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… Expand
On the Feasibility of Acoustic Attacks Using Commodity Smart Devices
TLDR
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. Expand
Establishment of injury models in studies of biological effects induced by microwave radiation
TLDR
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.

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

TLDR
EHS persons were suffering not only from their symptoms, but also from economical and social problems, and had to take measures to protect themselves from EMF, such as moving to low EMF areas, or buyingLow EMF electric appliances. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand
