Questions about Prenatal Ultrasound and the Alarming Increase in Autism

When you see the ultrasound of a young boy still in the womb shielding his eyes with his barely developed hand and fingers, as tho in pain, it makes you wonder. Was the article, Questions about Prenatal Ultrasound and the Alarming Increase in Autism in the 2006 issue, of Midwifery Today, was really on to something about the alarming increase in Autism?

There does seem to be empirical correlation between the increase of Autism and the increase of the use of Ultrasound. Is it as simple as they are getting their developing brains scrambled?

Seems the answer today in 2019 is Yes:

FDA Warning

… Ultrasound waves can heat the tissues slightly. In some cases, it can also produce small pockets of gas in body fluids or tissues (cavitation). The long-term consequences of these effects are still unknown. Because of the particular concern for effects on the fetus, organizations such as the American Institute of Ultrasound have advocated prudent use of ultrasound imaging in pregnancy. Furthermore, the use of ultrasound solely for non-medical purposes such as obtaining fetal ‘keepsake’ videos has been discouraged. Keepsake images or videos are reasonable if they are produced during a medically-indicated exam, and if no additional exposure is required. … – https://www.fda.gov/radiation-emitting-products/medical-imaging/ultrasound-imaging#benefitsrisks
