I will not get into the safety or effectiveness of taking Potassium Iodide, or whether or not it will be worthwhile due to the other possible
contaminants, or whether or not it will even be needed based on how far the radiation will travel. These topics are already being discussed at
This post is only to let you know how you might still be able to get your hands on Potassium Iodide if you are wanting some. As most of you have
already read, or experienced firsthand, Potassium Iodide by itself is hard to come by, kelp tablets probably won't do the job, & trying to consume
enough Iodized salt to be effective would kill you.
Luckily, it is an ingredient in many multivitamins. I had read somewhere that it might be in men's vitamins & prenatal vitamins, but when I went to
a local Walgreen's, I couldn't find it listed on any of the bottles I looked at, so I didn't want to buy them. Then I read somewhere else that it
was in the Equate brand of multivitamins at Walmart. I stopped there on my way home from work & it was true. If you read the list of vitamins &
ingredients you will either see it say Potassium Iodide directly in the list of vitamins, or if it only says Iodine, it will say Potassium Iodide in
the list of ingredients below.
They have several variations of the Equate multivitamins, including children's chewable ,which had the same amount of Potassium Iodide as the adult
vitamins. The children's gummie version had less though, so maybe you would not want to go that route if you have the choice.
Thanks to whoever did the research & found this out originally. I saw the post, & then it was gone. So, after verifying it for myself, I decided to
post the info here in case it helps anyone else.
