Lung Cancer & NYC KItchens: Why Increased Radon in Natural Gas Could Be a Public Health Disaster

If New York State approves hydrofracking for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation, that local gas would most likely find its way into the homes of New Yorkers for use in cooking and heating. What New Yorkers won’t be told is that the Marcellus is highly radioactive, and gas produced there is loaded with radon, a gaseous form of radiation and a leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Learn more about this potential public health disaster when Chefs for the Marcellus founder Heather Carlucci and others speak at a forum on May 14. (Chefs for the Marcellus is one of the many sponsors.)
