Study: More evidence links earthquakes to energy waste wells

Study: More evidence links earthquakes to energy waste wells

Technology
Scientists say they have more evidence that an increase in earthquakes on the Colorado-New Mexico border since 2001 has been caused by wells that inject wastewater from oil and gas production back underground, similar to human-caused quakes in Oklahoma and other states. A paper published last week by researchers at the University of Colorado concluded that the wastewater caused a big enough increase in underground pressure to make rock formations slip along fault lines. "You find that the pressure changes at a given depth are enough to trigger earthquakes," said Jenny Nakai, the paper's lead author and a doctoral student at the university.

New study links C-sections with hysterectomy complications later in life

Health
A new study found that women who undergo a cesarean section delivery may have an increased risk of complications when undergoing a hysterectomy later in life. Women who have undergone one cesarean delivery had a 31.1 percent increased risk of re-operation after a hysterectomy later in life, when compared with women having only vaginal deliveries, according to the study, published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Surgery journal. Meanwhile, women who have had two or more cesarean deliveries may have an even higher risk of a re-operation following a hysterectomy, researchers found.
