A recent analysis from SkyTruth has found that cancer-causing chemicals were used in about a third of fracking operations reported to FracFocus over a 21-month period in 2011 and 2012. The SkyTruth analysis reviewed more than 27,000 reports. The three most common carcinogens used in fracking were formaldehyde, naphthalene, and benzyl chloride.
