might be interesting to some. Search Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride and you'll find a lot of info.
The link with autism and vaxs is fuzzy. There is much debate about it even amongst those who think vaxs are linked to autism. The article I read discussed it and it was very interesting.
I've seen that video series, it's fascinating. What I'd love to read more on and have never seen is a discussion on the genetic component where babies are adopted at birth. I think we tend to blend the idea that something is genetic with the fact that we learn our eating habits from our families. I certainly think someone can inherit a predisposition towards having a certain kind of gut, but then again, if so much of what is inherited is an effect of epigenetics rather than straightforward gene inheritance...
But yeah. I personally believe that the expression of autism spectrum disorders is a result of what's going on in the gut.
All that to say, I think prenatal diet and mom's own gut flora, plus things that affect baby's gut sterility such as vaginal vs. c/s birth, bf or ff, whether or not baby is in the hospital nursery, antibiotics in labor and childhood... I think all that is a major, maybe THE contributor to an individuals ability to handle environmental contaminants and vaccines.

And when humans get u/s done they aren't usually done for several hours at a time at high levels repeatedly over the entire course of gestation.
No, however, many moms get 30 seconds of Doppler at every visit. Because dopplers don't pulse the way visual ultrasound machines do, they're very concentrated doses of exposure and actually worse than getting elective ultrasounds if I understand correctly. Visual u/s pulse at a rate of 1/200 of a second. Dopplers are constant. This is the math I was shown in my Bradley class, someone jump in if I have it wrong here:
It follows then that 1 second of doppler provides the same length of exposure as 200 seconds of visual u/s. If you use a doppler for 30 sec that's equal to a 6000 sec ultrasound or the same as you'd get from a 1h40m scan. And people do that at every visit.
