Dr. Sarah Buckley, safety concerns about prenatal sonography, published in 2005

Dr. Sarah Buckley, MD, created this website back in 2005. To summarize: studies estimate 99% of Australians, 70% of North American pregnancies involve prenatal ultrasound…why? It is very risky. Using it as a screening tool for abnormalities is exposing a majority of the population and this is dangerous.

I agree.. it’s a problem that is mostly propagated because of business success. Every individual mother is going to want baby pictures, making it a viral market. With the advent of social media pictures are self advertising treasures.

Yet, not enough research has been done to prove that they are safe yet. Research takes a lot of time, especially when there is no fountain of money just waiting.

There have been many side effects discovered in animal models, but ethics issues preclude human studies. So the safety assessments released have concluded safety based on lack of evidence.

The side effects discovered already urgently demand further attention… more research is required. Consider reblogging this message because more people need to know about these risks. Apparently the message didn’t get out in 2005.

Our future generation’s health is seriously called to question here.
