Neurological symptoms allegedly experienced by US diplomats in China and Cuba are reportedly caused by directed microwave energy. A new report by the National Academies of Sciences (NAS), obtained by The Hill, confirmed earlier assertions that radio frequency plays a role on the reported illnesses. “The committee felt that many of the distinctive and acute signs, symptoms and observations reported by [government] employees are consistent with the effects of directed, pulsed radio frequency (RF) energy,” the report said.
“Studies published in the open literature more than a half-century ago and over the subsequent decades by Western and Soviet sources provide circumstantial support for this possible mechanism.”
appears to be the most plausible mechanism in explaining these cases among those that the committee considered.
The committee cannot rule out other possible mechanisms and considers it likely that a multiplicity of factors explains some cases and the differences between others,” the report read. China and Cuba have not taken any stance towards the latest report.
