Navy sailor suing over Fukushima exposure dies from rare cancer near heart — TV: Navy lieutenant retires, says he’s unable to use leg muscles due to Fukushima radiation and confined to wheelchair — Both in mid-30s (VIDEOS) (ENENews, June 16, 2014):

Tweets from Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, June 11, 2014: First death of a USS Ronald Reagan sailor hit by radiation from Fukushima Daiichi while on Operation Tomodachi. Theodore Holcomb, a former USS Ronald Reagan aviation mechanic during Operation Tomodachi, died of synovial sarcoma on April 26, 2014. Holcomb was a plaintiff in the lawsuit against TEPCO. He began experiencing “breathing difficulty, pain in right shoulder, and excessive heart rate while still in service. He was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma next to his heart, causing lung and heart issues, in late 2011. Holcomb was 38 years old and a father of a five-year-old girl. Continue reading »

Attorney for US Navy Sailors: Third death from exposure to Fukushima fallout — Baby with brain cancer has died — Reporters afraid to publish stories related to case — Professor: USS Reagan sailors were first people to be hit by plume outside of plant (VIDEOS) (ENENews, July 26, 2015):

Attorney Charles Bonner, representing US service members exposed to Fukushima fallout, Jul 21, 2015 (at 10:45 in): We now have a 250+ young sailors with all kinds of illnesses, we’ve had three die. We had one of the sailors who came home and impregnated his wife. They gave birth to a little baby born with brain cancer and cancer down the spine, lived for two years, and just died in March of this year.

Q&A with Charles Bonner, Jul 21, 2015 (at 4:45 in): I was just interviewed by some reporter about this case, he said, “Now, I want to interview you about this case and the current status of your lawsuit — but, you all have won, so do I have anything to worry about? Do I have to look over my shoulder if I do this story, if I publish this story?” I said, “Yeah you do.” Because trillions of dollars do not go away easily. It’s amazing that people are afraid to even do a story on this because they’re afraid of these corporations. Continue reading »

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation (Natural News, March 10, 2015):

U.S. Navy sailors exposed to radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster have been falling ill, even as the Defense Department insists that they were not exposed to dangerous levels of radiation. Many of the sailors have now joined in a class action lawsuit against Fukushima operators and builders Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), Toshiba, Hitachi, Ebasco and General Electric.

Even if they wanted to — which many do not — the sailors would be unable to sue the Navy. According to a Supreme Court ruling from the 1950s known as the Feres Doctrine, soldiers cannot sue the government for injuries resulting directly from their military service. Continue reading »

KOMO 4 News transcript, Feb 11, 2015 (emphasis added): Men and women sworn to serve, now suffering from mysterious health problems… Local rescuers find themselves battling for the truth — and their own survival… They had no idea of what was happening in coastal Fukushima… 3 of 6 nuclear reactors suffered meltdowns, then several explosions… prevailing winds sent most of that radiation over the Pacific, where the 7th Fleet was positioned… the sailors say no one aboard ship took any extra radiation protection measures [for] “probably about a week”… [Aviation Structural Mechanic Ron] Wright remembers one time the scanners went crazy over his trousers. “It was just being like beep, beep, beep, beep… I lost my pants.”… The Navy continuously reassured them… Within a month of Operation Tomodachi… he started experiencing painful swelling in his groin.  He’s undergone 3 surgeries but expects to suffer pain the rest of his life.  Even more frightening — Wright’s diagnosis of varicocele can lead to male infertility.

Excerpts from Spiegel Online article by Alexander Osang, Feb. 5, 2015 (emphasis added):

  • Master Chief Petty Officer Leticia Morales, aboard USS Ronald Reagan during Operation Tomodachi: Three-and-a-half years [after Operation Tomodachi, she’s] trying to remember the name of the doctor who removed her thyroid gland 10 months ago… In the last year-and-a-half, she has seen oncologists, radiologists, cardiologists, blood specialists, kidney specialists, gastrointestinal specialists, lymph node experts and metabolic specialists… It was the endocrinologist who asked her if she had been on the Ronald Reagan. During Tomodachi? Yes, Morales told her. Why? The doctor answered that he had removed six thyroid glands in recent months from sailors who had been on that ship… [In Feb. 2014, doctors] found a malignant growth in her thyroid gland. Morales… found that many of the symptoms she had been suffering matched up with those experienced by people exposed to radiation. “Some of the doctors I visited confirmed as much,” she says.

