Taking a highly concentrated form of potassium iodide before or immediately after exposure will "flood," or fill up, your thyroid gland with safe, stable iodine to a point where there is virtually no more room for radioactive iodine - the harmful iodine will be ignored and harmlessly excreted.

Hi I want to grab some Potassium Iodide tablets to have in my stock.
However, over here in Blighty I cannot find them for purchase on the internet....on Potassium Iodine from Kelp...
Is this the same / ok as a good radiation blocker or do I need something else.
Any help appreciated.
