Navy Sailor after Fukushima: I’m in a wheelchair, now it’s spreading to my arms and hands — Photo of skin with intense red burns after being in sun, suspects radiation intensified impact (AUDIO)

Published: January 20th, 2014 at 11:40 am ET


Interview with Navy Lt. Steve Simmons, Living on Earth, Jan. 17, 2014: […] We returned from deployment [aboard the USS Ronald Reagan] in September and by November my health started to decline. The first thing I noticed, I was actually driving to work, and I blacked out, and I drove my truck up on a curb. And I had gone to see the doctor to see what was going on. They ran labs, couldn’t figure anything out, and from there they sent me up to Walter Reed, to the infectious disease clinic, and same thing […] By this point [in January], I unexpectedly dropped between 20 to 25 pounds and my lymph nodes started swelling. From January to March I was running a pretty solid fever as high as 102.9. I was discharged from the hospital the first time for a so-called “sinus infection”, and three days later I was actually readmitted because that’s when my lymph nodes started swelling. During that second hospitalization I was coming out of the restroom and I stopped and my legs just buckled. And that was when the weakness started […] it just started progressing further and further. Then, shortly after that, it got to the point where [my wife] Summer was actually carrying me up and down the stairs. […] I spend all my days in a wheelchair now. My muscle weakness just continued to progress, up the legs, into my arms, my hands. Now the latest issue that I deal with is neurogenic bladder, now the signals aren’t getting from the brain to the bladder, so now I actually have to catheterize every four hours. >> Full broadcast available here

USA TODAY, Jan. 14, 2014: Sailor blames Fukushima radiation for paralysis — you’re losing sensation in your legs, and you can’t feel your legs when you’re getting 2nd degree burns on them. >> Watch the broadcast here

Lt. Simmons interviewed by Rob Sachs, Jan. 16, 2014: What the DoD’s stance is to this day — it has been the same statement that has been pushed around for years now — that you can get more radiation exposure from one month’s worth of rock, soil and sun […] How can you honestly convince somebody that after you sit in a nuclear plume over 5 hours and after you suck up nuclear contaminated waste into the water filtration system, at what point can you say there is absolutely no harm to human life? You also have aircraft coming back from folks that are stationed in Japan, some of their aircrafts were coming back with aircraft parts that are so highly contaminated that these parts have to be removed, encased, and set out on separate tarmacs for them to be picked up and shipped off to who knows where for a proper decontamination. If that is the case how can you honestly say that there is no threat or no harm to the human body? >> Full interview here

          I just went through and much of the beginning of the end indeed is just like Fukushima. As you read, the part about the Eagles telling us, and I get a bit of a tingle in me backbone. Much of it describes "fire" as in chemical burns cesium chloride. "Fire as in burned alchemically converted gold (monoatomic gold). And fire as in a tingle on your skin up to and including death. "Fire as in from the Altar (Sun) All Fission/Fusion references. Yes a good read I recommend using a Cokesbury edition. Other material in Hindu describes great ships like cities, showering Devine irradiance after rendering "unconsciousness" to restore their assailant. A way to reverse nasty mass weights back to nice. Battle of Krsna of the Godhead & King Salva of the Godhood. We can learn from what has been so brutally "debunked". There is plans for the ion wind ships in much Hindu wisdom. And they would work, if constructed today.

      • Bones Bones

        Cry not…as I said before, these sailors need to show the whole world with pictures, video, etc. constantly documenting in real-time their eventual deaths and diseases. People must FEEL these effects for any mass awakening to occur. No action will be taken en masse unless people FEEL the effects these unfortunate souls are going through. Gruesome yes, but what is gruesome is the action of Japan and the U.S. in conspiring to make their radionuclide induced, internally ingested and external dosage, diseases seem totally normal and not related to Fukushima's MASSIVE LOCA's. Empathy is stronger than words or any study.

