Finland Tells Citizens "Stock Iodine Pills" in case of "Radiation Emergency"

Fears of _actual_ nuclear war continue to grow over the Russia-Ukraine situation.  The latest example is Finland's Ministry of Health which, today, told citizens to stock up on Iodine pills "in case of radiation emergency."

The ministry presented the new recommendation at a media event on Tuesday.

The ministry said the recommendation was limited to people 3-40 years of age because of the potential risk radiation exposure poses to that age group.

The release of radioactive iodine from a nuclear incident into the environment, could build up in the thyroid gland. This is most harmful to children, who are at greater risk of developing thyroid cancer due to large doses of radiation," the ministry's statement read.

The statement noted that in case of such an emergency, sheltering indoors was the main way for people to protect themselves from hazardous radiation.

The ministry also noted that a single iodine tablet dose usually provides sufficient protection. It added that iodine rarely causes side effects, but that individuals who have thyroid conditions should use the substance with caution.

The recommended single dose for 12-40 year-olds in a dangerous radiation situation is 130 milligrams of potassium iodide. Children over 3 years of age are recommended to take half of that dose.

The ministry said that there are no iodine products suitable — nor available in Finland — for children under the age of three. However, the recommended dose for children under three years of age is 32.5 milligrams of potassium iodide, and for newborns half of this.

However, the ministry continues to recommend that pregnant women over the age of 40 keep a supply of iodine tablets at home, as fetal thyroid glands are significantly more sensitive to radioactive iodine than they are among adults.

"Public healthcare services will procure iodine tablets suitable for children under the age of three and will determine the best way to distribute them to the parents of such children and to pregnant women. Regional healthcare providers will inform people when such an iodine product is available," the ministry's statement read  (siirryt toiseen palveluun).

Iodine stocks sold out

On Tuesday afternoon, Finland's largest chain of pharmacy outlets, Yliopiston Apteekki, reported stocks of iodine tablets had practically sold out nationwide following the issuing of the ministry's statement.

Chief pharmaceutical officer Kati Vuorikallas told the STT news agency that the surge in demand has also been reflected in the increased traffic on the chain's website, which has caused the site to slow down significantly or even crash for some users.

Efforts are being made to replenish the iodine stocks, Vuorikallas added, but there is no precise schedule on when this will happen.

What is 'good' (or at least harmful) in a nuclear war is not necessarily without consequence if you do it needlessly:

your homework! I'm reading posts about eating seaweed and Nori no one seems to have a clue how this stuff works! You can't just use this stuff and think that seaweed is going to help you! You can't just use iodine and think it's going to prevent you from getting radiation! Do some research! I'm reading such stupidity on here!

Iodine is an excellent solution as long as you do not have any type of thyroid condition. So many people have a thyroid condition and they don't know about it! It will worsen your condition if you take it if you are not a candidate for it!

October 11, 2022

An annual NATO exercise focused on nuclear
weapons deterrence will take place next week in
a regular show of force displayed against the
backdrop of the war in Ukraine.

“Now is the right time to be firm and to be clear
that NATO is there to protect and defend all
allies,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg,
a former Norwegian politician, told reporters
Tuesday. “It’s a routine exercise, and it’s an
exercise to ensure that our nuclear deterrent
remains safe, secure, and effective.”

“President Putin is failing in Ukraine,” Stoltenberg said.
(Sure he is... Bwaha ha ha what a lie!)

Today folks we have an old friend the covid-19 vaxx is now going to be doing double duty for it also works as an anti-radiation protection shot. It's from the same people you came to trust during the covid-19 plan-demic as safe and effective. Now those of you that have not boosted up and the hesitator's here is your chance to survive the coming onslaught of radiation. You must first have this in your blood system before the radiation fallout begins or it will be too late, so hurry everyone get your radiation fix today.
Side effects of this shot are known to kill and maimed people.

I've taken up to 200mg Iodine for detox and know people who have gone over 500mg.
From my own experience I can say, that it takes a VERY slow increase over days and weeks, otherwise you have extremely heavy DETOXIFICATION reactions!

So, if someone with an average poisoned body (Vax...) takes 130mg straight away ... GOOD LUCK!!! :-D

However, I suspect that this is exactly the plan, so that many people will then supposed have a radiation disease.

So many people have a thyroid condition and many of them have no idea they have it. Taking iodine for people that have this condition can be a big problem. Everyone needs to know if they are hypothyroid taking iodine could really harm their health.

In fact, if you know you have a thyroid condition you should consult with a holistic type doctor to see if you're a candidate to even take iodine. It can worsen your condition if you're hypothyroid.
# SuddenKing Goro 2022-10-11 17:42
Actually a sudden pro-inflammatory reaction to shut off Thyroid function. The trick is to take a 100mg dose very shortly before radiation exposure and not for more than 10 days. Luckily, a nuclear strike you are mainly concerned with Gamma radiation, which is short duration. Also, KI only protects from radioactive Iodine.

People need to understand you can't just take iodine if you have any type of thyroid condition. They really need to consult with some sort of physician a holistic type would be best. Iodine can damage you.

However is a stated previously people do have to be very careful taking iodine. You cannot take it if you have a thyroid condition that iodine will contribute to the worsening of that condition.

Iodine and the Iodide Ion are interchangeable when in your body. The Iodide Ion is simply an Iodine atom with an extra electron.

Its my understanding that you can take a bottle of liquid iodine and place a two inch at so spot on your skin everyday until the color stays the same day after day, at that point you have all the iodine in your system that your body can take in. Safe and effective, just keep the spot on skin the same as the color when you first put it on.
