Emergency Survival Kit

In the event of accidental release of radioactive iodine into the atmosphere, Potassium Iodide (KI) is recommended for use as an aid to other emergency measures, such as evacuation and food control measures. When used correctly, potassium iodide can prevent or reduce the amount of radioactive iodine taken up by the thyroid gland.

The effectiveness of KI as a specific blocker of thyroid radioiodine uptake is well established. When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.

As it is now becoming evident that it is critical to prepare for all potential local and international nuclear disasters and terrorist attacks. For example, the current nuclear crises in Japan has made us aware of the importance of having Potassium Iodide as this life-saving item will be unavailable following an unexpected Nuclear Disaster.

Why do you need Potassium Iodide?

Unfortunately the Federal Government only has enough potassium iodide for people living within 10 miles of nuclear reactors in the United States, according to U.S. officials (U.S.N.R.C. - United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission). Therefore we must prepare ourselves and our loved ones.
