Nuclear Hotseat #129, Dec. 10, 2013:

At 27:00 in

Charles Bonner, attorney representing sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan: They’re not only going to the rescue by jumping into the water and rescuing people out of the water, but they were drinking desalinated sea water, bathing in it, until finally the captain of the USS Ronald Reagan alarmed people that they were encountering high levels of radiation. As a result of this exposure, the 51 sailors that we represent right now have come down with a host of medical problems, including cancers and leukemias, all kinds of gynecological problems [...]  people who are going blind, pilots who had perfect eyesight but now have tumors on the brain. These service men and women are young people 21, 22, 23 years old and no one in their family had ever (inaudible) any of these kinds of illnesses before.

At 33:00

Bonner: These sailors had none of these kind of medical problems, now they have back pains, memory loss, severe anxiety. They have testicular cancer, they have thyroid cancers, they have leukemias, they have a host of problems, rectal and gynecological bleeding, a host of problems that they did not have before [...] And it’s only been 3 years since they went in. [...] The Japanese government is in a major conspiracy with Tepco to hide and conceal the true facts.

At 34:30 in

Bonner: We’ll be adding approximately 20 sailors, bringing the total number in the lawsuit to 70 to 75.

At 47:30 in

Bonner: 21 and 22 year-olds who are just beginning to start their lives, start their families, and many have little children and now they’re sick. They are going constantly to the doctors, their children are sick — we even have small children as some of our plaintiffs, because they too have developed problems.

    Very interesting release from the world health organization:

    WHO sees cancer risk rising around the world. Article states at least a 25% increase over the next decade. Thyroid, lung and breast cancers cited but no clear indication of the causastion other than alcohol and tobacco consumption. Sounds like a thinly veiled admission that something isn't right, and is getting worse.

    A retired sailor myself I sympathise with these men and woman. With 5,000 troops aboard a carrier during deployment this is just a handful of the victoms I'm sure. The ventalation intakes are throughout the ship and run deep into the belly of the ship. Top-siders and engine men both were exposed to the fallout. The good news is they have health-care. Medical records are subject to HIPAA.
    If the same fallout cloud that fell accross the ship fell accross Western Americas one might be able to judge the % of health impacts in a similar fashion. I'm sure speaking of any ailments is frowned upon, as the military is very non sympathetic towards the lame or sick. Good health care is hard to get while underway, the medical mentality is the Ship doesn't want to loose you. I'm worried about all the talk of the obvious Pacific Ocean contamination, but what is happening inland? Is there a parallel impact on health between the carrier and west coast? The health impacts both at sea and ashore must be simular.

    …we as American citizens simply don't have sufficient laws to protect us…all gone, especially after Reagan's time in power (USS Reagan), the W…really, got the last of it.
    Military members have been covertly used for testing of all kinds of weapons, materials, poisons, drugs after signing legal agreements that forbid them from ever divulging their experiences when they become sick eventually from what has been done to them. Long documented history of this.
    It is really something to cheer when anyone publicly hits up against this human research anywhere, hospitals, schools and in the military, three very common places utilized. Oh, and then there were the foster children…long list of research victims in American military/medical systems…
