How to protect against Radiation Thyroid cancer?

So they've ben talking about how it could reach the USA.

but even for Japan people.. Can they do anything that actually works or are many of them gonna get cancer?


and what about us in the USA?

I've heard Potassium Iodine, but does it work?

Re: How to protect against Radiation Thyroid cancer?

I've been listening to the news on this and at this time I don't think there will be a big problem here. To ease your mind, you could start drinking green powered drinks containing Kelp. Much better than taking those Potassium Iodide pills which could cause problems if not taken correctly

Re: How to protect against Radiation Thyroid cancer?

My hubby is extremely upset at the news who play up everything so it seems like a crisis is about to hit. He works nuclear, bilogical and chemical warfare. We are in no danger here. And the people in Japan who follow directions and stay away from the area should be alright. With the wind blowing it out and away it will dissapate....

I for one am not running out to buy anything for radiaton...but I do need some milk.
