But we simply do not know the scale of what types of fallout we may or may not see. We simply don't know.
not so, we know where this can go, we know the distance and wind speeds, a few days at best before it could reach north america and should be diluted
enough to dissipate, a lot of particulate will be lost in the rain.
All of this is hearsay right now because even if all 3 reactors go into meltdown, this doesn't instantly mean radiation is coming to north america,
if there's fires and large explosions during a meltdown, or while the stored rods are still hot, THEN we might see some fall out.
the point being there's no reason to think you need to take any medication right now so until you know you are about to encounter radiation, and are
on your way out, just keep them handy.
Again, these won't protect you, this is merely 1 cancer you'd be avoiding, not everything else that goes along with it, if you are irradiated and
have no where to go you can skip the pill.