    • OldFool

      Repost from 1/12 – The symptoms really suggest non Hodgkin lymphoma. Diagnosis is now very urgent. May have more than one type of cancer now. Lymphoma has likely caused a metastatic spinal tumor.
      If leg neurons are completely out of action, most likely
      cause would be a thoracic (mid-back) and lumbosacral (low-
      back) tumor that would cause weakness or numbness
      in the legs – difficulty walking is common. Need to find at least
      two competent civilian doctors without further delay – one to
      test/confirm the non-Hodgkin lymphoma and a spinal tumor surgeon/neurologist.

      • OldFool

        The spread of neurological symptoms to the arms and bladder imply that there is a spinal tumor that is growing very rapidly, or else multiple spinal tumors arose.
        If anybody has any way to contact this person and get them to competent Civilian doctors without delay, it would be worthwhile.
        Waste of time to deal with the Navy now.

    You would never have read such reports of civilian or military nuclear injuries before the Information Era. The wrongdoers don't need to fear a single man stealing secret documents. It's the entire Internet system that educates the masses. Great fear among the nucleorats that their deadly nuclear power plants are being exposed for the genetic and ecological damages that threaten species.

    Considering estimates that 99.99% of all planet earth species have already become extinct, we should not be surprised many species are in trouble today. Butterflies today. Naked apes tomorrow.

There is benefit in it somewhere for the builders. Twenty years later I have my answer.

  • According to this report that was published on Dr. Mercola's site earlier this year, MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), which is a derivative of DMSO, is 34 percent sulfur by weight.

    For best results in remedying radiation and other toxins, you should look to take organic sulfur rather than conventional MSM supplements.

      That's probably good. Also natural sources of sulphur are garlic, onions, eggs, mustard, and (I believe) cranberries. Sulphur is a great blood cleanser.

            Good observation. This is why it's really irrelevant that one isn't an expert in nuclear physics. Psychopathic children do grow up.

            • tarpus

              oBomya/Clintons/Bushes/Nuttyyahoos/ fit the psychopath description perfectly. The definition of a serial killer is someone who kills two or more people in different places…also describes these monsters to a tee…

              • We Not They Finally

                We can rant and rave, but WHY has this country lost the capacity to humanely govern itself? Kennedy was killed and I guess that that was just the act of a lone killer. The Supreme Court APPOINTED a President rather than honor a State's election results as constitutionally required, and it was just "The Court is moving in a different direction." 9-1-1 happened and no one even noticed that there were not even PLANE PARTS in front of the World Trade Towers or the Pentagon. The Supremes took a handwritten note from a court clerk in the 1900's, and dignified it to legalizing corporations as people.

                Then we look around and say that "they" did this and "they" did that. I don't have the answers. I'm just dismayed that so few are even posing the right questions!

                And YES, the public should take on the Navy! Whatever their wrongful lack of LEGAL liability may be, why don't they even f-ing care? Brave young kids are just cannon fodder to them? Then they are complicit in the deaths. Where are at least the retired vets on this?

            This is Ted's last interview . Tell me he didn't deserve to be snuffed out. Some people felt sorry for him and some sick woman actually married him in prison. I really (honestly) can not tell the difference between Ted and any politician or NPP owner in the world. They are seeking out power (pun intended). I feel all political offices should be done on a lottery type system, with mandatory death sentences for those who would corrupt the innocents… read a story yesterday about a corrupt judge that was skinned alive and they made a new judges chair out of it. His son was selected to be the new judge and he had to sit in the chair while he ruled…love it if they made new chairs for the NRC and TEPCO execs 😉

      i have been non violent my entire life, mlk is a hero of mine, that being said…i think dosdos statement rings a bit true… the war criminals running the US, especially the ones running the US, seem to enjoy a sick type of titillation by creating suffering and death in the lives of those they deem "lesser". again i am not advocating or condoning this, yet there is a part of me that thinks it may be the only way to get a reaction from them. and even then, i get a weird feeling they might even then, see it as an ultimate "orgasm". they just seem like an entirely different species. children are dying and they can't give two shits… it's twisted.

