxic waste found in drinking water, methane gas escaping into the air at an alarming rate which you can't see or smell but you can definitely feel the effects. We are horrified by the news and reports coming from Australia Canada and the USA.
We were led to believe that we had to become more responsible 'Green' for the sake of our future and our children yet we still mine more and more fossil fuels. Just doesn't make sense.
