Doesn't sound like acute radiation sickness.
I will doubt this story until there is some real documentation.
I think the answer might be a radiation leak but maybe not from the Island of Japan. The Navy has been known to cover-up on radiation leaks in the past.

First off, it sounds a bit sensational.
No other ships reporting this? Carriers don't travel alone. There are 20+ ships traveling with a carrier and they are the only ship reporting illnesses? Has to be fake. Now if other ships in the group start reporting issues, then there might be something to it.edit on 16-12-2013 by wrkn4livn because: (no reason given)

Its amazing how many diseases you can contract when there is a lifetime disability check involved.
That's the long and short of it IMO. I've heard from Navy personnel who also think it's a total crock. Maybe that lawyer that runs enenews put them up to it?

Why not hear from actual ex sailors with first hand experience. Yes occasionally on a ship we vcould be exposed to things. Sometimes an area we walked by would have a simple strip of tape blocking it off with an asbestos sign.
You know what has NEVER happened is having so many people all at once coming down with major diseases. So we should assume all of this happens to people who coincodentally took part in the rescue where a major nuclear accident happened. It just coincidentally happened around the same timeframe after the incident but of course it couldnt be related.
both the Royal British and Australian Governmental studies that found the same findings. Desalination of sea water to make it potable concentrated the AO. They paid their Navy claims quickly.
