Thyroid protection due to nuclear accident/Radiation Protection & Updates

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

As you know the radiation are traveling fast and moving across the ocean toward CA coast. Here are some information on what you can do to protect yourself:

Thyroid protection due to nuclear accidents and emergencies

SSKI may be used in radioiodine-contamination emergencies (i.e., nuclear accidents) to “block” the thyroid’s uptake of radioiodine (this is not the same as blocking the thyroid’s re…lease of thyroid hormone).

Potassium iodide was approved in 1982 by the US FDA to protect the thyroid glands from radioactive iodine from accidents or fission emergencies. In the event of an accident or attack at a nuclear power plant, or fallout from a nuclear bomb, volatile fission product radionuclides may be released, of which 131I is one of the most common by-products and a particularly dangerous one due to thyroid gland concentration of it, which may lead to thyroid cancer. By saturating the body with a source of stable iodide prior to exposure, inhaled or ingested 131I tends to be excreted.

Potassium iodide cannot protect against any other causes of radiation poisoning, nor can it provide any degree of protection against dirty bombs that produce radionuclides other than isotopes of iodine. See fission products and the external links for more details concerning radionuclides.
WHO Recommended Dosage for Radiological Emergencies involving radioactive iodine[22] Age KI in mg
Over 12 years old 130
3 – 12 years old 65*
1 – 36 months old 32
< 1 month old 16 (* contained in 80 tablespoons of iodized salt or one tablet specific for this use)

Iodine to protect against radiation from nuclear plants from Wikipedia. See comments below: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services restated these two years later as “The downward KI (potassium iodide) dose adjustment by age group, based on body size considerations, adheres to the principle of minimum effective dose. The recommended standard (daily) dose of KI for all school-age children is the same (65 mg). However, adolescents approaching adult size (i.e., >70 kg [154 lbs]) should receive the full adult dose (130 mg) for maximal block of thyroid radioiodine uptake. Neonates ideally should receive the lowest dose (16 mg) of KI.”[23]
[edit] Historical use and analysis

Following the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster in April, 1986, a saturated solution of potassium iodide (SSKI) was administered to 10.5 million children and 7 million adults in Poland[23] as a prophylactic measure against accumulation of radioactive iodine-131 in the thyroid gland. People in the areas immediately surrounding Chernobyl itself, however, were not given the supplement.[24]

Potassium iodide’s (KI) value as a radiation protective (thyroid blocking) agent was demonstrated at the time of the Chernobyl nuclear accident when Soviet authorities distributed it in a 30 km zone around the plant. The purpose was to protect residents from radioactive iodine, a highly carcinogenic material found in nuclear reactors which had been released by the damaged reactor. Only a limited amount of KI was available, but those who received it were protected. Later, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reported, “thousands of measurements of I-131 (radioactive iodine) activity…suggest that the observed levels were lower than would have been expected had this prophylactic measure not been taken. The use of KI…was credited with permissible iodine content in 97% of the evacuees tested.”[25]

Poland, 300 miles from Chernobyl, also distributed KI to protect its population. Approximately 18 million doses were distributed, with follow-up studies showing no known thyroid cancer among KI recipients.[26] With the passage of time, people living in irradiated areas where KI was not available have developed thyroid cancer at epidemic levels, which is why the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported “The data clearly demonstrate the risks of thyroid radiation…KI can be used [to] provide safe and effective protection against thyroid cancer caused by irradiation.[27]

Chernobyl also demonstrated that the need to protect the thyroid from radiation was greater than expected. Within ten years of the accident, it became clear that thyroid damage caused by released radioactive iodine was virtually the only adverse health effect that could be measured. As reported by the NRC, studies after the accident showed that “As of 1996, except for thyroid cancer, there has been no confirmed increase in the rates of other cancers, including leukemia, among the…public, that have been attributed to releases from the accident.”[28]

But equally important to the question of KI is the fact that radiation releases are not “local” events. Researchers at the World Health Organization accurately located and counted the cancer victims from Chernobyl and were startled to find that “the increase in incidence [of thyroid cancer] has been documented up to 500 km from the accident site…significant doses from radioactive iodine can occur hundreds of kilometers from the site, beyond emergency planning zones.”[22] Consequently, far more people than anticipated were affected by the radiation, which caused the United Nations to report in 2002 that “The number of people with thyroid cancer…has exceeded expectations. Over 11,000 cases have already been reported.”[29]

