Quoting justanothamotha:" I never said they shouldn't be concerned over what they eat - but that is a strawman argument. One doesn't ... [snip!] ... as of yet we can't say "why" - I think ANYTHING we are doing differently than we did then ought ot be under heavy scrutiny."
Saying that a wound and a fetus is different "to a degree" because they are similar in how they are formed is erroneous. There are a million things that develop from tissue, but that doesn't make them anywhere near the same thing. That is simply comparing apples to oranges.
No, I'm not asserting that diagnostic medical tests are equal to ultrasound for fun, you assumed that. Did I say there was zero risk? No, I said there are WAY more things to be concerned about to the average American.
My insurance didn't pay for me to have an ultrasound, so I had to go to a "ultrasound for fun" place. Also, those places are required to have your doctor's written approval, and then sends the ultrasound that they do TO your doctor so they can check for abnormalities. So it is
medical, in a sense.
Do you really
think that fetal death coincides with the rise of ultrasound? You really don't think it could be from anything else? It's not possible it is from hormones and pesticides in the food or the chemicals in the drugs that were COMPLETELY different from 25 years ago? You don't think it has anything to do with vaccinations? No, your right, an ultrasound, something that happens at least once-twice in almost every normal pregnancy, compared to the food and drugs we take every day that not ONLY lines the pockets of our government and government programs but is also ingested multiple times a day by the "normal" American person, couldn't possible be a more likely culprit of fetal death. Or how about the fact that we are the only country that treats birth like a sickness and shoots up pregnant women with terrible smurf like pitocin, epidurals, and a script for pain killers right after? Or that we have the highest c-section rate in the world? And you think it is more possible that fetal death is more likely to be caused by.... ultrasounds? Show me research, show me statistics, show me proof that that is more dangerous than anything I have just mentioned.
And by the way, this was a discussion between adults. There was really no
need for you to attack me for my education, which you also
assumed was to be a tech. I am actually
going to radiology school for nuclear medicine, AFTER I already went to school for nursing. Big congratulations to your Radiologist professor uncle whose education and experience somehow makes you more knowledgeable in Radiology than me.