    One has to remember that the agenda to get rid of the American military and to build up the UN foreign forces for the take down of America has been a long standing plan. After 13 years of useless pointless wars where the banksters profit, and people's child soldiers die, the USA is almost toast. There is no money to fight a war, no forces to stand up to the chinese and russian invaders, and no infrastructure to build up a war machine. America has been set up to lose the next world war and that is the CHANGE the idiots voted for. They voted for this communist/socialists/UN take over when they voted for the illegal alien obama.

    "For those on the net who stupidly, foolishly, intentionally…and dangerously…mock the idea of radiation being a problem or potentially deadly, we suggest you get in contact with some of the brave crew members of the USS Ronald Reagan…many of whom are already gravely ill…."

    Beyond Nuclear on Thom Hartmann: "Military poisoned by Fukushima radiation"
    On Thursday evening, Jan. 2nd, Thom Hartmann hosted Beyond Nuclear's Kevin Kamps on his television program, in a segment entitled "Military poisoned by Fukushima radiation," to discuss the apparent radiation sickness and maladies suffered by sailors who served on the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier, which was anchored just a mile or two downwind and downstream from Fukushima Daiichi in Japan during the first, worst days of the catastrophe.

    Arnie Gundersen at Fairewinds Energy Education has commented on the sick sailors in a podcast.

    The re-launching of the lawsuit, brought by 71 sick (half with various cancers) Reagan crew men and women against Tokyo Electric Power Company, comes after the recent exposé by the Tampa Bay Times about sick U.S. Navy sailors who were ordered to dump radioactive wastes, over the course of 15 years, into the Atlantic Ocean, a half-century ago, aboard the Calhoun County.

      AND… the sailors being stopped from suing the Navy directly is a legal ploy, having less than nothing to do with morals, ethics, or any humanity.

      The Navy should be SHAMED onto the public stage. They've just what? — "recused" themselves? Under what standard of right or wrong are they given that right? They do not have that right MORALLY. Every retired vet in the country should be calling for the Navy to be publicly shamed. For the criminality of their MORAL stances.

    Radiation and Life
    December 2012

    "Life on earth has developed with an ever present background of radiation. It is not something new, invented by the wit of man: radiation has always been there."
    Eric J Hall, Professor of Radiology, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, in his book "Radiation and Life".
    Radiation is energy travelling through space.
    Sunshine is one of the most familiar forms of radiation. It delivers light, heat and suntans. We limit its effect on us with sunglasses, shade, hats, clothes and sunscreen.
    There would be no life on Earth without lots of sunlight, but we have increasingly recognised that too much of it on our persons is not a good thing. In fact it may be dangerous, so we control our exposure to it.
    Sunshine consists of radiation in a range of wavelengths from long-wave infra-red to short-wavelength ultraviolet, which creates the hazard.
    Beyond ultraviolet are higher energy kinds of radiation which are used in medicine and which we all get in low doses from space, from the air, and from the earth and rocks. Collectively we can refer to these kinds of radiation as ionising radiation. It can cause damage to matter, particularly living tissue. At high levels it is therefore dangerous, so it is necessary to control our exposure.
    While we cannot feel this radiation, it is readily detected…

    • ToBeExpected ToBeExpected

      This is an interesting post.. I get totally, that there are different types of radiation, however, I don't get that before man started 'messing' with his home planet, that people died of cancers like they do today…

      Man is 100% responsible for the rape and pillage of this beautiful earth… all for his own greedy, selfish pocket… and at the expense of everyone else.

      It's no wonder, folks love their fur-balls and animals so much.. humans just let us down.. time after time..

      • artika rama

        tobeexpected Everyone is trying to give a SIMPLE explanation to a COMPLEX process and it goes wrong most of the time unfortunately.
        1; ""Life on earth has developed with an ever present background of radiation""" some text from Clam s message IMPLIES that it was all good and dandy before man invented radiation (lets call it synthetic radiation )which is not true . There were cancers and tumors even before we, humans existed. Infact go to national geopgraphic s site you can find a dinosaurus with a tumor.
        2;"" At high levels it is therefore dangerous"" This text also implies that ONLY high levels of radiation is harmfull which is also not correct , low levels in LONG TIME is just as harmfull ,as acute high levels . CHeck out long term stochastic effects of radiation .
        I think the professor also knows these facts and choses his text carefully NOT to CLAIM that low levels are harmfull , but instead he IMPLIES it indirectly. You cannot find any sentence in his text saying low level is NOT harmfull .
        This is misinfo and should to be corrected .

