Abandoning years of official skepticism, Oklahoma’s government on Tuesday embraced a scientific consensus that earthquakes rocking the state are largely caused by the underground disposal of billions of barrels of wastewater from oil and gas wells.
The state’s energy and environment cabinet introduced a website detailing the evidence behind that conclusion Tuesday, including links to expert studies of Oklahoma’s quakes. The site includes an interactive map that plots not only earthquake locations, but also the sites of more than 3,000 active wastewater-injection wells.
The website coincided with a statement by the state-run Oklahoma Geological Survey that it “considers it very likely” that wastewater wells are causing the majority of the state’s earthquakes.  MORE

Were You Poisoned?

If you live in Ashtabula you well may have been.

The scene above looks pristine, inviting, safe.  But is it?

The poisons seeping into your life from a multitude of sources do not have to be obvious.  But in a growing number of locations they are present.

Your neighborhood can look pristine, inviting, clean, but still harbor enough polluting presence to destroy the health of those you love. 

This site is your tool for the unadulterated truth on risks you may well be struggling with as health problems, never imagining the cause.

You do not have to be paranoid to be worried about the impact on yourself and your family from the tens of thousands of sources of toxic waste which have gone so far toward destroying our lives.

Action begins with a realistic understanding of the risks you face and what you can expect.  We can help you get the information you need so you can take the next steps.  That may be a law suit.  It may be using the alternatives for health which many believe aid in recovery.

We'll provide information on those issues, too.  But first you need the information and that starts with reading the material we provide and filling out our Tox Profile Form.  It's your life.  Think about what you can expect if you do nothing. These poisons could be making millions of people sick. You could also be a victim.

For solutions and remedies to some of the chemicals that could be making you sick, see our Toxics Page with regional maps and case studies for the worst pollutants.
