HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Dr. Andrea Angelucci, Concerned Family Physician

“As a local Family Physician, I am endorsing Yes on Measure G. I am increasingly concerned about the growing evidence showing the deleterious public health effects of fracking. In communities near low and high pressure fracking wells there have been significant worsening asthma, premature births, neurological disease, kidney disease and mental symptoms. It is unacceptable and irresponsible to allow this in our community.” – Dr. Andrea Angelucci