        • We Not They Finally

          I guess that 1/20-millionth of a gram of plutonium would be called "low level radiation"? But that's enough to kill a human in the form of a "hot particle." Artika rama, you are so right about over-simplication. It is so frustrating to educate people ANYWAY. But people need to know up front, that the whole thing about low level is crap.

          • artika rama

            Wenotdayfinally absolutely , they deliberately use methods not suitable for this kind of threat . Methods / calculations used for chemicals are NOT always suitable to be used by radiation .
            Your example explains it : a tiny particle in a city would be very diluted very very low level , but just that one particle could kill someone if inhaled.
            They are very carefull with their words NOT to say it clearly but continuously they give a hint of low level radiation being natural , and harmless. I don't think you can get more natural than sunlight and everyone knows it can kill without protection if one spends too much time under the sun without protectction .
            These are deliberate attempts to downplay the harmfull effects of radiation and coming from professors and scientists makes it even worse. Have no words for it .

          • artika rama

            Wenottheydinally I have heard so many of these kinds of bull..t that I made a list of popular lies.:)

        • ToBeExpected ToBeExpected

          @Artica – Hey,I looked up the cancer in dinosaurs.. and according to this article… there was only ever one found.. out of 29 that was malignant… it was the 3.5 metre species Edmontosaurus that was most cancer-prone and was the only one with a malignant tumour. About 3% of its bones contained a lump of some sort.

          • artika rama

      I thanked you for this Clam, but in the spot.

    • mairs mairs

      Ok, here is a difference. Plants need sunlight to live, so they are exposed to radiation from sunlight. In Thailand some plant growers irradiate tropical plants to make them mutate and create new forms of familiar varieties. They've created plants with white spots and stripes or discolored areas, dwarf forms, giants, warped and wavy leaves, etc. These all breed true, as they stem from changes in their DNA brought about by being irradiated.

      • artika rama

        Mairs Unfortunately that experiment you mentioned is upon us all now . The whole pacific has turned into a test tube and every living thing in it is a test subject ,, including us humans indirectly.

        I'm unclear why Mairs is making this remark. Every bombardment of humans from run-amok nuclear energy has been known to be HARMFUL.

        Nature doesn't do this!

        • ToBeExpected ToBeExpected

          I agree, nature does not do this.. Man does this, to himself, the stuff in the atmosphere, the chemicals, the pesticides, on and on and on.. the planet has never been this sick.. ever!

          • artika rama

            tobeexpected I dont agree , I have been repeating myself for several times but nature DOES this as well , radiation from natural sources is not ANOTHER TYPE,, ITS NOT HARMLESS!! its the same harmfull radiation BUT 2 things
            1= The level , dose is much lower
            2= we cannot avoid it
            except from those 2 factors EVERY BIT OF RADIATION INCREASES YOUR RISK ,,
            Natural and man made radiation ARE NOT TWO DIFFERENT things PERIOD . They are both RADIATION ,, exact the same , but at a much lower amount ,, thats the difference .
            If you increase the amount , eg lying in the sun without protection for long time , then natural radiation from suns rays will cause cancer as well ,, NO DIFFERENCE ,, PERIOD.

            It is misinformation to present natural and man made radiation as 2 different types . Its false.

            Natural radiation has been causing mutations since the beginning of time ,;those mutations have altered the genes and caused variations in the charcteristics of the species,; some of those characeristics brought some advantages to the mutated type ,;, the mutated type having advantage has proliferated winning over the nonmutated type ,;, and thats how evolution progressed ,;, and thats how we evolved ,how we came to be .
            In short : EVOLUTION IS THE PROOF THAT NATURAL RADIATION CAUSES MUTATIONS ,, its not less harmfull , we DO NOT have tolerance /adaptation to natural radiation . It does cause cancer and mutations and it is cumulative.
            These are the facts .