US sailors in ‘full protection gear’ (Japanese style) when USS Ronald Reagan Radiation Levels On March 13, 2011 Were 370,000,000 Bq/cm3

To the sick USS Ronald Reagan sailors:

I know you have been exposed to very high levels of radiation and you need real help or you will get even sicker and die.

Contact me. I will help you.

I will tell you what to do and where to go to get professional help.

Your medical doctors do not have a clue what to do.

They cannot help you, even if they wanted to.

I can and I will help you, if you contact me.

I will tell you how you can get your life back (free of charge).

Personally I do not believe that one of those sailors will ever contact me, but at least I’ve offered my help.

Isn’t it sad that nobody knows what to do or offers help to them?

I am sure that those health professionals that really know how to help them have never heard about what happened to those sailors off the coast of Japan.

They also probably don’t know how bad Fukushima really was (and still is), because they are too busy teaching their patients how to cure themselves from cancer, diabetes, heart disease, … , etc.

I know that for a fact, because I’ve been one of them.

Emotional interview with Navy sailor suffering after Fukushima exposure: Others with same symptoms “told to be quiet… nobody’s heard from them” — Health is worsening, worried I’m going to die — Can’t really use legs or arms, hands ‘barely functional’ — Rashes all over body, spasms, shaking — Doctors tell us “it’s all psychological” (AUDIO) (ENENews, July 15, 2014):

Interview with Navy Lt. Steve Simmons who served on the USS Ronald Reagan for 3/11 relief mission, Nuclear Hotseat hosted by Libbe HaLevy, July 8, 2014 (emphasis added):

  • 21:30 in — November 2011 I noticed something was wrong… The black-out was the first thing… I started dealing with gastrointestinal issues, at first I thought I was coming down with a stomach bug… Fevers as high as 102.9°F… January 2012 was the first time I was hospitalized… [They] sent me home with a sinus infection. Three days later I was readmitted to the hospital because my lymph nodes were swelling… that’s when my legs buckled and the muscle weakness started to onset… it’s been ascending from legs, trunk, arms, hands… I can’t really use the muscles much at all. I’m down to about 20 lbs. of grip strength in my hands, which is barely functional… I do have to catheterize every 4 hours in order to empty the bladder. The migraines still get worse. The fevers still come and go, and they keep calling it a fever of unknown origin. My vitamin D is in the gutter, they just keep calling it an unspecified vitamin D deficiency… 2nd degree burns on my legs just from being out in the sun for 3 or 4 hours… that had never been a concern. Nobody can figure it out. I’ve been getting these rashes that come and go; they’ll go up my arms, my neck, around my eyes, back, stomach, legs. I deal with tremors and spasms… I am [in a wheelchair]… There’s days I don’t even get out of bed… for a long time I thought I was the only one. I had no idea there were other individuals that were even sick or dealing with ailments… Doctors wouldn’t tell us anything… I’ve had doctors tell me maybe you’re better off not knowing what you’re dealing with… You can’t have over 100 or 200 people sick, and one who has died last April, and say there is absolutely no health risk.

Interview: Navy sailor’s skin inflamed while carrying American flag exposed to Fukushima plume — “Whole left side” of body affected — “They immediately stripped clothes off, hosed him down… it became an extreme emergency” (AUDIO) (ENENews, April 15, 2014):

Interview with Charles Bonner, attorney for sickened USS Reagan sailors exposed to Fukushima releases, Linda Moulton Howe’s EarthFiles, Mar. 27, 2014:

Transcript excerpt starting at 2m 30s in

  • One sailor had been told to go up to the top of the ship and take down the American flag. He went and took the American flag down and folded it up in the triangle way they usually folded up the flag, and put it under his arm, and went all the way down to the bottom of the ship to store it. By the time he reached the bottom of the ship, his whole left side where the flag was had become inflamed. They immediately stripped his clothes off, hosed him down, washed him down with soap. He is naked there in front of all the sailors, men and women, because it became an extreme emergency. Then 17 other sailors were immediately scrubbed down.
  • He had to be discharged, he and his wife — he had ended up marrying a young lady on the ship — they both had to be discharged for medical reasons. She developed major leukemias, uterine cancers, uncontrolled uterine bleeding. And they both received a medical discharge.

