Good info thank you.
I did go and buy some of that today on your advice.

I look forward to fruit salad for breakfast.

I think everyone needs to remember that KI is not a magic pill. Yes, it *may help to prevent Thyroid cancer (which may appear over a long term period) but IF we are subject to a large dose of radiation (such that we would be advised to take the pills in the first place) we have much more to worry about then a Thyroid cancer that may take many years to develop. Let's not get tunnel-vision...

Panic is good for business. I assume the manufacturers are working overtime on the next batch. I used to have it in my emergency kit years ago. Ah well... so I glow in the dark a few years


Think I will send that company a kudos letter

The world will need the business, as you say...
And yes, I am all for Japan and other neighboring nations having it all first.

Ive seen them in good outdoor/survival/camping stores.
Maybe check around some of those places if you have any.

Be safe.

One 14 pack sellig for $385 on ebay and people are buying it. NUTS.
In this case, I would like to spit on those taking advantage of a bad situation!

I ordered on Amazon days ago. They are now out of stock. Now they changed my shipping date so wont do us any good. I ordered a long time ago, but I think they are trying to sell them for more elsewhere IMO.

LOL Good point - people seem to think that if you take KI pills you can walk into a nuclear reactor and drink the cooling liquids. All it does is protect your thyroid from collecting radiation that your body HAS ALREADY ABSORBED.

So if you are absorbing radiation, you need to GTFO ASAP.

Well the gene pool will be better off if they did walk into a reactor
More of a concern is panicking people taking overdose of iodine pills for no reason

Heh! I was going to order that as well from them, until I saw the expected deliver date, around the end of March, well it'll be too late by then! =P

I ordered 2 out of remaining 5 packs from Amazon. Plus just to be sure, a second 2 lots of Thyrosafe from Canada. But site after site was coming up as sold out. Heaven knows if they would come in time anyway. But I'm in the UK so hopefully more time.
Going off to find more kelp and some iodine today.
PS those with old stocks check out their expiry date. I understand they don't last.

Why too late?
They haven't even blown up yet
Your more likely to need them when a plant near YOU blows up anyway

I understand, but geez is it a reason to go insane and empty national stocks ?
Panic is not a good thing, in any case.
I thought Japan national coldblood over last days would have taught a thing or two ... :/

Well, so they should! You people don't need it, the Japanese do.
