CD-ROM - Accidental Brainwave Entrainment?

This is more of a question for open debate.
Audio CDs are encoded at a rate of 44,000 samples per second, a multiple of 440 Htz, or the musical note A. This is also an underlying mathematical multiple involved in nature's design of the human head.

Could post hypnotic suggestion result from such frequency usage?

Is this a factor in the increase of mental health problems since the early '80?

Does the 44,000 rate, entrain the brain, keeping it in a suggestable state?

Is this one of the sources of migraines?

Do we need to change the sampling rates for safety reasons?

Have any studies been carried out on any of these questions?

Papers on my desk by friday... :)
