Importance: A mystery illness striking U.S. and Canadian diplomats to Cuba (and now China) “has confounded the FBI, the State Department and US intelligence agencies” (Lederman, Weissenstein, & Lee, 2017). Sonic explanations for the so-called health attacks have long dominated media reports, propelled by peculiar sounds heard and auditory symptoms experienced. Sonic mediation was justly rejected by experts. We assessed whether pulsed radiofrequency/microwave radiation (RF/MW) exposure can… 

Havana syndrome: a scoping review of the existing literature

In conclusion, Havana syndrome is a nonspecific neurological illness with an unidentified causative factor(s), an acute phase of auditory-vestibular symptoms and a chronic phase of nonspespecific neurobehavioral symptoms.

Physical Therapy Treatment of a Person Exposed to Directed Energy: A Case Report.

A 43-year-old male with suspected directed energy exposure developed progressively worsening headaches, dizziness, auditory/vestibular symptoms, balance problems, difficulty sleeping, and cognitive/emotional complaints while assigned by the Department of State to Guangzhou, China.

Self-referencing authorships behind the ICNIRP 2020 radiation protection guidelines

Abstract In March 2020, ICNIRP (the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) published a set of guidelines for limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz).

On the Feasibility of Acoustic Attacks Using Commodity Smart Devices

The feasibility of cyber-attacks that could make smart consumer devices produce possibly imperceptible sound at both high and low frequencies, at the maximum available volume setting, potentially turning them into acoustic cyber-weapons is investigated.

Establishment of injury models in studies of biological effects induced by microwave radiation

The microwave exposure conditions, subjects used to establish injury models, the methods used for the assessment of the injuries, and the indicators implemented to evaluate the success of injury model establishment in studies on biological effects induced by microwave radiation are reviewed.

Electrosensitivity is the symptomatic sensitivity to Electric or Magnetic Fields of any frequency, including RadioFrequency (RF or Microwave) transmissions, which is becoming common due to the increasing environmental pressure on human biology.

Reports of inner-ear damage deepen diplomat controversy.

In the latest proposal, Michael Hoffer, an otolaryngologist at the University of Miami in Florida, and his colleagues describe a unique neurological and cognitive disorder in two dozen people evacuated from the Havana embassy.

Radiofrequency (RF) Sickness in the Lilienfeld Study: An Effect of Modulated Microwaves?

A review of statistically significant health effects noted in the Lilienfeld Study provided evidence that the disregarded health conditions match the cluster attributed to the radiofrequency sickness syndrome, thus establishing a possible correlation between health effects and chronic exposure to low-intensity, modulated microwave radiation.

Questions about the existence of EHS go back to the days of the Cold War and differing concepts related to the effects of RF radiation, and important factors were peak power density, carrier frequency, and modulation.

Sixty minutes of close exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by a mobile phone had an immediate effect on HTL assessed by pure-tone audiogram and inner ear (assessed by DPOAE) in young human subjects.

Neurological Manifestations Among US Government Personnel Reporting Directional Audible and Sensory Phenomena in Havana, Cuba

In this preliminary report of a 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.
