Exactly. Some people will always feel that anyone doing anything to be prepared are "fear mongering", "irrational" or "hysterical".

Just do research, be informed, listen to others, and come to the best conclusion you can. Know that, no matter what you do, you're going to piss someone off. Just do your best not to let it get to you.

Ok... Devil's Advocate

What if they are? KI is only good for the immediate, for those who are in hot-zones and are on their way out, not for extended periods. Considering the US has stock-piled enough to cover less then 6% of the population (Gov. stocks) and private stock-piles maybe cover 1% of the population and THERE IS NO IMMEDIATE DANGER why would they not send what they have available (as many have) to Japan, where there IS immediate danger or hold onto the stock until there IS immediate danger here? Anyone in the US has time to get out of the way of any radiation coming here. KI is not going to benefit any of us, this time around.

If a US nuclear plant/event happens and someone is in the immediate radius, then you might want to have a stash, hence the reason the Gov. has allowed private companies to stock-pile and sell to the public despite the Nuclear Admin. fighting that.

I agree, it's best to be prepared and purchasing from private sellers is the option if one feels they must.

I do not agree that the Gov. should be unloading it's stock-piles to the US public, at present.

*Besides, it's not a magic pill

Because if they had, this panic wouldn't have been on a 100.000 people scale, but dozens of millions.
If most of people were able to keep calm just like japanese kept calm during the quake, there would be no such hiding.
You don't tell to a child any serious drama, because he couldn't handle it. Same story here.

Panic will dig people their own grave in any disaster, it's common sense.

The Gov. isn't making choices for you here, there was time to order KI from private sellers... that is, until they ran out. Gov. stock-piles (for emergency use) should NOT be released to the public, there is NO immediate emergency and those who believe there may be one, have time to move to a safer location, should they choose to.

Okay so the workers are now abandoning the plant

America on radiation alert: Japan faces world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl as experts warn fallout may reach U.S.

www.dailymail.co.uk...


Fears that America could be hit by the nuclear fallout from the Japan earthquake have dramatically increased as workers prepared to abandon a reactor crippled by the earthquake and tsunami last night in the face of what is set to become the world's second worst nuclear disaster - topped only by Chernobyl.

Damage at the number two reactor at the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power complex is worse than thought, the Japanese government admitted tonight, sparking fears for human health both in Japan and the U.S.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has admitted it is 'quite possible' the fallout could reach America.

I agree with you that gov should not release
stockpiles to the public. But what is on a
public shelf in a drug store is not considered
a gov emergency stockpile.
why do I now need a prescription ???
when 3 days ago I didn't ???
That IS them making choices for me.
Is it not ??? Are they gonna stop selling
vitamins cuz it has PI in it also ???
Will I need a prescription for that as well ???

Maybe I missed something... prescription?

Who is saying that is mandatory? That's ridiculous. It is (assuming you can find in stock) available all over the 'net in FDA recommended dosages (130 mg) and for those who want to purchase at the health food stores, available in lower dosages, for which you just have to compensate. Needing a prescription is a ridiculous rumor.

did you not hear the caller on Alex Jones show
and also the AJ Article and also a poster here
on ATS had his doctor laugh at him and refuse
him a prescription? Maybe, you should read a
few pages back to catch up
no offense as I think
you are a wonderful asset to ATS. Just mal-informed.