These findings were consistent with studies of the effects of previous radiation releases. In 1945, millions of Japanese were exposed to radiation from nuclear weapons, and the effects can still be measured. Today, nearly half (44.8%) the survivors of Nagasaki studied have identifiable thyroid disease, with the American Medical Association reporting “it is remarkable that a biological effect from a single brief environmental exposure nearly 60 years in the past is still present and can be detected.”[30] This, as well as the development of thyroid cancer among residents in the North Pacific from radioactive fallout following the United States’ nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s (on islands nearly 200 miles downwind of the tests) were instrumental in the decision by the FDA in 1978 to issue a request for the availability of KI for thyroid protection in the event of a release from a commercial nuclear power plant or weapons-related nuclear incident. Noting that KI’s effectiveness was “virtually complete” and finding that iodine in the form of potassium iodide (KI) was substantially superior to other forms including iodate (KIO3) in terms of safety, effectiveness, lack of side effects, and speed of onset, the FDA invited manufacturers to submit applications to produce and market KI.[31]

Today, three companies (Anbex, Inc., Fleming Co, and Recip of Sweden) have met the strict FDA requirements for manufacturing and testing of KI, and they offer products (IOSAT, ThyroShield, and Thyro-Safe, respectively) which are available for purchase. The Swedish manufacturing facility for Thyrosafe, a potassium iodide tablet for thyroid protection from radiation manufactured by Recipharm AB, was mentioned on the secret US 2008 Critical Foreign Dependencies Initiative leaked by Wikileaks in 2010.[32]
[edit] Adverse reactions

There have been some reports of potassium iodide treatment causing swelling of the parotid gland (one of the three glands which secrete saliva), due to its stimulatory effects on saliva production.[33]

A saturated solution of KI (SSKI) is typically given orally in adult doses of about 250 mg iodide several times a day (5 drops of SSKI assumed to be ⅓ mL) for thyroid blockage and occasionally as an expectorant. At these doses, and sometimes at much lower doses, side effects may include: acne, loss of appetite, or upset stomach (especially during the first several days, as the body adjusts to the medication). More severe side effects which require notification of a physician are: fever, weakness, unusual tiredness, swelling in the neck or throat, mouth sores, skin rash, nausea, vomiting, stomach pains, irregular heartbeat, numbness or tingling of the hands or feet, or a metallic taste in the mouth.[34]

Japan Evacuation Updates:

Right now Japan enforced evacuation of aprox 170,000 people. IF ONLY IF there is a nuclear meltdown the Japanese government needs to tell the truth to the world. In a nuclear meltdown the radioactive cloud will reach the Pacific coast in a couple of days. It will be a good option to have Potassium Iodide just in case. I dislike to write this note but under the circunstances it is better to be informed. (Renato Longato)

What you can buy & where:

You can buy from a local health food store or Lugols solution from JCrow a:

Here is what David Wolfe recommends:

“In light of the meltdown of Fukushima: How to protect yourself and your thyroid against radiation: kelp, ginseng, ashwaganda (recently found to regrow nerves), chlorella, zeolites, fulvic acid, nascent iodine, reishi mushroom, sea salt (also salty miso), botanical (plant-derived) or lipo- vitamin C, magnesium (chlorophyll), selenium (brazil nuts), coconut butter, Megahydrate, Crystal Energy.”

DANGER – KEEP INSIDE: RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT IS IN THE AIR RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE in CA!

IT IS HERE, UPON US!  DO NOT GO OUTSIDE.

CLOSE YOUR WINDOWS. DO NOT DRIVE. NOTHING BUT THE NET, SLEEP, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!

My suspicion is that someone may have felt it necessary to release the pressure build-up in the reactor.  I say that because they must have figured out early on that they had a potential melt-down situation on their hands, so they either had 1) to “kill” the core with boron-based materials, which absorb neutrons and stop the nuclear reaction there, and/or 2) to cool the core, which they apparently are now doing with seawater.  In either case, the operators had to first open the reactor, in order to introduce the boron and seawater, or wait for it to breach, when the pressure built to a critical level.

The early reports that the U. S. Air Force was racing “coolant” to the site is probably bull feathers.  “Coolant” is what the seawater is, and they wouldn’t have had to fly seawater to Japan .  TheUSAF probably was flying boron-based materials, i.e. borates, to Japan , in order to kill, or “scram,” the reactor(s).  Frankly, the Japanese should have had sufficient quantities of borate on site, or nearby, to close down those reactors under any circumstance.  Hence, as we would expect, the first reports from the U. S. government probably were lies.  Same old story with them.

This is an example of short-sighted mismanagement, and reckless endangerment of the world, frankly.  Don’t eat fish from Japan for the next 3,755,000,000,000 years, unless you want a snootful of plutonium.  The latter is not terribly radioactive, but its toxicity, as a heavy metal, is really dangerous.  One microgram inhaled gives a person a 50/50 chance of developing lung cancer in a very short period of time.
