U.S. diplomats that have been stationed in China and Cuba have suffered from mysterious disorders that medical experts are now calling the Havana Syndrome. The National Academy of Sciences released a report confirming that American intelligence officials have suffered from this, likely due to sustained exposure to microwave radiation. Meaning someone could be aiming nefarious radiation at U.S. overseas workers on purpose!
As many as 40 employees of the State Department experienced headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, and impaired vision. The government does not confirm that these were a result of deliberate exposure from an enemy but they do not rule it out either, which is terrifying.
The report gives four possible reasons for these symptoms: infection, chemicals, psychological factors, and microwave energy, which it calls “directed pulsed RF energy.” It says that the latter is the “most plausible.”
