Abbott said facilities performing ultrasounds for valid medical reasons calibrate their equipment to make sure the ultrasound does not heat tissue. But she said women should avoid getting ultrasounds just for fun."I would not recommend that a woman go for the keepsake photos," she said.

It's astounding how rational society spontaneously starts destroying itself.

The article says that getting the flu in a genetically predisposed child can increase the chance of the child getting autism?

So NOT getting your (flu) vaccine can cause autism? It seems like reality might just be trolling idiot anti-vaxxers at this point.

The woo-sters never left.

Theism
Scientology
Cleansing
Magical bracelets
Wicca
Astrology
Flat earth

Unsurprisingly, enablimg the woo-brigade is not solving the crises.

FTA: "...several studies have suggested that children exposed to ultrasound while in the womb are more likely to be left-handed - not anything undesirable, but an indication that the scans might affect the brain...."

That's rather sinister.

so. a slight increase in autism when deeper ultrasounds are done.
deeper ultrasounds are done on fat mothers. (I'm sorry, is there a more polite term?)
fat mothers are known to produce a greater percentage of autistic kids, ultrasounds or not.

not seeing any problem with ultrasounds here.

Hmmm... comparing the number of households with computers over the past 50 years to the number of children diagnosed with autism I can only come to one conclusion: computers cause autism.

Why do I have to say this in every autism thread?  Maybe one of these days it will f*cking sink in.

Autism is caused when a fairy or goblin sneaks into your house at night and replaces your perfect human baby with a changeling.  If more parents would have the foresight to nail iron horseshoes over all their doors and windows we could eliminate this problem overnight.

Actually, the fact that she is a whore, is what makes her somewhat useful.

Correlation does not always mean causation.   Perhaps autism causes home computing? if anything, we need more auties!
