[…] “They have physical problems. One of them is bleeding from his rectum already. The others have problems with thyroid glands,” the sailors’ attorney, Paul Garner, told KGTV in San Diego.

Garner says one of the sailors now has cancer and recently had a baby with birth defects.

Some of the sailors experienced symptoms while their ship was in Bremerton, Wash., for maintenance and repairs starting in January 2012, a few months after returning from the humanitarian mission.

All of those traits are associated with radiation poisoning […]

Reporter: “Some of the sailors say they had symptoms within a few months of returning home to Bremerton”

    The acute exposure to a wide array of nuclear power plant toxins created their medical problems. In a a nutshell they are suffering chronic radiation poisoning. The intestinal problems and birth defect are goung to be Exhibit A in the courtroom assuming it ever gets there.

    The entire crew members of the the three ships exposed in the MOX plume off the coast of Fukushima should have received chelation treatment immediately after the exposure. But I seriously doubt many got that oind of medical attention. It will also be interesting to see if the ships carried enough potassium iodide for the crew members and more importantly.. Did the ship doctors order everyone to take the pills. That will be an easy fact to establish whether the Navy was negligent in safety procedures on board a nuclear-powered ship assisting in a commercial nuclear power plant accident. No fog of war excuse acceptable here.

  • Time Is Short Time Is Short

    "There is no science I know of that their lives are shortened," said Jennex. "But this is something that is way down the road. If it was an immediate exposure risk, they would have known that."

    I guess all the hundreds of the Chernobyl, Hiroshima and Nagasaki studies were figments of our imagination.

    I hope the defense brings this up in court, and the sailor's attorneys show slide shows of Chernobyl babies to the jury.

      he obviously does not know about medical sciences and has also never heard of medical radiation therapy, which is incidentally based on experiences and reports such as nuclear tests results, atomic bomb explosions, Unit 731 and obviously nuclear power station accidents.

      immediate danger this, immediate danger that, its rare that people die on the spot when exposed. But how soon is immediately? 1 week? 1 year? very often radiation patients recover seemingly first then deteriorate again….

      (read up on is here )

      so what does "immediate" stand for when we are talking about radiation sickness?

      time is relative, so assuming that because the actual radiation threat is going to last several hundred years and the total time it takes for Japan to recover from this, will take at least several decades. so it is fair to assume that "immediate" danger could not mean within the first few minutes after the exposure but up to several years after exposure considering that one has to take the whole span of danger time into consideration when defining "immediate"…

      or am i just dazzled and confused by too much science again? 😉

        Weird, scary, and not surprising:

        The International Journal of Knowledge Management (IJKM) covers all aspects of the knowledge management discipline, from organizational issues to technology support to knowledge representation. (encourages submissions of the following topics among others):

        Basic theories associated with knowledge creation, knowledge management, and organizational memory
        Case studies of knowledge management and organizational memory systems
        Cognitive theories of knowledge management and organizational memory
        Design of information and communication systems that facilitate knowledge transfer and sharing
        Enablers and inhibitors of knowledge sharing and knowledge transfer behaviors
        Global issues in knowledge management and organizational memory
        Issues related to the capture, storage, search, retrieval, and use of knowledge and organizational memory.

          I'm missing where he's a nuclear expert…

          If being in the "nuclear navy" qualifies you as an "expert", then so are the eight sailors filing suit…

          Are they trying to show he's a "seasoned expert"?

      • snowwy snowwy

        "knowledge management" sounds very much like "ignorance preservation" to me.

  • Info on US Navy protocol and how it was completely ignored for this event:

  • hogy

    The SoCal article finally says what the US Navy ship was there for. Apparently they were "carrying out "Operation Tomadachi" ferrying food and water to citizens in the city of Sendai in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami."
    OK–If they were ferrying stuff ship to shore, they had to be close to shore if not actually onshore. Thus the exposure of the people getting that close would have been worse.
