Product Description

There are 14 tablets in each package of iOSAT TM , which will protect one adult for two weeks. Anyone remaining in a contaminated area for more than two weeks should consider the use of additional iOSAT TM tablets as directed by Public Health Officials.

Children from age 3 to 18 years old who weigh less than 150 pounds should take 1/2 tablet. Children from age one month to 3 years should take 1/4 tablet. And infants less than one month old should take 1/4 tablet. If necessary, children too young to take solid food or unable to swallow a tablet can take iOSAT TM dissolved in a liquid (such as chocolate milk) or in a soft food such as applesauce.iOSAT TM Tablets are FDA approved for seven years and should be stored unopened in a dry environment at room temperature. Each iOSAT TM Tablet provides 24 hours of protection. Anbex was formed shortly after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979. The company received its NDA (the FDA approval to sell the product) in 1982 after FDA review of the product and its manufacturing process. The iOSAT TM package comes with a Patient Product Inserted along with the tablets in a sealed package.

I like the professional way these ioSAT brand Potassium Iodide tablets are packaged. Each packet has 14 tablets, which equals 14 adult daily doses. Each tablet is individually foil-wrapped in a packet. This is great for keeping track of how many you've taken. I have one packet for each member of the family, and if an emergency arises, it will be easy to keep track of who took his/her supplement.

I thought I'd post some basic information on Potassium Iodide as an emergency supplement:

The thyroid gland uptakes iodine from the bloodstream. Radioactive iodine is one of the most common of the radionuclides that may be released by nuclear fallout. If it is ingested or inhaled, the radioactive iodine will be taken up by the thyroid, greatly increasing the risk of thyroid cancer. To help avoid this, you want to saturate the body with a source of stable iodide. If the thyroid's iodine receptors are all "taken" by the non-radioactive iodide, the radioactive iodide will generally be excreted by the body.

The effectiveness of potassium iodide (KI) was proven after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. Some areas with heavy nuclear fallout after Chernobyl were NOT given potassium iodide supplements, and others were. Two decades later, studies show that the rate of thyroid cancer among populations given potassium iodide soon after the accident were the same as the rate among populations that were not affected by Chernobyl. However, populations that were affected by Chernobyl, but were not given the supplement, have shown epidemic experiences of thyroid cancer.

Note that potassium iodide cannot protect against any other causes of radiation poisoning. Dirty bombs, for example, produce radionuclides other than radioactive iodine.

Considering my geographic location in the Mid-Atlantic region where there are several nuclear reactors and what is happening in Japan with the Fuchushima reactor, I thought that these tablets should have a place in our disaster plan. They shipped to us fast and glad to have them on hand. You may want to consider the same, more especially those of you on the west coast.

A great addition to my Emergency Storage kit.
If ever needed the individual wrapped tablets will make keeping track easy for the first couple of weeks.
And if never needed, the price was right for the comfort of knowing I have them.
I will be ordering more for me and others.

Anyone that was on the west coast when Fukashima melted down is well aware that in an emergency these become extremely hard to come by. If you need them and can't get them you are in real trouble. Each package is a 14 day course of thyroid treatment. I'd highly recommend having at least one of these per each member of your household. At around $7.00 it's a very small price to pay for the fact that it could very well save your life.

Watch out for the cheap crap people are selling these days, stick with the good stuff, IoSat. Don't let your life be at the hands of some generic version that's not undergone years of testing.

Look for more tips at [...]

Enjoy

These Potassium Iodide Tablets are like any type of insurance; provides peace of mind that you have done something to prepare for an event that you hope never happens. We have fairly well stocked "grab bags" that we maintain since we are close to a military base that hosts VIPs when they need to go to an "undisclosed" location and will likely be asked to leave the area if things get really bad. Besides the obvious risks of our location, we are also down wind of at least one nuclear power plant so wanted to be able to take precautions to protect my family from potential thyroid contamination if there is ever a problem at the plant.

I like that they are individually sealed, which will make it easier to track dosage.

Highly Recommended!
