We now carry Potassium Iodate (KiO3) - 85mg

We now carry Potassium Iodate (KiO3) - 85mg Bottles

http://directive21.com/potassium-iodate.html

Each Bottle comes with 90 pills, expiration is either 2018 or 2019 on the bottle.

We have them for 12.95 a bottle w/ Free Shipping.
Retail value is 14.95 plus shipping.

Here is a little information on Potassium Iodate, and why everyone should have it in their BOB:

Potassium Iodate (KiO3) is a superior form of Ki. Potassium Iodate will shield (or block) the Thyroid and prevent it from absorbing radioactive Iodine.

- 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).

The latest news indicates that Nuclear Power plants, over 100 in our country, are at risk from a terrorist attack. A radiation leak from any one of these plants could be carried downwind for hundreds of miles, potentially poisoning thousands or even millions of people in large population areas. Unfortunately, a Nuclear Power Plant has over 100 times more radioactive materials than an Atomic Bomb, which can be released as fallout. One of the most abundant components released is Radioactive Iodine 131 that is then carried downwind for hundreds of miles. Thyroid cancer attributable to Chernobyl has been documented more than 300 miles from the accident site.

Very small amounts of inhaled or ingested Radioactive Iodine can do serious damage because it will always be absorbed and held in the thyroid gland. Eventually, by absorbing a large amount of radiation in the thyroid, abnormalities are likely to result, such as nodules in the thyroid, loss of thyroid function, or thyroid cancer. Taking Potassium Iodate (KiO3) in the event of fallout will saturate a person’s thyroid gland with stable ("good") iodine, so the Radioactive Iodine cannot be absorbed by the thyroid. Because the thyroid is saturated with the "good" Iodine, then any Radioactive Iodine that is later inhaled or ingested is quickly eliminated by the body. Potassium Iodate (KiO3) is now being stockpiled by many government agencies.

Berkey Guy -

Noticed that there was some mention on the site about use for pets.

"Q. Which would be best for babies, children and adults, Ki or KiO3?
A.  KiO3 because it is easier to dose. Also, KiO3 is not bitter in the stomach therefore babies, pets and the ill are able to keep it down easier." (4th from bottom of Q & A section)

Would you have dosing information about this?

Thank you

Thank you

Cat - Half a tablet.
Large dog - 1 tablet.
Small dog - Half a tablet.

Just be sure not to give your pets to much, but you would give these doses once a day.

Hey Coldhaven you see todays newspaper. Article in the local section. The health depts in meck, gaston, lincoln, iredell, and catawba are going to hand out potassium iodide to everyone who lives within 10 miles of the nuclear power plants.
Hmmm. Makes you wonder.

Nope. Do you have a link to the newspaper? Which newspaper was it? I know Duke Energy plant is nearby, or at least, near enough to be a problem if fallout is involved. Then again, I also live near Charlotte, which could be considered a target for dirty bombs or otherwise.

Purchased two bottles. I am not in the so-called 'area of effect' and so no free iodide for me. Still, at these prices, they are still a steal.

I would reccomend getting a bottle of iodate for your preps.

The nukepills website contains misleading statements about iodate that i have discussed with the make of iodate.
