|Fukushima, 3 minutes after the Disaster|
Folks, I was going to let this roll around until my "Engineering" cycle, but I feel it's too important to NOT get the word out immediately.
Do NOT take Potassium Iodide pills. They're poison. OK, if you live within 10 miles of the Japanese Fukushima plant and the skin on your bones and muscles is warping, DO take them. It's a pill of last resort, and in that sense, sure, take them if you must.
But for EVERYONE ELSE? Do NOT take these pills!
Wanna have em on hand, if say you live 10 miles within say one of Salem Co., NJ's 3 Nuclear Power reactors? Fine. Have em and hold on to em. But really, can we get any MORE paranoid? Because I honestly don't think we can.
GW Johnson, Professional Consulting Engineer, goes into the explicit details: here.
|A two-headed calf. Just one of the effects that may occur by ingesting the "emergency ONLY" teratogen that is Potassium Iodide. Although I really don't think humans should worry about giving birth to calves, one-headed or otherwise.|
"Potassium iodide is a mild irritant and should be handled with gloves. Chronic overexposure can have adverse effects on the thyroid. Potassium iodide is a possible teratogen."
