Well you should be able to aquire Potassium Iodide tablets at your local Chemist,apothecary,CVS,Pharmacist,
etc. Interestingly, Morton salt contained iodine for decades. That is not always the case these days, and the reasoning could be worth a new thread in
its own right.
The idea behind Potassium Iodide treatment is to saturate your Thyroid gland to prevent the absorbtion of
radioactive particles. Standard dosage is 130 mg. per day for 10 to 14 days. For infants it would be half dosage
for 10 days and no longer unless recommended by a physician.
You can also order Potassium Iodide tablets online. If you need them immediately, you should contact your
local hospital or the red cross. In our modern age, you should always have these in your first aid kit.
So be prepared. This goes for all the "Bug Out Bag' tin hat folks on ATS as well.
