Using real science and his own experience of living in and treating patients in an area with active shale drilling, Them decimates the weak arguments made by Zucker in his "study".
Jim Willis from Marcellus Drilling News joined David Madeira to talk about a shocking story in the Scranton Times Tribune about the PA Dept of Health supposedly hiding injuries related to Natural Gas.