                sadiedog PS when i use CAPS LOCK doesnt mean i am ranting or shouting ,, i use caps lock old fashioned way ,, just to emphasize the important points ,, my questions are not for intimidation or anything ,, as i allways say , nobody knows everything ,, if there is something i missed or if i something i dont know i would like to learn ,, i say what i know ,, doesnt mean i know better then you or anything ,, i just want to know if there are things i missed or i didnt know , so if there is i would definitely like to know . Please do explain 🙂

              • artika rama

                sadiedog I dont understand what you are trying to say sadie . You are not saying anything except from pasting links . I know about isotopes what they are and all those new elements created by man .the bottom line is in the end natural and man made radiation are NOT 2 different things . Theya re both harmfull and they are both CUMULATIVE ,, the only difference is that natural radiation is usually much lower than man made .
                Am i missing something ? Please explain .

    January 13, 2014 — (TRN ) — Civil Defense authorities are warning Americans to DROP AND COVER if they see a sudden, extremely bright light. Apparently, planet Earth is entering one of two debris fields from the recent Comet ISON and there is a high probability of meteors from the Comet tail, coming into our atmosphere and detonating. Doctors are warning that the shock wave from such a detonation can kill you.

    TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — At the Emergency Management Agency of Utah (UEMA) conference on Jan 9, 2014, Physicians for Civil Defense issued the following statement:

    All Americans, starting with first responders and emergency managers, need to know this basic life-saving principle: "Drop and cover if you see a sudden very bright light."

    Such a light will be followed by a deadly shock wave within seconds. Those who drop and cover will probably survive. Those who do not are likely to be killed or suffer severe injury.

    During the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor explosion, a fourth-grade teacher in Chelyabinsk, Yulia Karbysheva, saved 44 children from potentially life-threatening window glass cuts by ordering them to hide under their desks when she saw the flash.

      Carla. Great read, but made me sick [compensation issues]. And just saying, the combat vets sprayed in the Nam [agent orange] mostly died before compensation. Kids were mutants. My friends Nam baby was a 'normal torso'. It's coming Carla, and in huge numbers…

    They will try to put a lid on it because time is on their side.

    Over 5,000 sailors were on that ship, this is just the beginning.

    Over 12,000 sailors were in that fleet. None of them affected? Yet?

    Why did they allow visitors to come aboard, and then sail to Bremerton to decontaminate?

    They are now swapping the Washington/Reagan home ports???

    They don't want to "waste" money on decon for the Washington.
    Really, Japan is that 'hot'?

    Or they don't want to port the Reagan in San Diego cause it is hot?

    Hard to believe this is the new normal.

  • timemachine2020 timemachine2020

    I salute the troops of Operation Tomodachi. Not their fault, they were doing thier job. Following orders. The lack of warning andd or protection from the radiation falls squarely on our leaders. Heads should roll at the top. Court Marshalls for the officers of the Reagan and their superiors. LETS NOT FORGET the thousands and thousands of our military still stationed in Japan. There are 23 active US Military bases in Japan. 4 in the Tokyo area. What about all these troops still left in japan, IN HARMS WAY!! We need to start raising heell demandding that our troops be brought home, before they too become statistics of fukushima.. Heeree is a list of those bases.

      time. N/S Korea must have heavy contamination do to wind direction on 3.11.11.. Think I read somewhere that S. Korea had to recently quarantine an imported vehicle due to heavy radiation. What about 'OUR' imports? These money-grubbing-bat-shit-crazy-head-up-their-ass-types running this fascist-corporate-lemming-farm called America act like WE don't even exist. Until April 15th rolls around..

        Just me…the A-hole from this morning..I don't have all day to sit and comment on every post but I will tell you this I took your comment about Nam and agent orange personal, more are alive that were exposed than you know..If you've got numbers to back that statement up then I want to see them….over

          speedy. dont need list or numbers. hubby was in the Nam TWICE. last out in '72 "clean-up". died awhile back from agent orange complications. there are tons, and tons of forums. many just give up, drugs, alcohol, psych, homeless…babykillers they were called. hated and tormented by their own people. the same fuking hippies that are now taking out the world. one side of me mourns for the world, and the other say's Hell Yeah…

            Hoooooooold ooooon. Fucking hippies are the ones that protested AGAINST the war in Vietnam and nuclear power.

