Prenatal Ultrasound is Anything But “Perfectly Safe”

Since the 1970s, pregnant women have been repeatedly told that ultrasound is “just sound waves” and, therefore, “perfectly safe” during pregnancy.

They have been encouraged by care providers to undergo multiple ultrasound scans and Doppler fetal heart monitoring (also ultrasound based) during pregnancy, and sometimes they and their babies are exposed to ultrasonic monitors for hours during hospital birth.

But ultrasound is not just sound waves. In fact, it is nonionizing radiation, and many hundreds of studies have shown that this type of radiation is harmful. Humans and other life forms are in danger from exposure to non-ionizing technologies, and this is especially true for children and developing babies in the womb.

We can find ultrasound listed on the FDA’s website in a section entitled Radiation-Emitting Products. There we are told that “ultrasound… is based on nonionizing radiation, so it does not have the same risks as X-rays…” However, study after study has confirmed that ultrasound produces very similar biological damage to the damage caused by x-rays. One study found that a single exposure to ultrasound produced DNA damage similar to that caused by 250 chest x-rays.

DNA-damaged fetal cells can quickly replicate and multiply during cell division, leaving babies susceptible to mutated development, and/or cancerous tumors, leukemia, and other life-threatening illnesses over time. Ultrasound damage is insidious since the beam can penetrate deep into the body without showing any signs of damage on the skin. Children who are exposed to ultrasound may look normal, but the internal contents of their bodies have been cooked, causing damage to blood, brain, bones, reproductive organs, heart, and more. Prenatal ultrasound is being linked to intrauterine growth retardation, low birth weight, fetal abnormalities, fetal demise, miscarriage, premature birth, infertility, heart defects, autism, childhood hearing loss, speech problems, leukemia, and more.

The medical establishment has known, since at least 1955, that ultrasound interferes with fertility. It has been shown to have deleterious effects on the menstrual cycle, induce premature ovulation, cause problems with embryo implantation, and trigger structural alterations in ovarian and testicular tissue which may be contributing to the rising rates of genital defects since the 1970s when ultrasound was mainstreamed in obstetrics.

Ultrasound has been documented to permanently halt sperm production and, in fact, the medical establishment is currently using ultrasound as a form of male contraception. Ultrasonic irradiation is being used to induce “noninvasive” vasectomies since it can literally “cook” the vas deferens of adult males and thereby block the tubes that deliver sperm to the penis. Additionally, two 15minute blasts of ultrasound to the adult male scrotum ensures a minimum of six months infertility, and infertility can be permanent. If infertility is temporary, the quality of sperm is in question, since ultrasound can cause genetic defects in sperm and contribute to the myriad “de novo” mutations we are seeing in children today, including children with autism.

Moreover, if ultrasound can stop sperm production and cook the reproductive organs of adult men, what do we suppose is happening to our developing babies when they direct that beam at the genitals to discover the sex of the child?

Infertility is skyrocketing in the U.S., with men now producing 60% less sperm than they did in 1975 (when ultrasound was introduced). Female fertility is also in steep decline and the U.S. is currently experiencing its lowest birth rate ever recorded since 1909 when the government first began tracking fertility.

Radiation exposure in utero is obviously playing a huge role in this terminal decline. Exposure to cell phones, cordless phones, baby monitors, WiFi routers, etc., is also contributing to an existential fertility crisis, and British physicist, Barrie Trower,has predicted that within 50 years, we are going to bear witness to a radiationinduced genetic disaster that will leave only one in eight children healthy.

Entire genetic bloodlines are at risk because of our radiation addiction, and we are not the only species that is being harmed. It is imperative that we acknowledge the danger of these radiation-emitting technologies and put an end to this madness NOW. Not only do we need to return to sane technology that will not endanger our lives, but we also need to say NO to harmful medical interventions like ultrasonography so that we can protect ourselves and our children from further harm.
