US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide

Recently, top scientists have warned that another major earthquake in Fukushima, Japan, would require a total evacuation of the West Coast of North America. This comes as plumes of mysterious steam rise from the crippled nuclear reactor at the Fukushima nuclear site.

Meanwhile, in the United States, the Department of Health and Human Services has recently placed an order for 14 million doses of potassium iodide. This compound is useful for more or less one thing and one thing alone: protecting the body from radiation poisoning in the event of severe nuclear accidents. This order is scheduled to be delivered before the beginning of February, 2014.

The DHHS has, according to a solicitation posted on the website for Federal Business Opportunities website, requested, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” which amounts to a total of 14 million tablets.

Last month 71 U.S. sailors who helped during the initial Fukushima relief effort returned home with thyroid cancer, Leukemia and brain tumors as a result of their exposure to high levels of radiation, 300 times the safe level of exposure. They are currently suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) who has been caught repeatedly lying in order to downplay the severity of the Fukushima disaster. Last September the BBC reported that radiation readings were 18 times higher than TEPCO was publicly admitting.
Stay tuned, and pass the word along to those you know living on the West Coast of North America, or in Asia. There is a lot that we aren’t being told.
