More Vets Join Fukushima Lawsuit

 

The Latest Pentagon Cover-up

 

 

By Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall

 

Navy vets Jaime Plym and Maurice Enis marked the second anniversary of the world’s worst nuclear disaster by joining the lawsuit filed by more than 100 sailors serving on the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan immediately following the nuclear explosion in Fukushima on March 11, 2011. The Ronald Reagan was ordered to Fukushima from South Korea to provide humanitarian assistance to local residents affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. The sailors delivering the assistance weren’t informed until after they were irradiated that there had also been nuclear explosions at three of Fukushima’s nuclear plants.

Clearly the sailors should have worn protective clothing and taken potassium iodide tablets for protection against I-131, a type of radioactive iodine that causes thyroid cancer. It’s a great mystery why they didn’t. All the ship’s officers were given iodide tablets, despite experiencing significantly less radiation exposure.

Predictably the vets who were nuked went on to develop serious medical problems. However they can’t sue the US government because of a document their superiors ordered them to sign as a condition of their discharge. It releases the US government from any liability for medical problems linked to radiation sickness.

Thus they are suing the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), claiming the company hid the true risk of radiation exposure as the Navy provided relief to Fukushima residents. The original lawsuit against TEPCO was filed in December, but recently thirty plaintiffs have been added and a hundred more are in the process of joining.

Flynn and Enis told their story at the Fukushima Symposium at the New York Academy of Medicine on March 11-12. The event was cosponsored by the Helen Caldicott Foundation and Physicians for Social Responsibility. As usual the full story didn’t make it into the corporate media. Since their discharge Flynn and Enis have no medical insurance, which makes it virtually impossible to access treatment for their conditions. In addition to suing TEPCO, they are also fighting to get their medical problems recognized as Service Connected to enable them to qualify for VA services.

The British Daily Mail has the most extensive coverage of the Fukushima lawsuit at Dozens of Vets Join Lawsuit and Two Navy Vets Join TEPCO lawsuit. However you can hear Flynn and Enis tell the whole story in their own words by watching their March 11th press conference at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rVM_A3ulDs

 

The Broader Cover-Up

 

The sad saga of the Ronald Reagan is part of a broader cover up by TEPCO, the Japanese government, the Obama administration, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Commission for Radiological Protection (ICRP) of the long term health consequences of Fukushima. Both Japan and North America have fairly large regions affected by radioactive fallout from the 2011 nuclear accident. Instead of backtracking on the billions of dollars he approved to subsidize TEPCO to build more US nuclear power stations, Obama is participating in an international cover-up to conceal the serious long term dangers of this technology. See After 50 Years Nuclear Power Still not Viable Without Subsidies

As part of the cover up, the Japanese government has launched a campaign to get residents to buy and eat food produced in and around Fukushima. They claim that after two years the radioactive contamination has nearly all dissipated. Fukushima Governor Yuuhei Sato claims Fukushima rice is totally safe provided it emits less than 100 Becquerels (Bq) per kilogram (kg). This directly contradicts decades of Chernobyl-related research linking Cesium-137 exposure to serious medical problems in Ukrainian and Belarusian children. Following a nuclear accident, Cesium-137 persists in the soil for a little over 100 years. For other highlights of the Fukushima Symposium see The Continuing Fukushima Cover Up.

    Hi All,
    I realize the charade (although late) of the “earthquake” at Fukushima. However, does anyone know whether Japan’s neighbors like the Koreas, Taiwan, and the Philippines are in danger of radiation poison. I know someone who is planning a trip to the area and would like to caution them before they unwittingly put themselves in harm’s way.

    Thanks!

  2. It is clear Obama needs to be impeached, sent packing…..into Leavenworth. Obama is the disgrace that keeps on giving. As repulsive as Obama is, the parallel government is behind all of this. We are being programmed for early death, and don’t ask Obamacare to be your savior, it’s not going to happen.

    Watching the proceedings of the limp wristed Benghazi hearings is a pretty disgusting way to spend an afternoon. Hope and change? How about nope, he’s deranged?

  3. It gets worse. US civilians on the West coast have been heavily affected too. Check out the following info on newborn babies. I got an email on May 3, Dr. William Campbell Douglass II’s Daily Dose, which I quote here: “Now, we’re seeing some of the effects of all that radiation as the U.S. West Coast deals with a virtual tsunami of children born battling thyroid disorders.

    In the three months immediately following the 2011 disaster, the number of newborns in California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska born with congenital hypothyroidism surged by 28 percent. And in the nine months after, the number climbed by 16 percent.

    This isn’t part of some unrelated trend. Elsewhere in the nation, the number of thyroid cases in babies actually dropped. The increase was only seen on the West Coast. Not coincidentally, that’s where levels of radioactive iodine-131 — one of the most dangerous forms of radiation released during a nuclear meltdown — shot up by as much as 200 times their normal levels in the air and water.”

    Got that? Newborns’ hypothyroidism cases surged by 28%. In the past in the US, we had radiation in the Midwest and in the states East of the Rockies, due to the Nevada nuclear tests. Now the formerly-pristine West coast is irradiated too. Those babies and children of the west can look forward to thyroid cancers, but also deadly autoimmune diseases of the entire endocrine system will rise in general population.

    I’m told there’s a west coast university doing a study on Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis, UCLA I think. There is also some evidence that American Indians and Asians are more affected than the rest of the population, so there is a genetic component. My personal observations support this. Untreated autoimmune thyroid disease can quickly lead to bipolar symptoms. Of the adults I’ve met here in the US who became bipolar due to thyroid disease, all are American Indian or Chinese. The American Indians come from all over the map: Iroquois, Ojibway, Sioux, California Mission.

    • Btw, Dr. WC Douglass, in the same May 3 email, had plenty of disparaging words about the scam of psychiatry and Big Pharma, and the following quote is a small taste: “Lunatics are drawn to psychiatry careers the way arsonists go into firefighting — so if you, your kids, or your grandkids have a real problem in the brain, the LAST person you want to see is a shrink. Shrinks play one game and one game only, and that’s to get everyone hooked on meds requiring regular return trips to the office for prescription refills.

      Since children have the potential to make those return trips for decades, they’re the golden ticket in this game — and that’s the REAL reason shrinks diagnose every child they meet with the bogus non-condition known as ADHD. This scam has gotten so big now that new CDC numbers reveal 6.4 million U.S. children — including one in five high school boys — now supposedly have ADHD.”

      I will add only one thing. That is, we now have the 5th and latest version of the US psychiatric bible, the DSM 5. As if we didn’t have enough bogus “disorders”, DSM 5 has added enough new bogus disorders to ensure that EVERY man, woman, and child has at least one disorder. A “Disorder” is something as real as a fairy, something that is based on subjective observation rather than lab tests. In other words, they can just invent these disorders out of thin air, and they do. So if you should become a political or other liability to the State, it will now be easier to lock you up. Buyer beware.

  4. …and yet so many continue to enlist in a military in which it should be obvious they will sell you out, poison you, kill you, leave you hanging out to dry in a new york second whenever it fits the interests of he wussy suits. Army of One. Proud to be a marine. Come be a piece of meat.

    Matt

  5. There was no earthquake.

    Please, read jimstonefreelance.com

    • Yep this DR should hand in there PHD for calling it an accident, accidentally nuclear bombed more like. People with Phd’s are supposed to be smart right??
      they might want to sue that Israeli security firm who put gun type nukes (camera’s) in the reactors
