December 12, 2013 — (TRN ) — Crew members in their mid-20’s from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan are coming down with all sorts of radiation-related illnesses after being deployed less than 3 years ago to assist with earthquake rescue operations off the coast of Japan in 2011.  It looks as though the onboard desalinization systems that take salt out of seawater to make it drinkable, were taking-in radioactive water from the ocean for the crew to drink, cook with and bath-in, before anyone realized there was a massive radiation spill into the ocean.

Charles Bonner, attorney representing sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan said “the crew members were 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.”

Bonner says that as a result of this exposure, the 51 sailors have come down with a host of medical problems, “They have testicular cancer, they have thyroid cancers, they have leukemias, they have rectal and gynecological bleeding, a host of problems that they did not have before … people are going blind, pilots who had perfect eyesight but now have tumors on the brain. And it’s only been 3 years since they went in.” Bonner pointed out that these service men and women are young people, ages 21, 22, 23 years old and no one in their family had ever suffered any of these kinds of illnesses before.

  1. Do NOT even get me started on what a load of bullshit these uneducated sh*** (TND edited – do not use cuss words as those are triggers used by systems at libraries, etc., to block websites – you have a voice here and are not censored so long as you use clean langauge – thank you) are trying to pull. They simply see this as an opportunity to maybe make a few bucks for not doing a damn thing. I was deployed to the area in question specifically beacuse of my area of expertise in radiation protection. People that are making claims most likely are trying to get something for nothing or are just plain dumber than a box of rocks and did not listen to the honest truths we provided in the days and weeks following. If you refer to the reference article it states somebody on the carrier did not know that there was a noted, however, small increase in rad levels until a month later; well that dipshit must not have had a pulse or conversed with a single person or listened to a sibgle 1MC for a month…I give up.

  2. I’m calling BS on this one. I know a thing or two about a carrier’s distilling units – you’re not getting any contamination through that. It’s about as pure as it gets. They have to add stuff to the water just to make it drinkable. Water itself, pure water, doesn’t stay radioactive.

    Only two guys at Fukushima got enough to give them an increased risk of cancer, the Reagan didn’t get nearly enough.

    You’re talking about a nuclear powered ship. With highly trained nuclear operators. They aren’t flying into nuclear related scenarios blind.

  3. I really don’t find this story credible. Granted, whenever I hear someone say “radiation spill,” it instantly tells me they don’t know enough about nuclear power, radiation, or contamination to be talking about it, and if they don’t know enough to tell the difference between radiation and contamination, they really don’t know enough to be credible.
