The FDA has known for decades that taking potassium
iodide (KI) during a radiation emergency prevents cancer.

Potassium Iodide “Known to Cut Risk of Thyroid Cancer” -FDA
“Authorities have known for decades that taking potassium iodide before or right after exposure to radioactive fallout can prevent some ill effects, especially in young children, who are most vulnerable to thyroid cancer.” "Considering its price, it just seems like a no-brainer. We should have been doing this a long time ago."
-David Lochbaum, nuclear expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists. -Source Washington Post

The benefits of potassium iodide in the midst of a radiation disaster are clear. -Source FDA

American Thyroid Association Endorses Potassium Iodide as “Essential” for Preventing Radiation Related Cancer. “The American Thyroid Association (ATA) endorses the use of potassium iodide (KI) to protect people from absorbing radioactive iodine released during nuclear emergencies. High levels of radioactive iodine exposure can cause thyroid cancer, especially in babies and children up to 18 years of age. KI reduces the risk of thyroid cancer in exposed populations. ATA advocates KI as an essential adjunct to evacuation, sheltering, and avoiding contaminated food, milk, and water.” -American Thyroid Association

Common Questions and Answers:
Is Potassium Iodide safe for me and my children?

It's perfectly safe and has been used for decades by civilians and military
personnel with no ill side-effects. It can be taken by children of any age.
A complete FDA guidance information sheet is included with every order.

How much do I take and when do I take it?
Adults take 2 tablets a day only during radiation exposure. Children 3 to 18 years old
(<155lbs) should take 1 tablet per day, age 1 month to 3 years take 1/2 tablet per
day and birth through 1 month take 1/4 tablet.

What is Potassium Iodide and how does it work?
Radioactive Iodine (radioiodine) is produced in nuclear explosions and comes down in
fallout. If inhaled or ingested, it resides in the thyroid gland increasing a risk of cancer.
Potassium Iodide harmlessly saturates the thyroid, blocking absorption of radioiodine.

Is this the same as Potassium Iodate?
THE ONLY FORM EVER APPROVED BY THE FDA,
Potassium Iodide as found in Pro-KI is recommended over
Potassium Iodate by the World Health Organization because the
Iodate form can cause gastro intestinal irritation and discomfort.

Does ProKI have an expiration date?
This batch of Pro-KI expires on 7/2014, although if kept under proper conditions,
Pro-KI could last significantly longer.

Rad Block radiation inhibiting tablets - potassium iodide

Radiation Blocking Tablets - Potassium Iodide

Rad Block anti-radiation pills are taken for radiation protection in the days and weeks
following exposure. Effectively blocks radiactive elements from absorption into the
human body. These elements can be very dangerous, posibly causing thyroid cancer
and other disease, making this an important
and easy addition to any preparedness kit.

Directions: Use as directed by physician. The FDA recommends taking
Potassium Iodide (KI) immediately if exposure to dangerous radiation
is possible (for example, if downwind from a nuclear reactor disaster,
nuclear explosion, radiation hazard or near a so-called dirty bomb)

2000 World Health Organization Dosage Guidelines:
Adults should take two tablets per day. Children age 3-12 take one
tablet daily, under 3 years old, 1/2 a tablet.
Best when taken with food or milk. 65mg tablets / 50mg iodine

Identical to the Pro-KI above- same dose of potassium iodide per tablet
