“Fracking and Our Food Supply” was a Feb/March feature in Mother Earth News. I have read Mother for years and have benefited greatly, as I believe will you. In an article by Shelly Stonebrook, you read that Fracking fluid contains 632 chemicals, 25% of which are linked to cancer or mutations and 75% affect sensory organs and respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Stonebrook writes, “As reported by The Nation, the Marcellus Shale formation in the northeast United States holds vast supplies of natural gas and is currently being fracked—yet it also spans an area which is home to three of the country’s highest concentrations of organic farms, which are in New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
