Pregnant? Here's Something Else To Worry About

By Cassandra D

Because pregnant women never have anything to worry about, there's this:

In recent years we have heard about the increase in the number of children diagnosed with autism. One possible cause may have been thiomersal, a mercury-based preservative, in vaccines. This possibility generated a lot of controversy, as well as a reformulation of the vaccines. Early evidence shows that the rate of autism may be dropping after the change was made.

But is there something else that has increased in use in pregnant women? Something else that we could blame, based on limited and almost, but not quite, non-existent data?

Why not blame ultrasound?

You mean for once they're not blaming second-hand smoke?