AP, Apr 7, 2014: Nearly 80 U.S. sailors are […] alleging [Tepco] lied about the high level of radiation in the area [and] repeatedly said there was no danger to the crew when they were actually being blanketed with radiation that has since led to dozens of cancer cases and a child being born with birth defects [Tepco] said that there was no way the commanders of the aircraft carrier would have relied on the utility […] “It’s wholly implausible… military commanders in charge of thousands of personnel and armed with some of the world’s most sophisticated equipment, relied instead only on the press releases and public statements of a foreign electric utility co.”

Nuclear Engineer: We’ve already seen genetic defects and radiation-induced illness after Fukushima — Baby of Navy sailor born with multiple genetic mutations, mother pregnant aboard USS Reagan for Japan rescue mission (VIDEO) (ENENews, March 4, 2014):

Stuart H. Smith, Esq., attorney with decades of experience in radiation cases, Mar. 3, 2014: I noted last week that the news from the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan keeps getting worse and worse […] every week brings new reports of leaks or potential meltdowns […] there’s growing evidence a large number of Americans already face serious health threats […] the U.S. Navy crew that was dispatched to Japan for disaster relief […] $1 billion lawsuit [was] filed by the sailors […] Many of the sailors are already suffering devastating health impacts […] Among the 81 plaintiffs in the federal class action are a sailor who was pregnant during the mission, and her “Baby A.G.,” born that October with multiple genetic mutations. [Source] […] This situation is tragic, and it’s stunning that their lawsuits and the related information that has been revealed so far has not received more play in the American media.

Interview with nuclear engineer Dave Lochbaum, Union of Concerned Scientists’ Nuclear Safety Project director, TruNews, Feb. 18, 2014 (39:00 in) Q: When will we start seeing a spike in diseases and death rates attributed to Fukushima? A: Theoretically we’ve seen that already. Some of the consequences of radiation-induced illnesses are low-weight births, genetic defects, things like that — which would have already occurred. Some of the latent cancers, the latency period for cancers takes 5-6 years before you see a statistically discernible increase. But one thing that is known is that it’s going to get worse, nobody is going to get healed by this. Continue reading »

– Number of sick U.S. military first responders doubles — Around 250 victims of Fukushima radiation exposure contact attorney — Congress: Reports are ‘disconcerting’ (VIDEO) (ENENews, Jan 28, 2014):

Stars & Stripes, Jan. 27, 2014: Congress has instructed the Defense Department to launch an inquiry into potential health impacts on Navy first-responders from Japan’s March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. […] While the instruction is not law, Defense Department officials said that they were taking the request seriously. […] These individuals claim to be suffering from exposure-related ailments such as unexplained cancers, excessive bleeding, thyroid issues and ailments including loss of muscle power, migraines and vision problems. […] The suit was filed in federal court in San Diego in December 2012 seeking damages and funds to cover medical expenses. The original eight complainants were on the USS Ronald Reagan, but the suit has since expanded to include those who served aboard the USS Essex and USS Germantown as well as attached Marines. […] some claim they were pressured into signing forms confirming they had been given iodine pills when none had been provided.

Navy Officers on TV: “My body is falling apart” after Japan rescue mission, his right side “just didn’t work” — Another “can no longer use his legs” and unable to urinate — If 300 times normal radiation is OK, I don’t know what to tell you (ENENews, Jan 24, 2014):

‘Consider This’, Jan. 23, 2014: Navy personnel say they’re experiencing mysterious symptoms, including hemorrhaging and cancer [after serving iduring the 3/11 rescue mission in and around Japan] Senior Chief Michael Sebourn was assigned to investigate radiation levels in the air and on American military aircraft […] After seeing at least 10 doctors and undergoing three MRIs and two ultrasounds, he still doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. […] Sebourn says he very suddenly lost 50 to 60 percent of the power in the right side of his body. This shocked him when he walked into the gym one day and could only do his workout on his left side – he says his right side just didn’t work. Sebourn also says his right arm is now an inch-and-a-half shorter than his left when he flexes – another mystery. Administrative Officer Steven Simmons was on the USS Ronald Reagan […] Simmons suddenly lost 20 to 25 pounds, started running fevers, getting night sweats and tremors, and his lymph nodes started to swell. He can no longer use his legs and spends all of his time in a wheelchair. His weakness has traveled up to his core and arms, and the signals between his brain and his bladder have failed. He uses a catheter every four hours.

