Declassified State Department report finds crickets and mass psychology to blame for Havana syndrome – Yahoo News


Crickets and mass psychology may be to blame for symptoms of the mysterious Havana syndrome that has intermittently plagued foreign dignitaries since 2016, according to a recently declassified report.

A declassified 2018 State Department study by the JASON Group, an independent organization of scientists that has advised the government for decades, ruled out radio or microwave weapons as the source of the noise often accompanying symptoms of nausea, vertigo, and headaches.

While the sounds cause real suffering in the individuals, they “are not, by themselves, the cause of reported long-term harm,” said the report obtained by BuzzFeed News Thursday.

“No plausible single source of energy (neither radio/microwaves or sonic) can produce both the recorded audio/video signals, and the reported medical effects,” the report concluded. “We believe the sounds are mechanical or biological in origin, rather than electronic. The most likely source is the Indies short-tailed cricket.”

The report also proposed “psychogenic illness” as the cause of the symptoms.

The JASON report contradicts a December 2020 study published by the National Academy of Sciences and commissioned by the State Department that concluded “directed, pulsed radio frequency energy appears to be the most plausible mechanism in explaining these cases.”
