Potassium Iodate (KiO3) 85mg Tablets
Heaven forbid a nuclear disaster like Chernobyl or Fukushima ever happens again, but preparing for the worst case is always better than not being prepared. More and more countries around the world are developing radioactive weapons and we are surrounded by nuclear power plants, any of which could have reactor problems that leak harmful radiation into our food, water, and even our air supply.
Tiny amounts of radioactive iodine 131 ingested or inhaled can do lasting and permanent damage to your body because the thyroid will absorb and hold onto the bad iodine. By taking Potassium Iodate tablets, the thyroid will not absorb any of the harmful radioactive iodine 131 because it is inundated with "clean" iodine. Your body will quickly be able to dispose of the harmful chemicals, thus keeping your chances of thyroid issues, including cancer, in check. Ki03 tablets have been shown to be so effective that government agencies are stockpiling them to have on hand in case of disaster.
Protect yourself from all eventualities and add some Potassium Iodate Tablets to your emergency supplies today.

When To Start Taking Potassium Iodate
Do not take a thyroid blocker now. You will be wasting your supply. It will not help you unless you are caught in a fallout. We repeat, Do Not Take a thyroid blocker UNLESS the authorities tell you to do so. Authorities should notify you that a fallout is headed your way and you should start taking KiO3 as a single dose about 3 to 12 hours before exposure, or up to 10 hours after exposure (although this is less effective). If there is a “nuclear event” and you are down-wind, you need to take KiO3 before the radioactive plume reaches you. If you do not have KiO3 at the time of the event, then it is most likely too late to take a thyroid blocker unless the authorities can reach you with the proper dose during fallout conditions.
Recommended Dosages In Case of Nuclear Disaster
Potassium Iodate 85 mg tablets:
- Adults (age 12 years and older) : 2 tablets daily – 3 to 14 days.
- Children (age 3 years to 12 years) : 1 tablet daily – 3 days or longer.*
- Infants (age 1 month to 3 years) : 1/2 tablet daily – 1 to 3 days.*
- Babies (age newborn to 1 month) : 1/4 to 1/2 tablet – 1 to 3 days.*
*Authorities may determine that repeat or longer dosing may be necessary.
*Under heavy plume conditions 1/2 tablet (85 mg) / 1/4 tablet (170 mg) may be given to newborns as a starting dose. It is extremely important that young children be taken out of harm’s way as soon as possible.
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding you should normally not take more than two doses for a minor “reactor leak.” Babies up to a month old should only receive one dose for a minor “reactor leak.” However, this should be determined by authorities.
