And here we have been so focused on linking the toxins in vaccines to the rise in autism rates. But it does make sense that anything – chemcial, electrical, nutritional or toxic is going to affect the neural development of a fetal or an infant brain. This is not rocket science – this is common sense. According to Wikipedia:
Ultrasound is an oscillating sound pressure wave with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasound is thus not separated from ‘normal’ (audible) sound based on differences in physical properties, only the fact that humans cannot hear it. Although this limit varies from person to person, it is approximately 20 kilohertz (20,000 hertz) in healthy, young adults. Ultrasound devices operate with frequencies from 20 kHz up to several gigahertz.
An oscillating sound pressure wave – can certainly be tranduced through the placenta sending waves right into the fetal brain.In fact, if my science recall is accurate water – in the placenta – increases the speed of sound waves. Can anyone cite or comment on this for me?
If you read further down through the Wikipedia article – it states plain and clear – “Some people find high-frequency sounds and ultrasound extremely painful. This is often associated with autism and sensory defensiveness but can also be caused by hyperacusis.” It is impossible to determine is some fetuses may be experiencing extreme pain in-utero. As impossible as an infant’s pain level after getting immunized. What happened to the concept of protecting the innocent?
Although I tried to find a reference to how many gigahertz are in a pregnancy ultrasound device – I could only find a slight reference to 4 with upwards of 15. However, I did find this reference to ultrasound exams taking 30 minutes. How long that device is on a woman’s abdomen certainly has impact on fetal health.
Ultrasound Causes Brain Damage in Fetuses: Study
Ultrasound has become routine during pregnancy over the last 3 decades. It is assumed to be safe, though safety was never investigated. Research is now finally being done, and the results are dismal, demonstrating clear and permanent brain damage, as shown in this study. Nearly all babies have been damaged to varying degrees, resulting in abnormal neurology becoming the norm.

That delightful ultrasound look at a fetus months before birth is a huge thrill—but that’s the only benefit. That thrill comes at a risk, one that it’s hard to imagine any parent would be willing to take if the facts were presented. Ultrasound causes brain damage and can even kill the fetus. This is not a supposition. It’s been clearly documented, and exactly what it does to the developing brain is understood.
Dr. Jennifer Margulis points out in her brilliant new book, The Business of Baby:
Manuel Casanova M.D., a neurologist who holds an endowed chair at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, contends that Rakic’s mice research helps confirm a disturbing hypothesis that he and his colleagues have been testing for the last three years: that ultrasound exposure is an environmental factor directly contributing to the exponential rise in autism.
Dr. Pasko Rakic is the lead researcher for the study documenting that ultrasound damages mouse brains. It shows that the process of brain development is disturbed in mice. Though it’s easy to suggest that this is “only” a study on mice, so doesn’t prove anything about humans, that’s not true. The method of development in mouse brains is exactly the same in all mammals. Therefore, if ultrasound has an adverse effect on mouse brains, then it must also have the same effect on human brains.
The Brain’s Cellular Organization
Brain cells are not arranged in a random manner. The brain’s gray matter controls muscles, sensory perception, emotion, and memory. Gray matter cells form columns, which can function as a unit. The cells are also arranged in rows that are parallel to the surface of the brain. You can think of the brain’s cells as being arranged in a grid, like a graph. Each cell forms part of both a column and a row, though the row is actually curved to match the surface of the brain.
If developing cells do not end up where they should, behavioral problems and epilepsy can arise from the misarrangement. It’s obvious that anything capable of causing such misarrangement can produce disabilities. Therefore, Dr. Rakic’s study is particularly disturbing.
