US Authorities Say Microwave Energy “Likely Made US Diplomats Ill” in China and Cuba

The US National Academy of Sciences committee revealed that “directed” microwave radiation is the likely cause of illnesses among American diplomats in China and Cuba.

The US National Academy of Sciences committee revealed that “directed” microwave radiation is the likely cause of illnesses among American diplomats in China and Cuba.

The study commissioned by the US State Department and released on Sunday afternoon represents the latest attempt to fund an official cause for the illnesses that started to emerge in the year 2016 among American personnel in Cuban capital Havana.

The study found that “directed, pulsed radio-frequency energy appears to be the most plausible” explanation for symptoms that dizziness, cognitive difficulties and included intense head pressure. 

Study authors also pointed out this explanation was more likely than other previously considered causes such as tropical disease or psychological issues.

In the report, the 19-member committee said that it faced some challenges in trying to get to the bottom of the medical mystery. Among them, not everyone reported the same symptoms and the National Academy of Sciences research didn’t have access to all the previous studies on the illnesses.

“The committee found these cases quite concerning, in part because of the plausible role of directed, pulsed radio-frequency energy as a mechanism, but also because of the significant suffering and debility that has occurred in some of these individuals. We as a nation need to address these specific cases as well as the possibility of future cases with a concerted, coordinated, and comprehensive approach” committee chairman David Relman said.
