As always, this product is trusted quality from The Ready Store—it won't let you down!In the event of a nuclear accident, radioactive iodine would be released into the air and could then be absorbed by the thyroid, damaging it and potentially causing death. You don't want to be left unprotected and unprepared during a radioactive emergency. For example, after the Chernobyl melt-down, all U.S. supplies of Potassium Iodide, which protects the body from the harmful radioactive iodine, disappeared for months! Health experts believe that the greatest health concerns from a nuclear accident are likely to be not from the initial explosion or spill, but from the release of radioiodine being carried downwind hundreds of miles from the original site. When Potassium Iodide is taken it floods the thyroid with a stabilized iodine, preventing 99% percent of the damage caused by radioactive nuclear fallout.
Iodide is actually more familiar than most people realize—it's the ingredient added to everyday table salt to make it iodized salt. IOSAT, which uses Iodine and Potassium, has passed all FDA tests for purity, quality, safety, and efficacy to become one of only three potassium iodide tablets in the U.S. that can be legally sold and safely ingested. Defense experts recommend keeping a supply on hand for each family member.
Potassium Iodide, of course, should only be taken when public health officials recommend and is to be used solely for emergency use. The recommended dosage is as follows: Adults and children 1 year of age or older: One (1) tablet once a day. Crush for small children. Babies under 1 year of age: One-half (1/2) tablet once a day. Crush first. To be taken 30 minutes prior to exposure.
