  • Potassium Iodine for this on the west coast........

    I want to be ready in case of a nuclear emergency but I can't find potassium iodine anywhere (at a good price). Any help would be appreciated.

    From what I read the doses will be tiny and potassium iodine can cause all kinds of issues. I'd skip it.

      Potassium iodine supps can be ordered online. Iodoral is a reputable brand. Try Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe, etc.

      Incidentally, low iodine levels are almost universal in breast cancer patients. Food for thought.

        Read about side effects please. I took the recommended amount as a supplement a while back and, whoa nelly, knocked me on my ass.

          OTOH, from what I read, the potential "issues" are pretty minor. I take potassium-iodine supps and haven't had any problems. It is one of those supps best introduced gradually, starting with a quarter dose, to avoid gastrointestinal reactions.

            Hey better safe than sorry. I just can't trust anything the government says, first they told us there was no chance radiation would seep out, it did, then they told us it wouldn't travel towards California, it has, and now they are telling us that radiation exposure is going to be minimal...you see the pattern.

                I guess I am looking at it differently. If it is a suppliment and you gradually add it that is one thing. If you take it in large quantities to avoid hyped radiation exposure it could be more harmful. Just my opinion of course, and I am glad it is working out for you Having read your blog you seem to know what you are talking about. I just do not see those rushing out to buy it now starting with a quarter dose. Then again, I am a touch jaded

                    LOL, me too.

                    How much are you supposed to take to protect from radiation, anyway? I haven't looked into how that compares to a regular, supplemental dose. Rapid introduction of a lot of potassium iodine certainly could knock a person upside down!

                      Whoa. I've never paid nearly that much for it -- I got it from a health practitioner for more like $25 for 90 tabs. Wonder if they're scalping?? Or is it a huge bottle???

                        They state it has reached....although minuscule.

                            I live under a rock and hadn't read this yet. Then I just open the paper and they are talking about it too. They said to get kelp.
                            I already take a kelp supplement daily because it is supposed to help support the thyroid and is recommended to take with coconut oil.

                            This is the one I take:

                              Most online suppliers are out, there has been a run on it since last weekend. People are stocking up for themselves and/or buying it for resale at huge markups. If you really want it for the near future you are probably gonna have to hit ebay and pay 10 times or more the normal cost. Or you can wait a month or so and get it at normal price and keep it on hand just in case. In my opinion if you don't have it already, it isn't worth paying what it costs to get it now. Wait until the panic is over. My understanding is that the radiation that has been released has a half life of 8 days so it should have decayed significantly by the time it reaches the U.S.
