    • For fracking gas or oil from wellss, large amounts of sand, water and chemicals are pumped into the earth at very high pressure owing to which the solid rocks beneath the upper layer of earth are broken down and the oil or gas flows out. Some of the chemicals used during this process are extremely hazardous to human and environmental health and are known to pollute both water we drink and the air we breathe.
