IOSAT is the only full-strength Potassium Iodide tablets for radiation protection that have passed all FDA tests for safety, purity, quality, and efficacy. IOSAT is made in the USA and contains a strip of 14 tablets, with each tablet containing 130mg of potassium iodide. The tablets are double scored to split easily and cleanly into 65mg and 32.5mg child doses. Our current inventory of IOSAT expires in 2032. Minimum Purchase is 2 Packs. NOTE: All sales of IOSAT are final. IOSAT is not refundable or returnable.
iOSAT (Potassium Iodide tablets) are essential for anyone who lives near a nuclear power plant or may be exposed to radioactive materials.
Potassium iodide (KI) is a chemical compound that is often used in the treatment of radiation exposure. KI works by saturating the thyroid gland with non-radioactive iodine, preventing the absorption of radioactive iodine that may be released during a nuclear emergency.
Radiation exposure can have serious and long-lasting effects on human health. Exposure to radioactive iodine, in particular, can increase the risk of thyroid cancer and other thyroid-related health problems. By taking potassium iodide tablets, individuals can protect themselves from the harmful effects of radioactive iodine and reduce the risk of thyroid cancer.
Potassium iodide tablets should be taken according to the instructions provided with the tablets. It is important to take the tablets as soon as possible after exposure to radiation, ideally within a few hours. The recommended dose of potassium iodide may vary depending on the age and weight of the individual, as well as the level of radiation exposure.
IOSAT is generally safe for most individuals when taken as directed. However, like any medication, it can cause side effects in some people. The most common side effects of potassium iodide include stomach upset, nausea, and vomiting. In rare cases, potassium iodide may cause an allergic reaction. If you experience any unusual symptoms after taking potassium iodide, you should seek medical attention immediately.
The Importance of Shielding the Thyroid
Among the health risks linked to radiation exposure, thyroid cancer is the most prevalent and perilous, particularly in children. Over 90% of the cancer cases related to the Chernobyl disaster were thyroid-related, and thyroid damage was apparent over 200 miles downwind. Tragically, thousands of cases are still known to this day.
Proven Security and Efficiency
The usefulness of Potassium Iodide (KI) was demonstrated during the Chernobyl disaster when over 18 million individuals received the medication and were protected. However, in regions where Potassium Iodide was not accessible, thyroid damage, including cancer, surged to epidemic proportions, leading to avoidable health issues.
Who is at Risk?
Radioactive materials from power plants or weapons can travel long distances, causing fallout that poses a threat to human health. The majority of the thyroid cancer cases resulting from the Chernobyl disaster occurred over 30 miles away from the reactor, with millions of people being at risk and thousands developing cancer.
