BENEFITS & DESCRIPTION

In the event of a nuclear emergency and the subsequent release of radioactive iodine into the atmosphere, Potassium Iodide (KI) is recommended for use as an aid to protect the thyroid from absorbing toxic levels of radiation.  When used correctly, potassium iodide anti-radiation pills 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.

Why do you need Potassium Iodide?

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, it is up to us to prepare ourselves and our loved ones for unexpected disasters such as Fukushima in Japan.
