A cousin within my extended family was on a US Naval Ship that entered into the mess in Japan to help save people who were stranded from the tsunami
and clear out some of the initial debris. Him a long with 30 others were sent home almost immediately because of an instant illness that has caused
them to continuously vomit, have blood coming out of their ears, and he has lost 25lbs in a matter of days. They were all diagnosed with radiation
poisoning and are back in the states in hospitals near their hometowns.
I dont know what else to make of this but the reports that radiation may or may not have been an issue right away in Japan were definitely false.
Given the fact that my family member was one of the first responders to the scene it was obviously present from the beginning. I also want to reach
out and ask if radiation poisoning is contagious or is it something that can be contained with the right treatment? I know he is in the hospital now
but i have not received an update on him since this morning. Your feedback will be appreciated.
