Potassium Iodate


   Gives virtually complete protection from most feared consequence of a nuclear accident - a meltdown and release of radioactive iodine into the environment.

   During a nuclear disaster, such as war, terrorism, a nuclear meltdown, or radioactive spill, great amounts of radioactive iodine are often released into the atmosphere.  Taking Potassium Iodate, a Stable Iodine, can protect against radioactive poisoning by "filling" the thyroid with this harmless substance for a period of time; long enough to allow the dangerous radioactive iodine to be "blocked" (not be absorbed), and then naturally dissipate from the area.

   Up to 99% of all radiation induced thyroid damage can be prevented by taking Potassium Iodate pills.

   Potassium Iodate is a superior form of Potassium Iodide (KI) because of its extended shelf life and lack of bitter taste.  The extra molecule of oxygen in Potassium Iodate (KIO3), can guarantee the Iodate's continued freshness without adding stabilizers.  The Potassium Iodate is in a 85 mg scored tablet, 200 tablets to a bottle.  It should be kept sealed, dry, and out of reach of children.  If unopened, it should be effective for decades.

Why Is Potassium Iodate Preferred Over Potassium Iodide?

Potassium Iodate Offers:

  • Easier dosing for Adults, Children, and Pets

  • Easier for Children to ingest and absorb

  • NO bitter taste

  • Longer shelf-life

  • Easier to store or carry

  • Detailed and accurate dosage amounts on each bottle

  1. Radioactive fallout has a half-life of 8 days and remains a threat for up to ten half-lives (80 days), thus the 14 and 71 days total 85 days

  2. All information shown on this page in NOT to be considered medical advice.  For medical advice contact a medical doctor.  We are offering the product as is, with no guarantees or warranties.

  3. If possible, start dosing at least 12 hours before nuclear fallout.

Warning:  Potassium Iodate is to be used only during a nuclear emergency only.

  • Only about 1 out of 2 million people are allergic to iodine.  If a rash appears you may be only "mildly" allergic and will have to make a decision as to which is worse...radiation or a rash.

  • Remember - Children are extremely susceptible to radiation.  They come first - always!
