Potassium Iodide for Radiation Protection

Welcome to a brave new whirled.  The nuclear melt-down in Japan has sent ripples through Ashland, as the antidote for Iodine radiation poisoning blew off the store shelves.  This local chemist rides to the rescue by making 1000 CDC doses of Potassium Iodide for the local Southern Oregon community.

The idea of using potassium iodide is to prevent your body from absorbing radioactive iodine.  The amount in a single dose is 135 mg KI - this is a lot of iodide.  My recommendation is to take a dose now, then hold off for a few days.  Then take another half-dose and that is enough, as long as there is no direct radiation cloud.  If there is a direct cloud, take a full dose.  Cut back the dose proportional to body weight for children, pets and elders. 

Iodine is a necessary trace element in life systems, but it is not good in excess.  Radioactive iodine is very much worse, and if your body is depleted of iodine, it will absorb the radio-iodine, which then can cause extremely serious damage.  I can explain alpha, betas and gammas if there is interest.

Do not take this if you have thyroid problems.  If you are worried about reactivity, take a drop of liquid and place it on your skin.  If there is no immediate reaction, you are good to go.  If you have medical worries - consult your doctor.

Net effect is that I have a three dose bottle for 10$ and a six dose bottle for $20.  Call 541-324-7358 while supplies last.

Tainted: Can California solve pot's pesticide problem? | The Cannifornian

The big difference will be the amount of pesticides in your weed. That’s because starting Jan. 2,  when California’s vast legal marijuana market opens, all cannabis must be tested — and most chemicals will be banned. Much of California’s cannabis is tainted, including the “medicinal” stuff. But soon state-sanctioned weed may become the greenest in the nation.

Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta defend their coming oligopoly (MON) (DD) (DOW) (SYT) | Quartz

Top executives from Bayer, Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta today (Sept. 20) testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, making a case for why federal regulators should approve the mega-mergers, which stand to fundamentally reorganize global agriculture. (Executives from the sixth company involved in the consolidation, China National Chemical Corp., declined an invitation to appear at the hearing.)

Electric car use by country | Wikipedia

Increasing adoption of electric vehicles around the world has in recent years been expanding rapidly. As of the end of 2016: Cumulative global sales of highway legal plug-in electric passenger cars and light utility vehicles achieved the 2 million unit milestone in December 2016, of which, 38% were sold in 2016.[1]. The 1 million milestone had only been reached in September 2016. Global sales of the light-duty plug-in vehicle segment achieved a 0.86% market share of total new car sales, up from 0.62% in 2015 and 0.38% in 2014.[3] The global ratio between all-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) was 61:39, up from 59:41 at the end of 2015. Cumulative sales of plug-in hybrids totaled almost 800,000 units. Despite their rapid growth, plug-in electric cars represented only 0.15% of the 1.4 billion motor vehicles on the world's roads, up from 0.1% in 2015.
