The Texas Department of State Health Services is planning to conduct an investigation into health concerns related to natural gas production in the town of DISH. I've previously written about the alarming results of an air quality study conducted in the town.
Health symptoms reported in the tiny town of DISH, according to a recent news report, include frequent sinus infections, nosebleeds, headaches, persistent coughs, irritated eyes, debilitating migraines, enlarged spleens, fatigue, gastric problems, abnormal mammograms and EEGs.
As far as I know this will be the first time a state, or any government agency, has undertaken a study like this. We appreciate this move forward and are really looking forward to seeing the results.
