Beatrice Alexandra Golomb, MD, PhD, is a Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. She has a background in physics; engineering (Jet Propulsion Laboratory); biology (PhD); medicine (MD, Chief Medical Resident, >20 years clinical experience); and research methods (RAND/UCLA Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar). Her laboratory focuses on exposures and conditions tied to oxidation/antioxidation and cell energetics.

Dr. Golomb was the first to seriously document evidence for pulsed radiofrequency/microwave radiation as the cause of the “mystery illness” in U.S. Diplomats in Cuba and China, and the first to publish a peer reviewed article on this. She has presented this work to the U.S. (and Cuban) National Academy of Sciences.



Diplomats’ Mystery Illness: Pulsed Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation

A number of U.S. and Canadian diplomats to Cuba and to China developed a "mystery illness" in which strange noises were perceived, followed by development of an array of symptoms. These noises had six distinctive features that, it will be shown, are together consistent only with "radiofrequency hearing" (aka the "Frey effect"): these sounds reportedly differed from diplomat to diplomat; encompassed chirping, clicking, grinding, hissing, and clanging; were heard only with low ambient noise; had laserlike” localization in space; seemed to follow diplomats as they moved; and did not lessen when ears were covered. The symptoms cohere not just qualitatively but quantitatively, in ordering and in fractions of those affected, with symptoms associated with Nonionizing Radiation Toxicity syndrome (NIRT). Sleep problems, headache and cognitive problems topped the list; tinnitus, dizziness, irritability and anxiety were also prominent. Objectively measurable signs reported, including nosebleeds, hearing loss, and brain imaging studies that resemble traumatic brain injury, also fit with reports for NIRT. Finally, there is precedent for exposure of U.S. diplomats to microwave radiation in a foreign embassy setting, via the documented microwaving of U.S. diplomats at the Moscow Embassy from 1953 to the latter 1980's (or later). Evidence thus fits pulsed radiofrequency radiation (RFR). No other hypothesis fits the evidence. Diplomats' mystery illness fits with and reinforces evidence supporting RFR as a cause of symptoms, with implications extending to the general population.
