Potassium Iodate Tablets
- Each factory-sealed bottle contains 90 fresh tablets of Potassium Iodate 85 mg
- Because of the extra molecule of oxygen in Iodate, the shelf life of Potassium Iodate 85 mg is exceptional
- Medical Corps recommends that each family member should have at least one bottle in their kit. Youngsters are extremely susceptible to thyroid cancer after exposure to radioactive contamination
- Unlike other blockers, this is NOT government surplus 130-mg tablets of Ki (potassium iodide)
This is KIO3 (Potassium Iodate) Pronounced: Kay-Eye-Oh-Three
If there is a "nuclear event," and you are down-wind, you need to take KIO3 or KI before the radioactive plume reaches you. If you do not have KIO3 or KI 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. Both KIO3 and KI are thyroid blockers and are used world-wide to help prevent radioactive damage to the thyroid in the event of a nuclear incident. If a nuclear bomb detonates or a nuclear power plant is compromised or has a melt-down, then radioactive iodine is always released into the air and environment.
Protects the thyroid
Radioactive Iodine (I-131) can destroy the thyroid of humans and animals. Even small amounts of I-131 can cause cancer of the thyroid. By taking KIO3 the thyroid becomes saturated with "good iodine" and cannot absorb the "bad iodine" I-131.
Yes, animals or pets can take KIO3 too.