              Sadie. To clarify before I get crucified. Read it again. I was referring to the hippies that were protesting, name calling, and fleeing to Canada [or fled] MANY, MANY of these folks went on to be in big time government jobs, high up on the ladder. These people are the same ones that screamed out against the war. The ones who are now Professors at Berkeley. CEO's at Hanford. Please do research before you attack. And if you are one of these, so be it.

      • daphne daphne

        Yes GOM! What about our imports? I went with a friend to buy a new car 2 days ago. Honda Fit. I asked the dealer where it was made and he said the Fit was one of the few models still made and assembled in Japan! Could these cars be Hot?

    • We Not They Finally

      tm2020, I totally concur. To start with, all files should be opened up showing their radiation monitoring during that time period. If they knew (and I'd be quite skeptical that they didn't) how bad the rad readings were, and didn't move to get that ship OUT of here post haste, then the life (or death) of this young sailor and all the others are on their hands.

      There has to be something in military law about officers endangering their troops DELIBERATELY. Would like to see retired officers assist in this.

  • This may or may not be related, but in the past 3 months I have caught a total of 5 different viruses. 2 respiratory flu, 1 stomach virus and 3 head colds.

    Yes, they are all distinctly separated from each other. Each time, I come down with the virus, go through the usual getting worse then get completely better before the next one hits.

    My two small children have each caught 4 of the 5 viruses at the same time that I have, so it's not limited to just me.

    I live in California, about 45 minutes of driving inland. Never in my 40 years of life has this happened. One of the flu viruses caused both of my children, who are otherwise very healthy, to cough endlessly for a full 6 weeks!

    I'm so afraid that our immune systems are being run down by the increased radiation in our environment.

    • We Not They Finally

      That's a realistic fear. Though they are a lot of simple, inexpensive things we can do at home.

      You know, people always say take vitamin C. Well that's good, but it's only 20% absorbable! You can make it 80% absorbable or higher, also LESS cost than capsule, by making LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C at home. It encapsulates the vitamin C in lecithin and it passes through the digestive tract and directly into the cells:

      One level tablespoon non-buffered vitamin C powder, and three level tablespoons non-GMO lecithin (you can get both at the Vitamin Shoppe) Add to 16 oz filtered water (one pint.) Run through a blender for two minutes, then six minutes through an ultrasonic cleaner. That's easily found at a hardware store, $35 for a pint-size capacity, one time purchase. But even just C and lecithin blended together will be way better than C alone.

      • Thank you for the info on mixing vit c with lecithin. Also, I noticed a typo in my post. I wrote 3 head colds and meant 2. Anyway, it's been baffling that this has been happening since I eat a low sugar organic diet, exercise etc.

        I will purchase what you recommended for my family. Another strange thing is that my husband has only been sick once this year!

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        WNTF, re; lipo C. You didnt do enough research and now are perpetuating a myth! How absorbable is the vit C in an orange? Maybe 90% or more. If you take multi gram amounts, the absorption goes down. Lipo C appears nearly equal to regular in levels up to five grams. At 10 grams, lipo may double the absorption. Why though? It is not because the lipo transports it, since it is digested before going through the intestine. Maybe lecithin is good for you, maybe it works in concert with ascorbic acid in some way, but the 3x, 5x, or 10x better absorption is apparently myth.

    • Au Au

      rachaeltowne, Look at this orb exploding over San Diego. What was in it?

      • Good grief! I have no idea what that could be, but it just can't be good. I live in Northern California and have never seen anything like that here.

      • AirSepTech AirSepTech

        That is pretty interesting, thanks for the link.

        I would say it's some sort of tracking/monitoring/sensor????
        The gov would know–don't know if they would tell.

        I don't think it exploded, but was a planned release so to speak.
        It has something solid along with the 'sparkles'.
        I would say that the sparkles are 'chaff', and it is used for radar detection and to confuse airborne weapon systems.

