Ultrasounds: a “little” risk is too much

“Recent studies in Europe have indicated that ultrasound is damaging to the developing fetus. It is both disturbing and amazing that even after studies show there is a possibility of danger, we still have doctors saying: ‘Oh go ahead. It may be ok. Don’t quit having them.’ Is this like: ‘Oh, a little brain damage is fine. Don’t worry’? Obviously THOSE doctors were babies of mothers who HAD ultrasounds-further proof for the new studies!”

I couldn’t agree with you more, R.O. It’s nothing short of criminal, in my opinion. For more information on this topic, see the article on page 5 of this issue.
