    Nuke Pills Top $200 Per Pack On Auction Sites; Prices up 1900% in Just a Few Days

    As the effects of the nuclear disaster in Japan remain unclear, panicked US residents are doing whatever they can to get their hands on Potassium Iodide pills.

    Distributors of the FDA recommended pills have run out of stock, with one manufacturer reporting that they sold some 250,000 individual packets in a single weekend.

    As we reported in What Your Grocery Store Will Look Like In An Emergency, at the onset of a far-from-equilibrium event, the essentials go first. In Japan, food and especially water have become scarce.

    The panic is spreading, and residents in the US, fearing a fallout cloud crossing the pacific and affecting Western states, are stocking up as well.

    The top priority? Potassium Iodide – or nuke pills.

    In recent days, the Surgeon General has advised concerned West Coast residents to get a hold of Potassium Iodide in the event of a radiation threat in the US.

    The supply crunch and high demand has forced buyers to turn to the secondary market for acquiring the FDA recommended potassium iodide supplements, driving prices to upwards of $200 for a 14 dose packet. The suggested retail price offered by the supplier at NukePills.com is $10 per pack, indicating that demand has forced prices up as much as 1900% in just a few days.

    Radiation monitoring equipment like Geiger counters have also exploded in price since just prior to the nuclear crisis. Normally costing approximately $50 per unit, prices have reached several hundred dollars, an increase of over 250% in some cases:

    From the FDA:

    The effectiveness of KI as a specific blocker of thyroid radioiodine uptake is well established. When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.

      Dont look for the iosat pill form, it’s the “conveniently” packaged form that is easy to take etc. That’s the very expensice way out. If you go find just regular Lab grade Potassium iodide (KI) on ebay or anywhere else and buy in bulk, you can still get it cheap. I bought 1 Lb. for $40 yesterday without much searching. You can figure out how to dose it from posts on the KI in it until the water is completely saturated. You can tell when it’s completely saturated because the KI will no longer dissolve in the water. once this is taken care of shake the crap out of it to make sure that it’s still completely saturated and then you can take a medicince dropper and administer 4-5 drops per adult and 2 drops per child. it’s that easy, and it won’t cost you nearly as much.

    2. A couple of things…

      Our government should look into these companies raising the prices so high on these pills.  I ordered some myself last week only to get an email saying the demand was so high they were cancelling my order. If I find that they have raised their prices and didn’t fill my order so they could do that I will raise the question to the Attorney General. I suppose he is just out on the golf course playing golf with our wonderful President though.

      Scripture: Matthew 25:1-13
      1 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

      If you’re concerned and can’t find KI go get 6mil plastic, staple gun, staples, duct tape to seal your shelter, quality masks, body and head coveralls, rubber/vinyl gloves, bacteria soap, you should have most of this in your prep storage anyway. Seal your food in containers when necessary.  Oh SH*^ what about my dog?  {: (

      As I posted here previously, there is a simple process using readily available products in which an individual can readily make potassium iodine dosages in their kitchen for a few dollars — and probably enough to service their entire immediate neighborhood. Yet the simple idea of Googling ‘ how to make  potassium iodine’ eludes the descendants of wilderness pioneers, global explorers and the technical geniuses that brought us our modern world..

      I wouldn’t worry about the radiation getting here to the west coast of the U.S. Nothing bad will happen here in the U.S., we’ve been blessed for so long, we’ll be fine from any disaster. You guys make all this gloom and doom talk about economic, financial, natural disaster here in the U.S. sound like its going to happen tomorrow. It’s going to be a very slow decline here probably 30 to 50 years from now, we still have time. However, more and more of us will continue to suffer due to this current system and QE + infinity. Just look at the recent protests in Wisconsin, Indiana, etc. it was a dud compared to the Middle East/North Africa, I don’t the sheeple here will ever wake up and do anything.

