The USS Reagan has a crew complement of 5,700 (and at least a couple of thousand more at sea with it on top of that if you include its battlegroup and support ships) … what are the odds of one person getting cancer from a living for months on a ship replete with on-board nuclear reactors, nuclear weapons, depleted uranium munitions, hydraulic and brake fluid, antifreeze, solvents, paint, napalm, JP-8 fuel, fire and flame retardants, etc, etc. nevermind the bogeyman of a whole spectrum of electromagnetic communications (radar, sonar, low to high frequency radio [HTML_REMOVED] satellite communications) and throw on top of that the entire crew sailing into a region with a damaged nuclear reactor. I'm not saying its impossible, but there are so many variables here.
While I acknowledge all of those variables and meant to post something highlighting all of them in a blanket statement, 110 other sailors are in on the $1billion lawsuit. Percentage of crew wise, 2%, isnt that frightening or leading much to causality.. I'm guessing they were predisposed to cancers due to genetics next?
