what i would like to propose to the US Gov
and FEMA would be Family Fallout Packages.
They should be color coded depending upon
which Nuclear facility you live close to.
Each package would contain enough
supplies to cover a family of four against
radiation while they leave the area around
the accident. The Gov could sell these packages
to the general public so there would be very
lil expense to the Gov. If a Nuclear Accident
happened, then public broadcasting or internet
web sites could post an emergency alert with
a color code depending on which nuclear fuels
are being used at that facility. If multiple fuels
are used then the consumer would need to
purchase 2 packages to cover both possibilities.
The packages would contain all medical supplies
needed for that reactor, pills, de-con tablets,
poncho and head gear, evacuation routes (just
like they do with hurricanes) with a map of
different rallying points depending on wind
directions. Sell these packages for app $49.95.
If the populace had this type of security and
piece of mind, do you honestly think there would
be a panic to get Potassium Iodide at the present
time?? No, they would get total protection from
their Fallout package.

Don't worry dude, I'm under no illusions that KI pills are going to protect me from high level energy exposures. But for low energy, short term exposure, it's your thyroid which is most susceptible to cancer/tumors. So I'm ready for that contingency, but that doesn't mean you need to be snarky about it.

Just shows you some people won't believe they are underwater until their last dying, drowning breath.

Better to have supplies and not need them than need them and not have them.


It's far worse to hoard something you don't need while other who do need it can't get it.....

Well ...

Thank You Zorgon for that investigative work!

Can we all look at this rationally?

Ask your selves, why would the U.S. Postal Service need 1.6 million tablets of iOSAT ???

the other is a distribution problem

Very interesting and goes to show that multiple areas of govt. are aware of this and even red cross lied yesterday stating they don't stockpile these supplies and what about japans govt. are they not equipped as well?? Many many serious questions here but I have a strong belief on what is going on. GOD help us all this is going to be a very rough next few months.

I managed to get two bottles of Potassium Iodate from Medical Corps before they shot up to $1000 a bottle. I hope I don't have to use them and they just end up being an interesting conversation piece

most excellent question
there sister BTS


Since Potassium Iodide is ONLY supposed to be used
as you're leaving a contamination area which should be
evacuated around a leak. Why would the Post Office
need 1.6 Million tablets to deliver mail to people who
are not gonna be home anyway ????

see, I told ya it was a distribution problem


Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., wrote to President Obama's science adviser, John Holdren, this week to begin enacting a 2002 law he authored that would have forced the Bush administration to expand distribution of potassium iodide pills -- which protect against thyroid cancer after radiation exposure -- to millions of people who live outside the 10-mile radius of the nation's 104 nuclear power plants where distribution is limited to and at the will of states.

Referring to entities as "bad guys" is a very juvenile way of thinking. It makes me think of the big dumb kid in the playground declaring that the clever kids who come from elsewhere are "our enemies". He doesn't like the teacher (Obama) either, because the teacher wants him to stop running his bully gang.

you can find Potassium Iodide in Kelp Or Dried Out Seaweed if you consume 3 to 5 grams it should be enough of the daily intake you need to fight the radiation fallout.

You sling "you" around pretty loosely.

I'M not at any risk in this matter. There are NO nuclear plants within 60 miles of my house, and certainly none that are in danger of earthquake or tsunami damage, so I'M not at any risk at all. I'm happy to let the government keep their little stash of "magic radiation pills" (which they are NOT) and hand them out if folks anywhere ever need them. I don't.

Because I'M not at any risk. They ought to go to folks who need them - and right now (and for the forseeable future) there aren't ANY of those in the US.

Thank you! Holy crap, I can't believe people here in the U.S. think everything revolves around us to the point that the radiation in Japan is going to deny physics just to get here. I wouldn't mind being one of the distributors of these pills though, they're laughing all the way to the bank...

Hi,

this is my first post, and in this situation the last thing I want is to help hoarders in obtaining more material to get rich off of.
However, there is a good number of us out there who simply want to be prepared as nuclear fallout from Japan becomes a reality. Also, I am sure some have families and/or friends in Japan and would like to send necessary supplies.
As suspected, Canada still seems to have an ample supply of KI in the 65mg form.
The website I purchased some KI just about 30 minutes ago is KICANADA DOT COM.
PayPal accepted, no problems....

Hoping that all who really need it will be able to get to it.....

Respectfully,

GM

I am really curious on this one.

Anyone want to take a wild guess?

Wild guess: re-supply to local hospitals and first-responder units or to have for available to ship at immediate notice...
