As the devastation in Japan continues to unfold, it is becoming apparent to me anyway, that we need to be prepared for potential radiation issues. I don’t know if it will happen or not, but since many sellers of the potassium iodine pills are price gouging on fearful buyers, I thought this might be helpful for some. I can’t seem to find the other information I used to possess about actually consuming a small amount of the same iodine one can find in the drug sections of stores. Somewhere buried in the deepest bowels of this computer, I am sure it exists!
Anyway, this may be helpful, but I am not a doctor, and I don’t play one on tv either:
Another way to protect self — using Iodine 7% Tincture (farm supply) swab abdomen with cotton ball daily. Let dry before covering with clothing to prevent staining clothes. Your body will absorb what it needs. When skin remains stained, your thyroid is filled with good iodine thus protected from the radiation. A farmer told me about this.
So, for what it’s worth, I thought I would share it.
