Hey. I just kind of do my own thing. I'm pretty forward and honest, and prefer to keep things real. On forums I really don't give a crap so don't take anything personal I say (unless you are a weak-bellied baby man). Good times.

Prenatal Ultrasound -> Autism?

Posted by Gramiscus - January 24th, 2013


Long story short: excessive prenatal ultrasounds could be contributing to the worldwide increase in autism and developmental disorders. There are tons of scientific papers that discuss side effects of ultrasound that can cause brain damage. You can read more about it on the websites below.

The reason why doctors believe ultrasound is safe is because there is no evidence that it hurts people in epidemiology. However, it is impossible to perform valid epidemiological studies. Practitioners do not collect detailed information about scan sessions. So, no dose data is available to researchers.

I believe in evidence based care and First Do No Harm.

Nice work on the thread (I was tired and screwed up my contribution)... there's a medical thread in clubs and crews, but I'm sure it's gone by the wayside. We older members gotta speak what we believe, or else the kids here will go their course, not asking questions.

well that sucks