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 Continue reading »

Navy Times, Jan. 15, 2014: House and Senate lawmakers want answers on whether U.S. sailors received high doses of [Fukushima] radiation […] In the fiscal 2014 omnibus budget bill, lawmakers direct Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Dr. Jonathan Woodson to provide Congress a full accounting of those who served on the carrier Ronald Reagan during the operation and any medical problems they later developed. […] [There are] 71 plaintiffs with ailments ranging from leukemia and thyroid problems to eye diseases and polyps. […] Officials […] have said that, at least for the ground troops who served in the operation, the radiation doses they received were three times lower than those absorbed by an airline flight crew during a typical cross-country trip […] less than a quarter of the annual radiation received from background exposure such as from rocks, sun and soil […] But Congress wants the Defense Department to provide answers nonetheless. Lawmakers requested not only an inventory of any adverse medical conditions experienced by Ronald Reagan sailors, they want a detailed account of actions taken by the service to prevent radiation exposure, minimize it or treat it among affected personnel.

“Constant influx” of U.S. sailors coming forward with problems after service off Fukushima — Gundersen: “Health effects of the Reagan crew are real… these brave men and women were exposed to high levels of radiation” (AUDIO) (ENENews, Jan 13, 2014):

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.

That’s when life started changing for this U.S. Naval Administrative Officer. It was eight months after Simmons served on the USS Ronald Reagan […] Steve said his list of ailments was puzzling […]  Doctors could not [explain it]. Steve’s leg muscles eventually just gave up, and he’s now confined to a wheelchair to get around […] The Department of Defense says radiation levels were safe, and were the equivalent to less than a month’s exposure to the same natural radiation you pick up from being near rocks, soil and the sun. Steve doesn’t buy that […] [His wife] Summer says they have to face the facts […] Summer says they desperately want to give their three children a home where, after Steve’s gone, they can feel their father’s presence there.

Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl: radiation affects fish, World Ocean, West Coast – experts (Voice of Russia, Dec 25, 2013):

Three years on, the general public is still nervous about the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster of March 2011. Heavy rain has caused more contaminated water leaks over the protection dike recently. The Japanese are increasingly distrustful of atomic scientists’ claims that the contaminated water has failed to make it to the ocean. Meanwhile, The Cape Cod Times US newspapers reports that the Fukushima toxic waste is reaching the US West Coast, while 70 crewmembers of the US Ronald Reagan aircraft-carrier, involved in the relief operation in the wake of the disaster, are filing a lawsuit against the TEPCO Fukushima operator company, claiming the Japanese company had failed to warn them of all the risks that they were running during the operation.

Fox News, Dec. 20, 2013: [Months after 3/11], while still serving aboard the [USS Ronald Reagan] aircraft carrier, [Quartermaster Maurice Enis] began to notice strange lumps all over his body. Testing revealed he’d been poisoned with radiation, and his illness would get worse. And his fiance and fellow Reagan quartermaster, Jamie Plym […] also began to develop frightening symptoms, including chronic bronchitis and hemorrhaging. They and 49 other U.S. Navy members who served aboard the Reagan and sister ship the USS Essex [report] illnesses including thyroid and testicular cancers, leukemia and brain tumors […] [They] wonder if their service to their country and to Japan has left them doomed. […] the number of plaintives has more than quadrupled [from the initial dozen] as more service members come forward with radiation-related illnesses, [attorney Charles Bonner] said. Nathan Piekutoski, 22, who served aboard the USS Essex […]i says he suffered from leukemia […] “Within a few months I started getting all these weird symptoms” […] Plym says she is prepared to have her symptoms question in court […] with so many U.S. sailors coming forward, she believes justice will prevail.

