The great Jim West has done it! ...His meticulous analysis... has turned the establishment on its head. If I were the king of Pulitzers, I would give him a dozen. He is what truly deep reporting is all about. NoMoreFakeNews.com

This is important work. Attention must be brought upon the subject. Ultrasound is more than taking pretty pictures of babies. You have brought together the field... on the subject, from physics to biology and medicine. Your writing should raise awareness in the layperson, that ultrasound is a "buyers beware" market. That before the glacial pace of our government moves to take action it is their responsibility to become informed and take adequate decisions.

Your book is wonderful. You found the human studies... terrifying! I wish I were wrong.

Great job. Your book is doing a valuable service to the childbearing public... You just cannot expose a fetus to this much energy without doing harm. For example, see Newnham (1993).
Zvonko Hočevar, LLT Dr, Ljubljana University Medical Centre
Congratulations for your book and your courage in presenting this topic to public. Heartfelt thanks! I did my Doctorate of Science, finding 'no evidence based medicine' supporting 'safety' of ultrasound in IVF (in vitro fertilization) procedures.
From the Author
This unprecedented breakthrough enables tremendous extensions of prior ultrasound criticism. Technical jargon and math are simplified and minimized. Comprehensive commentary is throughout. Authoritative guidance is provided by Ruo Feng, PhD, the ALARA principles, and the NIH Consensus Statement. This book demonstrates virtually no lower damage threshold for ultrasound exposure. Guidelines often advise against ultrasound sessions unless there is an overriding medical need, considering risk/benefit with a medical professional.

The results: Diagnostic ultrasound is found to be extremely damaging to the fetus. Even very low power levels and exposure times cause cell death and cell damage.
Even before reading this book, I was convinced that prenatal ultrasound is leading to the boom in autism and other developmental disorders in children (ADD, ADHD, etc). After reading this book, any doubt I had about the damaging effects of ultrasound are gone.
Jim West does a wonderful job of not only presenting the research, but providing a framework for understanding what is going on. How could the medical doctors and community go on giving more and more frequent, more and more powerful ultrasound exams when this evidence exists? Conflict of interest of the experts in this field explains a lot. The quotes of leading US experts in ultrasound imaging (all MDs) all state diagnostic ultrasound has not been proven harmful (false statement), they worrying indicate more research is needed, giving themselves a more "out."
If you or someone you love is pregnant, think before submitting to prenatal ultrasounds. Do yourself a favor: pay the few dollars for this book, and protect your unborn loved one. It is an uphill fight, but you can refuse, or at least limit, prenatal ultrasounds.
This book is yet another damning indictment of allopathic medicine ruled by short term money gain, and covering up known hazards to the health of people.
You owe it to yourself, your family, and unborn child to do as much research as you can whenever a Dr. wants to administer or prescribe something to you, or in my case my pregnant wife.
The "standard of care" in modern medicine isn't concerned with the outcome of your health anymore; it stands for increased profits.
The study Jim West transcribed from China is empirical evidence, contrary to the long held belief that: "because it hasn't been proven dangerous, it must be safe".
I almost sent a copy of this book to my wife's first OBGYN after he condescendingly told me there was no risk with DUS. This was prior to reading this book; but at the time with my wife 7 weeks pregnant, I felt very uneasy with a medical procedure for something that was not a condition. Needless to say, we left without doing a DUS and never returned.
Take responsibility for your health, do research, try not to be a victom to conformation bias nor accept authority for truth.
BTW: my son is healthy and I assume, not affected by the exposure. However... How can I be sure?? Mr West, perhaps your next book could address the science that may address the question? No easy task I'm sure, especially when no one wants to produce data that goes counter to, or threatens, the economic viability of existing medical and Big Pharma stranglehold on pseudo-scientific popular health consensus.
Jim West dug up this impossible to find evidence to make it obviously clear that we should
not be haphazardly using video ultrasounds when less invasive technologies can be used.
