I see again in the news that Kim Jong Un has launched multiple rockets. I don’t know about others but I think he is steady working up his courage and will get there soon enough. Then we may all need to be ready and prepped for radiation fallout.
If you consider preparedness as something valuable, chances are you have majority of the supplies required to survive almost anything that can happen.The truth is that while there are lots of potential disasters out there, most of these can give you the same issues at a local level, such as collapsed food supply chain, utility disruption, and law and order breakdown.
If you are equipped to make it through the aftermath of natural disasters, you will also be equipped to survive widespread rioting or general strike.But, according to Fergus Mason, nuclear disasters are a completely different story. Whether is a nuclear attack or the meltdown of a power station, once atomic power joins the mix, things can change. Try to imagine those usual problems such as empty store shelves, nothing happens every time you turn on the faucet or light switch, and groups of unprepared people are desperate in trying to steal all your stuff.
Imagine that there is a radioactive dust that lightly sprinkles all this mess.Post-nuclear survival tends to be very complicated because you still need to deal with short term day to day problems such as food, water, and security. Neglect these and you will never make it. But, you will also not make it if you neglect nuclear danger though it will take much longer for it to become obvious.The primary concern with nuclear radiation is the fact that your human senses cannot detect it, not to mention that it has cumulative effects. A tiny radiation dose on its own may not be harmless but a series of these tiny doses can turn into a lethal one.
If you are exposed to fallout it will fill your thyroid with dangerous radiation. One of the best things you can do to be prepped is to keep on hand enough IOSAT to treat your entire family for a week or two. These tablets will provide iodine that will fill the thyroid and this will prevent a build up of radiation in it. The radiation can travels for many miles so even if you are not in the immediate vicinity of a nuclear bomb the radiation still might make it to your area.
By taking the potassium iodide from the IOSAT your thyroid will be too full to take any radiated iodine in so your kidneys will pass it through and oit of the body. These tablets are not expensive and don’t take up a lot of room so everyone should have some on hand. The dosage a person would need daily is according to the age and weight. You should take it every day until the danger has passed. For any questions you may have check out this website….USNRC.
