Wow, in Pennsylvania, doctors can access information about fracking chemicals their patients might have been exposed to, but as reported in the Atlantic, a

new bill requires those health professionals to sign a confidentiality agreement stating that they will not disclose that information to anyone else — not even the person they’re trying to treat.

Eventually, however, the truth will out. At some point an insider is bound to put this stuff out there. An environmental Snowden? The fracking and chemicals industry needs to get out ahead of this one. Better yet, they need to move to benign chemicals for fracking. It can be done.
