How to Prepare for Nuclear Situation
Aug 02, 2008
Here is a great web site that gives you some basic instructions on how to prepare for any kind of nuclear situation that may happen.
Notice that half way through the article is a recommendation about Potassium Iodide or Iodate. . . .
"When fallout is first anticipated, but has not yet arrived, anyone not already sheltered should begin using a dust protector filter mask and hooded rain ponchos. Everyone should begin taking Potassium Iodide (KI) or Potassium Iodate (KIO3) tablets for thyroid protection against cancer causing radioactive iodine, a major product of nuclear weapons explosions. If no tablets available, you can topically (on the skin) apply an iodine solution, like tincture of iodine or Betadine, for a similar protective effect. (WARNING: Iodine solutions are NEVER to be ingested or swallowed.) For adults, paint 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm each day, ideally at least 2 hours prior to possible exposure. For children 3 to 18, but under 150 pounds, only half that amount painted on daily, or 4 ml. For children under 3 but older than a month, half again, or 2 ml. For newborns to 1 month old, half it again, or just 1 ml. (One measuring teaspoon is about 5 ml, if you don't have a medicine dropper graduated in ml.) If your iodine is stronger than 2%, reduce the dosage accordingly. Absorption through the skin is not as reliable a dosing method as using the tablets, but tests show that it will still be very effective for most. Do not use if allergic to iodine. If at all possible, inquire of your doctor NOW if there is any reason why anybody in your household should not use KI or KIO3 tablets, or iodine solutions on their skin, in a future nuclear emergency, just to be sure."
We are making Potassium Iodate available for you at $20/bottle of 200 tablets. These should be stored until needed. Do not take them as a vitamin supplement for iodine. They are measured for adults to take one tablet twice a day. For children, take half that amount. For infants, take 1/4 of a tablet. For pets, estimate by body weight.
If you anticipate friends, relatives, or even neighbors staying with you during the radioactive time, you will simply have to stock extra, because chances are, they will not be prepared. The vast majority of Americans are unprepared for such an event, because in spite of all the fear today, most people still just don't believe such a thing could happen to us.
The fact is, however, that ANY nuclear event ANYWHERE around the globe is going to affect us. The winds will carry radioactive material around the globe. If it takes a week to get here, so much the better, but it is not going to be safe until 45 days after the last incident. Radioactive levels are considered at a safe level after 45 days.
That is why the Potassium Iodate tablets are packaged in bottles of 200. Each bottle will last 50 days per adult, who takes two tablets a day 12 hours apart. This is cheap thyroid insurance, and like any insurance policy, one always hopes that one never needs to actually use it.
However, because there are paranoid Israelis and angry Iranians, the world is not a very safe place any more. In my view, Isaiah 29:6 describes a nuclear incident in Palestine (Jerusalem), so to me it is only a matter of time before something happens over there, if not a little closer to home. An incident over there may take a week to get here, but don't wait until then to get a stock of Potassium Iodate or other preparations. If you wait too long, you may have to compete with a mad rush of the other 99% of Americans who also waited until the last minute. I suspect that all stocks of Potassium Iodate will run out on the first day, and no one will sell you any for ANY price.
I am not trying to preach fear, but prudence. If you prepare ahead of time, you will reduce your level of fear accordingly if and when such an incident occurs. To order from us, just email me at:
Tell me how many bottles you want, and send me a check in the mail, or use the PayPal "Donation" button and write a note in it letting me know what it is for. We will send these to you right away.
Or, of course, since there is no particular emergency right now, you can just write in your order and send it by postal service to me at: God's Kingdom Ministries, 6201 University Ave. N.E., Fridley, MN 55432.
