Autism possible cause. Fetal ultra sound use and autism.

AUTISM CAUSE...LET'S LOOK AT THIS

______________________________________________________________

The headlines are full of the scary statistics on the sharp increase in autism found in children.

Vaccinations were the first suspects. When exhaustive studies showed them to be an unlikely source it seemed that we had run out of suspects.

In my opinion, as a former scientist and health professional I am amazed that the co-incidental use of fetal ultra sonic on a routine basis over the past twenty years and the rise in autism has not been red-flagged. Does it make sense to bombard the developing neural systems with high frequency energy? I think not. If there is no clear medical benefit (and just determining the sex of the fetus is NOT one) then this practice should be reined in.

Some testing done on mice HAVE shown that brain connections are adversely effected by ultra sonic sound waves and as a result the medical community has merely advised that the mall centered testing shops should be avoided. That weak advise is NOT enough.

Let the public seriously question the ultra sound fetal scans and demand proper studies be launched to investigate the safety of such exposure...NOW!

Wow do you really think so. I think it makes sense because I just asked my mom if she gave my brother an ultrasound and she said yes. And sadly my brother is autistic.

But do you think they were born that way or that the problems would develop later on?

Fetal brain development is sensitive during the time frames that scans are used. Mice studies show that critical brain neural connections FAIL to form when the brain is subjected to the sound waves routinely used for humans. What bothers me is that this should never had been thought to be a good idea. Now it is enshrined in use. Many lawsuits would result if it turns out that my concerns are valid.

We should leave no orthodoxy of the medical establishment go unquestioned , we musdt save the children.

if ultra sound was the cause would we not all be autistic and there is medical reason for ultra sound it can tell you if your baby has heart problems is not growing it can tell you how far pregnant you are.

In some countries, routine pregnancy sonographic scans are performed to detect developmental defects before birth. This includes checking the status of the limbs and vital organs, as well as (sometimes) specific tests for abnormalities.
Some abnormalities detected by ultrasound can be addressed by medical treatment in utero or by perinatal care, though indications of other abnormalities can lead to a decision regarding abortion.

Perhaps the most common such test uses a measurement of the nuchal translucency thickness ("NT-test", or "Nuchal Scan").
Although 91% of fetuses affected by Down syndrome exhibit this defect, 5% of fetuses flagged by the test do not have Down syndrome.

Ultrasound may also detect fetal organ anomaly.
Usually scans for this type of detection are done around 18 to 20 weeks of gestational age.

Ultra sound scans on embryos is a rather recent thing. In fact the spike in autisic DX coincides with onset of its use.

There has been testing on animals to show that the neural development of the brain IS sensitive to this type of energy bombarding the brain at this early critical stage.

i understand your worry on the matter as i have an autistic child, but i did not have an ultra sound while i was pregnant with her.
she has a very low iq score but is very smart, she has had problems and her father has a rare form of epiliepsy which attacks the Purkinje cells in the brain called episodic ataxia type 1 its hereditary.

In humans, Purkinje cells are affected in a variety of diseases ranging from toxic exposure (alcohol, lithium), to autoimmune diseases and to genetic mutations (spinocerebellar ataxias, Unverricht-Lundborg disease, AUTISM) and neurodegenerative diseases that are not thought to have a known genetic basis (cerebellar type of multiple system atrophy, sporadic ataxias).

Just as there are many ways to cause a normal cell to become canerous there are many ways to damage a brain cell whih will result in some kind of defficit. The damage you describe is not classic Autism.