    14. Th V-715 getting bid up like that is surprising. People are panicing and don’t know jack about s&%*. The levels of radiation in the USA in a worst case scenario would barely move that things meter on the lowest setting if it still works.
      Potassium iodide is a fairly common and simple salt. Its used by some darkroom photographers and for other purposes, though obviously photo grade was not manufactured for internal use and not FDA approved. The Ruskies gave Chernobyl victims a simple aqueous solution of potassium iodide, 5 drops each dose from a saturated solution and standard dropper for an adult, thats about 130mg.

      This info came from a reliable source, i.e. my sisters naturopathic doctor.

      With the crisis in Japan and threat of radiation I have been asked by patients what they can do.  I will share a brief summary of what I researched and hope that it will help you feel proactive about what you can do if that should become a real threat.  There are many natural sources of radiation.  The sun is the most common and the higher the altitude the greater the exposure.  Many of us are also exposed daily to radiation from television, cell phones, computer monitors, microwaves, and saltellites.  The potential threat of exposure from the nuclear reactor fall out at this time is of concern to many but there should also be concern  when exposed to radiation from x-ray, mammograms, CT scans, airport security scanners etc. We should be advocates for alternative diagnostic procedures when there is a safer choice as it is the accumulative effects that have the potential to cause cell DNA damage. 

      Radiation does damage by the  radioactive elements of strontium and iodine as well as free radicals. The radioactive elements have enough energy to remove electrons from the molecules that make up our tissue.  The breakdown of these chemical bonds damages the cells and creates more free radicals that also do potential damage by stealing electrons.  The nucleus and DNA of the cells are vulnerable to this damage.  When the nucleus of a cell is damaged the potential for cancer is greater.  Cells in the body that are in the process of dividing, where the chromosomal structure are exposed, are more susceptible.  Cells of the body in the process of dividing more quickly are the blood, lymph, hair, and gastro intestinal cells.  Breast, skin and lung tissue are also especially vulnerable.

      The body has an innate repair capability and will repair broken chemical bonds as quickly as possible.  Anti oxidants in our diet are empahsized as they offer chemicals that will stabalize cells as well as offer up electrons for the free radicals to bond with, leaving the cells unharmed.  There are many natural ways to protect yourself to  daily exposures of radiation as well as a catastrophic event.  Foundations of health always begin with diet.  Our body is what we eat and the repair mechanisms are enhanced by a diet rich in nutrients including anti oxidants.  Vegetables and fruits of many varieties will offer some of the greatest protection.

      Radiation is more easily absorbed with mineral deficiency.  The body will recruit the radioactive elements like a sponge where minerals are needed.  So adequate minerals in the body will keep the cells more stable and less likely to attract the radioactive elements.  Normally iodine is concentrated in the thyroid gland as  thyroid hormone is a molecule with significant amounts of iodone.  If there is a deficiency of iodine that area of the body is more susceptible to absorbing radioactive isotopes especially strontium, with resulting damage to the tissue.  Caution should be used if introducing iodine too quickly.  If there has been an underlying deficiency the added iodine may quickly replace other elements that have been substituted causing a detoxification reaction.  Symptoms such as headaches, nausea or neurological consequences may result.  There is also the possibilty of allergic reactions to iodine.  150 mcg of iodine is the daily FDA recommendation.   This is quite a small aount, just over one tenth of a mg.  However, many people are deficient in iodine in our country.  For the past few years I have personally used idodized sea salt to increase idodine intake along with gradually introducing supplemenal sources.  Food sources of iodine are generally safe and allow the body to uptake the amount needed without detrimental effects.  Food sources of iodine include sea vegetabels like algae and kelp, eggs, strawberries, fish and seafoods. Again, use caution introducing iodine too quickly as a supplement, this should be done with medical supervision.  I have available a quick skin test to assess for deficiency.  Ask if interested in this test. 

      Again adequate minerals in general are very protective.  Mineral supplemnts may be an option but a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains (expept wheat) are very good sources of minerals.  Avoid refined foods and sugar because they deplete the mineral reserves by oferring very little nutritional value. They actually rob the body of the nutrients it needs to turn the calories they provide into energy.

