The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX) is bringing science to the people in a popular format — podcasts!

The new series Fracking and Health: Ask a Scientist answers your questions about the impacts of oil & gas development on human health.

TEDX will take your questions, identify scientists to answer them, and record the conversations in podcasts. Knowing we’re all way too busy they keep these conversations short. The first podcast is only 11 minutes long yet packed with science.

Episode #1: Is our food at risk from oil and gas wastewater repurposed for crop irrigation?

Hear what Dr. Seth Shonkoff, Executive Director of Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers for Healthy Energy, has to say. He discusses the many unknown factors surrounding the practice of irrigating with oilfield wastewater and describes a potential model for monitoring the water and protecting the public.

Listen to the podcast on Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher, or the TEDX website.

Get answers to your questions about health threats posed by unconventional oil and gas operations as TEDX interviews leading experts and records their answers in short podcasts.

TEDX invites you to submit a question for the podcast series Fracking and Health: Ask a Scientist.
