Is Potassium Iodide safe for me and my children?
It's perfectly safe and has been used for decades by civilians and
personnel with no ill side-effects. It can be taken by children of

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.
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
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
and how old is it?
This batch of Pro-KI expires on 7/2014, although if kept under proper conditions,
Pro-KI could last significantly longer.

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

II Radiation Detector and Alarm
RADITECT is an early warning radiation alarm designed to
let you know when
unnatural levels of radiation are present, much like a smoke
alarm. It will run for
years unattended, as it runs on its own internal long life battery,
until the alarm is
triggered by a release of radiation. The alarm will increase
in frequency as the
intensity of radiation increases. It reports radiation levels
as safe, moderate, or
high as well as other useful datal using an led display. The
user does not need to
understand and remember the units of radioactivity or be versed
in the principals
of nuclear science to use it. RADITECT is small and light enough
to take with you if
you need to evacuate the area. The smart alternative to a radiation