Eight Crew Members Of The USS Ronald Reagan Sue Tepco For Lying About Fukushima

“(Soldiers are) dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
– Henry Kissinger (as quoted in Woodward and Bernstein’s “The Final Days”, ch. 14)

WESTERN PACIFIC OCEAN (March 23, 2011) – Sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 14 man their brooms during a counter-measure wash down on the flight deck. Crewmembers scrubbed the external surfaces on the flight deck and island superstructure to remove potential radiation contamination.

Sickened Navy crew members have lawsuit dismissed — TV: “Sailors say they have cancer”… of thyroid, gallbladder, testicles — Unremitting headaches, rectal bleeding, tumors, bodies deteriorating (VIDEO) (ENENews, Dec 19, 2013):

San Diego Union Tribune, Dec. 18, 2013:  A San Diego federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit alleging that U.S. sailors were exposed to dangerous radiation [but] left the door open for a follow-on lawsuit […] saying it was beyond her authority to determine whether the Japanese government had perpetrated a fraud […] Sailors represented in the lawsuit were deckhands who washed down the flight deck, and performed other decontamination tasks. Paul Garner, the Encinitas lawyer leading the case, said the sailors’ ailments include rectal bleeding, other gastrointestinal trouble, unremitting headaches, hair loss and fatigue. Some have thyroid and gallbladder cancer. Many are in their 20s.  Garner said he will refile the case without alleging the conspiracy with the Japanese government. The number of plaintiffs is now at 51 people. Garner said he intends to add at least 20 more when he refiles.  […]

Japan Daily Press, Dec. 18, 2013: The lawsuit claimed that the power company’s officials lied about the amount of radiation leaking from the molten-down reactors of the plant, with the Japanese central government complicit in the lie. The U.S. personnel said that it was that information that was used by the U.S. Navy to calculate their operational safety, and the health risk on the sailors in the relief effort. […] Garner said that he will be refiling the case, but this time minus the charges against the Japanese government. […]

Charles Bonner, one of the attorneys representing USS Ronald Reagan service personnel, Nuclear Hotseat, Dec. 10, 2013: The 51 sailors that we represent right now have come down with a host of medical problems, including cancers, and leukemia, all kinds of gynecological problems, people with thyroid cancers, people who are going blind […] tumors on the brain.

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.

– US Navy Sailors Sue, Readings On Ships During Disaster (Simply Info, Dec 27, 2012)

I removed the all the content of this article from…


… because those people do not allow me to quote two paragraphs or even two sentences of their work.

Because of that and because of their immediate overreaction to write a DCMA, which is by the way abused in 57% of all cases …


… I have decided to remove not only the content of the article, but also the link.

My hoster’s legal department even told them to …

“… submit a properly formatted notice pursuant to the DMCA.”

… next time.

Their DCMA was baseless and unprovable according to a senior webmaster I know.

Those people do not deserve a backlink from Infinite Unknown.

In regards to their article Greenpeace Finds Cesium In Japanese Grocery Store Fish” I’ve told them:

This article contains TWO TINY (f******) sentences and quoting them is ‘fair use’ in my opinion.

A “fair dealing” with copyright material does not infringe copyright if it is for the following purposes: research or private study; criticism or review; or reporting current events.

If however you are still insisting that you want me to remove those short infos for my readers, then I will remove everything, incl. the link to your article, but will leave a message for all those readers that still visit these articles, so that they exactly know why the content has been removed and why I am not even linking anymore to your articles.

The Fukushima disaster is killing and threatening all life on the entire planet.

I am thinking that an intelligent being will do everything it can to help avoid total disaster (like a Fukushima reactor no. 4 SFP collapse) even if it is just by raising global awareness and hoping that through that the response to the Fukushima disaster will improve because of increasing public pressure & awareness.

You state at SimplyInfo that …

“Crowd sourced information research & analysis without focus on profit.”

Without focus on profit??? If this statement is the truth, then where is the problem???

Why should you care about copyright? Because by saying that your work is not about the money one might think that you want this information to be known to as many people as possible.

Now please calm down and let me know what you want.


Infinite Unknown

They replied that they want me to remove everything and this is exactly what they get.

So I will not post anything from SimplyInfo.org/Fukuleaks.org in the future.

If you want to read their article you have to use a search engine.
