U. S. sailors to file suit over contamination from Fukushima meltdown

USS Ronald Reagan

TV station Fox 5 San Diego reported today:

Seventy sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan are filing suit against the Japanese company TEPCO after allegedly suffering radiation contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown.

The lawsuit states TEPCO downplayed the nuclear radiation danger until it was too late.

According to the suit, radiation experts who assisted in the decontamination say the USS Ronald Reagan sailed straight into a plume of radioactivity, which contaminated the ship’s water supply. Crew members washed,brushed their teeth and drank potentially contaminated water.

The lawsuit claims active and former sailors are suffering from cancer, blindness, impotence and fatigue as a result of the radiation exposure.