        I have not been a big chemtrail believer/follower, however I recently learned of the efforts of USSR chemtrail following Chernobyl. I'm not sure what to think anymore. It doesn't happen much where I live.

    Mack, good stuff! Certainly the world is now getting a banana over load whether they like bananas or not.. 🙁

  • pinksailmatt pinksailmatt

    There sure are some things that are intensifying because of the radiation.

    Yesterday was pretty foggy here in Corvallis. Now, normally, in damp foggy weather, you wouldn't get much in the way of static electricity.

    Well, I was outside…air temp maybe 35F at most…fog was just hanging in the air and I was blowing up balloons. I went to put the first one I blew up down on a table…and it stuck to the palm of my hand!

    Some of the other folks there commented that it seemed rather ODD that it was doing that. Normally, you would only see static like in dryer conditions.

    What gives?

  • paschn

    We are living In terrifying and exciting times. terrifying because we are looking at massive suffering/death caused at the hands of corrupted governments and evil "people". Exciting by virtue of the witnessing a coming world cleansed of the "Synagogue of Satan" and all it's "Christian"/"Muslim" sycophants. We could actually still be alive to witness the Grand Creator's total destruction of those "ruining the Earth".


      the moment, paschn, we accepted a seat within the theater of life, we were complicit and equally as guilty as those you'd highlight. Hate to inform you, but we're all to pay the price for our self-righteous sense of entitlement…

    And many developed rashes..
    More like 'beta burn'.

    On to sloughing and abrading..
    "Upper cells are sloughed or abraded off, exposing cells that are not completely keratinized. Cell death and moist desquamation ensue. Both dry and wet desquamation occur about 1 to 4 weeks after irradiation."

    " Regeneration of the stratum corneum requires 2 months to 4 years, and this regenerated tissue will be more sensitive to other skin-damaging agents"

    Also rendering the area..photosensitive..IMHO.
    Advising these patients to stay out of the sun is prudent ..I believe.
    Another 'flame up' of radiation dermatitis is hard on the immune system of the patient.

    With the amount of almost likens 'radiation enhancement..or 'radiation recall dermatitis'.

    OOh.. looky what someone sent me 😉 LATE AND LOW-LEVEL EFFECTS OF IONIZING RADIATION : As reported as FACT in the US millitary MANUAL

  • alasanon

    I had a close personal relative who was a WWII Navy Veteran. He had been stationed in the Pacific, much like these individuals, and a bit too close for comfort, as we know now. He also had business on the mainland after Hiroshima detonated-humanitarian missions… (long before decontamination or half-lives expired)…

    He had been extremely healthy, young, strong, truly brave. I really looked up to him as a child.

    The first, most prominent symptoms of the excess radiation were skin disorders–sores, discoloration, etc. Then about 10 years after his exposure, he inexplicably suffered 5 debilitating strokes. The doctors did attribute it to Hiroshima, as there were no other possible risk factors at his young age…

    He finally got back on his feet and lived to a ripe old age, but he suffered from the skin irregularities and some side effects of the strokes for remainder of his life…. 🙁

    I remember him as so tall and stoic. One of the reasons I got on this blog is that I also clearly remember hearing him calling out in pain, calling out for help…and being told [that it was] "Hiroshima." I realized if something can take down such a man like him, it is dire.

    Those Navy seamen are not alone!..

    Navy Personnel Claim Radiation Sickness From Fukushima
    January 17, 2014 Living on Earth
    71 United States Ship sailors are suffering with what are the effects of radiation poisoning, and they're suing Tokyo Electric, that hid the truth about just how deadly the radioactive plumes were in the air and water.

    They spend all their days in wheelchairs now. Their muscle weakness just continued to progress up the legs into their arms, their hands, and now the latest issue that they deal with is neurogenic bladder. Now the signals are NOT getting from the brain to the bladder, so now they actually have to catheterize every four hours.

    A second degree burn they received while out in the sun. Radiation may have intensified the impact. Many leukemias, other forms of cancer, unremitting of bleeding of both anally and vaginally, migraine headaches, hair loss…
