Gwenn, was on her way to the doctor and mentioned her intention with Dad. He simply said, "you don't need one." When she questioned him, he asked her if she knew what ultrasounds were used for in his line of work. Of course, she didn't, and he told her companies used ultrasound in huge doses to break down corrison in jet engines and steel containers, among many other things. He asked her to imagine what even a small dose could do to a small, forming brain. At higher power levels, ultrasound is useful of changing the chemical properties of substances.
She didn't take his advice and had an ultra-sound. Her third child was born with a distinctly different and withdrawn personality. Since I have an autistic grandson and his parents have tried all types of things: gluten free diet, epsom salt baths, deleting different things from his diet, etc, and nothing has worked, I'm still curious why Autism is on the rise and no one seems to have an explanation. I don't believe the condition is even prevalent in countries where they do not have ultrasonic technologies.
The moral of this story is that my dad forecast that in 30 years (which it has been), there would be tons of children with something wrong with them, and no one would know how it happened or why? You may find women who had ultra sounds and perfectly healthy children, but can anyone tell me they know of a woman with an Autistic child who DIDN'T have an ultrasound...or in some cases, many of them?
My sisters and I are all in our sixties. None of us remember children who had the symptoms of autism and ultra sounds weren't done during my child bearing years. I thought this was very interesting and I wanted to share. It never hurts to make people think...and when you figure how often ultrasounds are done these days, could there be a coorelation?
Let me know your thoughts.
Here's the link to a video you can watch about how ultrasound cleans metal: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlDCNE0ISgA
