Cuban Diplomats Likely Hit by Microwave Weapons, New York Times Reports

September 4, 2018

Disturbing and sometimes incapacitating neurologic symptoms have been experienced by American and Canadian diplomats in Cuba since late 2015 and in American diplomats in China more recently this year. A New York Times front page article Sept 1, 2018, eerily describes what researchers and physicians have discovered to be the likely cause in this international story that reads like a medical spy novel. Initially it was felt that these strange and varied symptoms could be due to sonic attacks as people reported hearing clicking and high pitched sounds as well as feeling symptoms including headaches, nausea and dizziness, during the episodes, with long term effects of hearing loss, ringing in the ears and fatigue. Later the consensus opinion has pointed to focused beams of targeted man-made pulsed microwave radiation penetrating the walls of the homes and hotels of the 21 diplomats studied. The long term effects are consistent with known cellular oxidative damage from the radiofrequency radiation, as Dr. Beatrice Golomb highlights in her recent article to be published Sept 15, 2018.

Microwave Hearing

Allan Frey, a biologist at Cornell University was the first to discover and publish papers on “microwave hearing” while working on radar equipment at General Electric’s Advanced Electronics Center. In the 1970’s. This sonic hearing was found at levels below what are considered today safe exposure standards. Frey was later invited to the Soviet Union to discuss these effects to the Soviet Academy of Sciences. Not long after that our Defense Intelligence Agency warned that the soviets were developing a new class of psychophysical microwave weapons which could be beamed from afar and temporarily or permanently harm the nervous system. Our own Air Force scientists found they could beam comprehensible speech into a person’s brain, and were given a patent in 2002 for this technology destined for “psychological warfare”.

In late 2016, following a breakdown in Cuba and U.S. relations, U.S. diplomats and their families began experiencing unusual high pitched sounds in their hotel rooms and homes. This was accompanied by incapacitating headaches, fatigue, and insomnia. The medical team that examined them published a peer reviewed article describing their symptoms. They state, “retrospective case series, persistent cognitive, vestibular, and oculomotor dysfunction, as well as sleep impairment and headaches, were observed among US government personnel in Havana, Cuba, associated with reports of directional audible and/or sensory phenomena of unclear origin. These individuals appeared to have sustained injury to widespread brain networks without an associated history of head trauma.”

Mystery Illness: Microwave Illness

University of California San Diego Professor Dr. Beatrice Golomb, after extensively researching the health effects of microwave radiation has provided the most comprehensive explanation for the diplomat’s mystery illness. In an upcoming article in the October 2018 issue of Neural Computation, she lays out the case for neurological effects from radiofrequency radiation. She notes the variety of symptoms reported by diplomats is consistent with effects seen in those with microwave illness and radiofrequency exposure. According to an American Academy of Advancement of Sciences press release, Dr. Golomb stated “The specifics of the varied sounds that the diplomats reported hearing during the apparent inciting episodes, such as chirping, ringing and buzzing, cohere in detail with known properties of so-called ‘microwave hearing,’ also known as the Frey effect… And the symptoms that emerged fit, including the dominance of sleep problems, headaches and cognitive issues, as well as the distinctive prominence of auditory symptoms. Even objective findings reported on brain imaging fit with what has been reported for persons affected by RF/MW radiation.” She adds the toxic reaction is “tied to mitochondrial alteration and oxidative stress”.

NASA Has Reported Symptoms of Microwave Illness in Radar Workers

A similar complex of variable symptoms was reported decades ago in military personnel occupationally exposed to microwave radar signals. There is robust and expanding literature on the adverse health and environmental effects of microwave radiation we are commonly exposed to in our homes and with cell tower radiation. Manmade electromagnetic radiation affects all living organisms thus it is not surprising that it can also be used as a military weapon with higher power. Likely these were microwave frequencies in the 4G range and below 5G which uses shorter and less penetrating millimeter wave technology. Long term studies of low level microwave exposure indicate cumulative biologic harm.

5G technology is in the same high frequency group that the military has currently developed for non-lethal crowd control (active denial system). Rapid and unobstructed deployment of 5G is being pushed by the telecommunications industry in congress (S 3157) without premarket study of health or environmental effects or with provisions for post market study or precautions. What else will they deploy this for? More questions than answers remain.