      A diet as close to natural foods as possible will provide what the body needs to repair and the anti oxidants it needs to protect.  Avoid large amounts of animal proteins, dairy products, refined foods and foods with chemical additives to decrease further depletion. You are thereby supporting the body’s regenerating potential.  Standard Process has a great product called Min Tran with a good dose of organic minerals as well as sodium alginate from kelp and alfalfa  These are natural chelators for radioactive isotopes.  It has 200 mcg of iodine from kelp in four tablets.http://www.standardprocess.com/display/displayFile.aspx?docid=129&filename=/Public/Lit/TabSheets/mintran5590.pdf

      Baths with added Epsom salt and / or baking soda have the ability to pull out some toxic radioactive elements.  1/2 to 1 cup of each in a bath is an easy protective measure, even after a needed x-ray or airplane flight.  We often recommend these baths in the Detoxification program as adjunts to improve elimination of toxicity from the body. 

      Foods with sulfur like cruciferous vegetables have the potential to protect against the free radicals produced by ionizing radiation.  Patients who have done Dr. Mikel’s detoxification group have all learned to love roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower.  Roasting the vegetables is a great way to sweeten that bitter sulfur taste but still get those power foods for the liver that enhance protection  from toxicity.  Standard Process products like SP Green Food and Cruciferous Complete offer the vegetables as a capsule which is an easy way to get them in periodically for more support. 

      Foods rich in chlorophyl like Chlorella,  alfalfa, dark leafy greens, celery, parsley and cilantro can also  help neutralize radiation toxicity.  Again the Standard process SP Green Food offers great sources of chlorophyl. http://www.standardprocess.com/display/displayFile.aspx?docid=168&filename=/Public/Lit/TabSheets/spgreenfoodT4650.pdf

      Bentonite clay taken internally or added to a bath has the potential to absorb the radioactive ions through the colon or from the skin.  Standard process product Gastrex has the bentonite clay as well as protective foods to support  healthy  gut lining mucosal cells.  Cholacol II is useful for someone without a glall bladder that provide bile salts as well as the bentonite clay to aborb gut toxicity. ttp://www.standardprocess.com/display/displayFile.aspx?docid=192&filename=/Public/Lit/TabSheets/gastrex4600.pdf

      Miso soup contains many ingredients that combat the effects of radiation, such as whole rice, barley, soybeans, sea salt, seaweed, onions and kojikin fungus. A 1990 Hiroshima University study concluded that people who ate miso soup regularly may have been up to five times more resistant to radiation poisoning than people who did not.

      Remember the toxicity from radiation is occurring every day.  Cell phone radiation is now being exposed as a potential cause of increase in brain tumors.  We can be educated to decrease exposure where possible when easy to do so.  It is a threshold of exposure with toxicity that begins to do damage.  Decreasing exposure increases our tolerance to unavoidable exposures.  Use your speaker when talking on the cell phone, stand away from the microwave, be cautious about over using x- ray, go for a pat down instead of an x-ray scan at the airport.  When you are exposed, the better diet you have been eating, the more protection you have.  Use the ideas above as added supports.  Feel free to ask me about which products you are taking that may be supporting you and consider adding something if you feel vulnerable at this time. 

      It is a time to use our thoughts for creating positive outcomes.  Visualize your body in perfect health and capable of protecting you from harmful effects in the environment.  Who knows if using the speaker on your cell phone protects you more than the thought that it does.  When you eat healthy foods remember to say a prayer before you eat that the foods bless your body with health and vitality.  Send positive energy to Japan, the people, the plants, the sea and the sea life.  Dr. Emoto did experiments with water and saw that toxicity from polluted lakes improved just by people’s collective thoughts and prayers. They do make a real difference.  

      We are being brought into experiences that seem out of our control…. our ability to respond rather than react is now being tested.  We can live with intention and practice what we have learned intellectually and spiriutually or fall into fear.   I encourage you to practice with whatever faith and tools you have to respond from your heart with positive intention for your well being, for mankind and for  Mother Earth.

