EcoWatch, Jan. 11, 2014: The roll call of U.S. sailors who say their health was devastated when they were irradiated while delivering humanitarian help near the stricken Fukushima nuke is continuing to soar. So many have come forward that the progress of their federal class action lawsuit has been delayed. Bay area lawyer Charles Bonner says a re-filing will wait until early February to accommodate a constant influx of sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and other American ships. [...]

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy Education, Jan. 6, 2014 (55:45 in): At high levels you wind up with hair loss, vomiting, diarrhea — all of those experiences were experienced by the sailors on the USS Reagan, the aircraft carrier […] The health effects of the Reagan crew are real. There’s no denying that these brave men and women were exposed to high levels of radiation. But I don’t know if the suit is ever going to work because when you’re in the military, there’s limits on what and how you can sue.
