Infrasound are sound waves that are felt by the body rather than heard. For example, have you ever observed how very deep bass notes on a powerful sound system can be felt as they pulse through your body? Ultra low bass notes that can only be felt are part of the infrasound spectrum. This is sound that is silent, below the range of human hearing. What happens when the human body is assaulted with infrasound repeatedly over long periods of time? Depending upon the amplitude or intensity, it produces feelings of extreme discomfort, a feeling that the body is vibrating. Such feelings intensify as the level of infrasound is increased. In effect, infrasound in the right hands, can serve as a weapon of torture. There are other effects that can enhance infrasounds use as a weapon of torture. Depending upon the frequency and intensity, infrasound can keep you awake, or, induce sleep. Therefore, it can serve as a remote means of causing sleep deprivation. Infrasound also has a deteriorating effect on work performance similar to alcohol ingestion. An excellent British research paper providing a synopsis of current research on infrasounds effect on humans can be found at this link.
However, there is one effect of infrasound that can prove deadly during long-term exposure. Infrasound induces stress and causes the body to secrete the hormone Cortisol. This effect is a medically recognized danger of long-term infrasound exposure (see research paper link above). In fact, exposure to infrasound during sleep also stimulates Cortisol production by the body. Why is infrasounds effect on Cortisol so significant?
The hormone Cortisol, produced by the adrenal gland, plays a vital role in preparing our body for stressful fight or flight episodes.It increases blood pressure, blood sugar levels and has an immunosuppressive action ... that provides needed alertness and energy during stressful experiences. However, during long term stress, or if Cortisol production is prolonged, its effects on the human body can become deadly. It can cause hyperglycemia, brain damage, weakening of the immune system, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other complications. It actually begins to shut down immunity, digestion, healthy endocrine function ... The bottom line is this: Prolonged Cortisol production in our bodies eventually causes death.
