In 2009 Dr. Adam Law became concerned about the public health implications of unconventional natural gas extraction by the novel technologies of horizontal high volume hydraulic fracturing. He co-authored the first in the American Journal of Public Health alerting the medical community to potential adverse health effects entitled "The Rush to Drill For Natural Gas: A Public Health Cautionary Tale". He has co-authored further peer reviewed commentaries on this topic. He has given many talks to physicians, health care providers and the general public on this topic and he has also testified in Albany. He has taken a particular interest in the presence of endocrine disrupting chemicals in both the hydraulic fracturing fluid and also in the flow-back and produced waters from this process. He is a founding board member of Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Health Energy, a non-profit organization that brings transparency to the science-based implications of unconventional energy production by encouraging research, translating the available research for diverse audiences and educating the public, policy makers and health care providers.
