X-Ray Spex-The Day the World Turned Dayglo

Stock up on those potassium iodide (KI) tablets and eat more seaweed because there just might be some radiation hitching a ride on the jet stream and headed towards the Eastside (and the rest of the West Coast) and iodide might be your only protection.

LA Weekly breaks down the various scenarios and the likelihood of radiation making it’s way here. Link.

Just remember, according to the Center for Disease Control’s pamphlet on the use of potassium iodide tablets:

Taking a higher dose of KI, or taking KI more often than recommended, does not offer more protection and can cause severe illness or death.

Okay? So don’t go crazy.

  1. The seaweed idea is good until you consider that the stuff is dried in Asia.

    Anyway, dust is like the inverse-square law. The quantity of dust declines exponentially the farther away you are. I am not that worried.

    I worry more about the health of the rescue workers, who are very close to the source.
