stock up on potassium iodide tablets in case of nuclear exposure caused by terrorists

Please see new information about Potassium Iodide for Radiation Exposure in Detail-Document #270323

People are asking if they should stock up on potassium iodide tablets in case of nuclear exposure caused by terrorists...an attack on a nuclear power plant...or a conventional explosive in which a little radioactive material is mixed in and called a "dirty" nuke.

This could release radioactive iodine...which is absorbed by the thyroid and can cause hypothyroidism or thyroid cancer years later.

Young children are most at risk even at low radiation exposure. Most adults over 40 have a lower risk...unless exposed to high levels.
