YALE STUDY LINKS PRENATAL ULTRASOUND TO BRAIN DAMAGE
Sheesh! It is common for midwives and doctors to suggest at least four ultrasounds during pregnancy. NOT a good idea!
"During fetal development, neurons of the brain migrate to their correct positions. In a study of 335 mice, the researchers found that exposing pregnant mice to ultrasound waves at frequencies of 6.7 MHz for 30 minutes or more interfered with this normal migration in their fetuses. This interference could potentially result in brain abnormalities such as mental retardation and seizures."
