Environmental Aspects of Natural Gas—Current State of Science, Knowledge Gaps and Opportunities for Future Research
This report discusses the current state of knowledge on environmental issues associated with the entire natural gas value chain; knowledge gaps; and potential research projects on various topics such as emissions and air quality, water quality and availability, seismic issues, ecological impacts, and human health impacts.
The EPRI-supported Aerosol Research and Inhalation Epidemiology Study, conducted in five metropolitan areas in the United States, is one of the largest studies ever conducted to assess the acute health effects of air pollution.
This report discusses the strengths and limitations of a September 2017 paper in Cancer Causes & Control entitled “Residential Magnetic Fields Exposure and Childhood Leukemia: A Population-Based Case-Control Study in California.”
EPRI Comments on a Study of Childhood Leukemia, Central Nervous System Cancers and Distance from Overhead Power Lines
U.S. researchers recently published a study that assesses the association between populations living near overhead power lines and childhood leukemia (“Childhood Leukemia and Distance to Power Lines in California: A Population-Based Control Study,” British Journal of Cancer). This EPRI report provides an overview of the study and discusses its strengths and limitations.