Thanks for the tip!

      The one thing that might kill a bunch of people is panic. I agree with you sanityjones.  And taking the potassium without knowing what you are doing can have some serious ill effects.  You get more radiation from being in the sun than what you’ll be getting from a a cloud drifting thousands of feet in the air.  You’all need to relax.

      @Goldenfoxx – They also said back in the mid 80s that the radiation wouldnt make it from the Ukraine to England.  Yet it did.  Its about the same distance as Seattle to Japan too, ironically.  If it rains it will wash the nuclear dust to the ground where animals could consume it and plants “eat” it.  Am I shaking my my boots?  No, I took them off when I got home 😉

      Not saying it will happen, it would require a major event that has not occured yet and the winds to go the right direction, until Saturday they are going Eastwardly which is not good for us on the West coast if something happens.  After Saturday China gets the winds :)

      All Mizuho ATMs In Japan Have Stopped Working

      Mizuho, the second-largest financial services company in Japan, has just locked out its customers from accessing their cash. Whether or not this is related to Zero Hedge reports from yesterday that the same bank is unable to complete ¥570 billion in transactions in unclear.

      Amen, Caryn.  The same knuckle heads running around trying to buy iodine pills probably don’t have 2 cans of soup in the cupboards.
      A far more predictable tsunami coming is inflation and the destruction of everyone’s purchasing power.  I feed my cows some commercial feed to supplement grazing/hay.  Been 5 bucks/bag for quite a while ( +/- 50 cents ).  Yesterday, it was 6.50/bag….and they said the next load in would be 8/bag.  That’s over a 50% increase in a few months.  Wait until THAT kind of thing works it way thru the food chain.

      50 billion is the national cap on insurance losses in Japan, by law…not the number for the total losses. From I read, most insured will end up getting pennies on the dollar for losses, and they will easily run into the hundreds of billions.

      Comments…..tnandy, if the total destruction reaches 600 billion, that is still childs play in printing dollars, WE (the fed reserve) printed that in one day in nov 2010 to cover the “lost” 600 billion that went from bank of taiwan, to virginia, and then to “POOF GONE”(look at the feds balance sheet for that time period) That money belonged to the peoples republic of china(so they say) So I  my damage number might be low, but my comment is correct, we are in deep doodoo.

      @TnAndy
       
      Earthquake insurance is extremely expensive in Japan.
       
      It is a matter of Japanese government policy and financial law that all earthquake insurance be underwritten by 90% by non-Japanese insurers. The vast majority of these are American and European!
       
      Ironically, it is not Japan that will suffer financially so much from this catastrophe, as will the foreign entities and their financial markets. Watch the western dominoes fall!!!!

      we wouldnt be over there if they werent such savages….The way they treat their own people is appauling, and they degrading acts against their own humanity, oh they will have a day of reckoning coming, especially for worshiping a false god. or at least for painting the one god as they do.
      and again ..Never paint a true American with the acts of a Government.
      and no one is stealing shit, its been bought and paid for.

      and remember, you cant eat oil, and you cant grow food in sand..so think about that for a while.
      if it wasnt for our money buying that countrys commodity, they would all be sucking sand.
      if it wasnt for your government selling your natural resources you all would still be living in caves
      , and thats a good place for savages to live
      oh and talk about illegal wars, and the killing of innocent people…your type have a corner on that market.

    85. I forgot to add, Tecroanin, If this country is so dam bad,,why are somany of those countries people living here and going after the “American Dream” so to speak?

      To me you sound like a pissy child that hasent done your home work , and are probably too lazy to make anything happen for yourself, so its easy for you to blame someone else for your short comings.

      And also to add, what benifit do your type get from killing innocent people, that are just trying to live what ever life they can eek out in this country, when we have no more direction over the elite and their games, then you do of your countries rulers or oppressors?
