___________________________

Residents living near the nuclear power plant in Pickering, Ont., will soon start receiving anti-radiation pills in the mail to protect them in the event of a radiation leak at the facility.

Starting in October, anyone living within a 10-kilometre radius of the Pickering Nuclear Plant will receive a pack of potassium iodide (KI) pills that help prevent thyroid cancer caused by exposure to radioactivity.

ďIt fills up your thyroid with iodine and therefore, if you ever get exposed to radioactive iodine, it canít get into your thyroid and it prevents thyroid cancer,Ē said Ken Gorman, Durham regionís director of environmental health.

More than 200,000 homes and businesses near the plant will receive kits containing the pills and a brochure explaining how to administer the treatment. Each package contains enough pills for one family.

Until now, potassium iodide pills have been available at local pharmacies to anyone who wanted to stock up. But in October 2014, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission ordered that the pill be distributed to all Canadians living or working within 10 kilometres of a nuclear facility.

In the event of a leak at a nuclear plant, residents are asked to evacuate the area as quickly as possible. If this isnít possible, the provincial emergency authority recommends that people stay indoors and wait for instruction from authorities.

Be cheaper and much safer to get rid of the nukes and burn clean, safe, dependable coal.

1 RAD = 1 Rem

NRC: Glossary -- Rad (radiation absorbed dose)

I understand "they" want to bury a huge pile of radio-active crap in a giant pie hole just beside the shore of lake Huron near the Bruce just upstream from the water intakes of half of Canada.
I think the radiation pills the brass have been snorting might be from a bottle be labeled "Glue"

Are you high? They are a just in case measure. You take iodine everyday. Does that freak you out man?

I take ginger every day, for many reasons including the fact that it will counteract the serotonin withdrawl schizts that happen when radiation destroys all the gut fauna and flora in the GI tract that produce the nuerotransmitters that keep a body sane.
I lost a few fistfulls of hair in the scrap biz over the years...

As you can see, it sort of works

not heard of fukushima?
the cure should NOT contain the disease

and let me tell you:
till you have actually been there
you don't get a teeshirt
Iodine does NOTHING for many of the symptoms
its a feel good solution that didn't save any one at Chernoble

"While the effective doses of most of the residents of the contaminated areas are low, for many people, doses to the thyroid gland were large from ingestion of milk contaminated with radioactive iodine. Individual thyroid doses ranged from a few tens of mGy to several tens of Gy.

Apart from the people exposed to high levels of radioactive iodine mentioned above, "

We have no worries over here. we eat enough Nori, Dulce, Wakame, etc. I put it in soups, stews, on the side as garnishes, etc. We don't just NOT glow in the dark, we sponge light waves.

The iodine pill is a mega dose of iodine that saturates the thyroid, so that it has no capacity left to take up anymore, such as a radioactive isotope of iodine.

It's way more iodine than what you will get from table salt or Irish Moss.

WTH is a "megadose"? Safe maximum is about 1,100 mcg per day according to the US National Library of medicine. Husband and I probably intake about 150 mcg per day.

I don't know the dose but it is pretty high or it wouldn't work. Any adverse side effects beat the hell out of a cancer from radiation exposure.

It made me smarter and I got a tan.


Two weeks off with full pay and paid a subcontract light work vacation to the Dominican checking out a hard rock gold claim.

Good idea. There is radon in them thar hills. Really high if them thar hills are metamorphic rock. The sun, dust, various products, military use, industrial use, the moon, seawater, smoking, birds ****...

I don't want cancer either. After installing the geothermal I seal the house up tight and rigged up a heat exchanger for whole house fresh HEPA, carbon filtered, ionized with 50gr/h O3 prairie air odds are now far far lower. 8 years now without ever smelling the cat box.

"However, the pills don't protect against any other form of radiation exposure nor do they protect any other organ. They can't reverse damage that has already occurred. Radiation pills aren't effective for persons over the age of 40 because their thyroid activity doesn't cause them to suffer much of an effect from iodine radioisotope exposure."

wow! 130 mg once. that's a bit bigger than the maximum safe daily dosage (1100 mcg). Save yourself from radiative cancers and kill your thyroid or get a thyroid tumor. Large or prolonged dosages can also cause angioedema, severe bleeding, fever, joint pain, lymph node enlargement, allergic reactions including hives, and death. Nice choice.
