The Source: Fracking & Earthquakes | More Research Into Low Testosterone

In the first segment:

As the United States becomes a net exporter of oil for the first time since 1995, the Eagle Ford Shale deposit hums away with activity. The environmental costs have been becoming better documented and one correlation becomes stronger and stronger -- the link between certain hydraulic fracturing disposal methods and earthquakes.

Cliff Frolich, associate director of the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas at Austin, joins us to talk about his research into this area.

In the second segment:

More research on low testosterone shows the treatments are often time unnecessary and could even be unhealthy. The UT Health Science Center's Dr. Ian Thompson has studied this for years and joins us to talk more about the problems with low T.
