My stomachs nearly dropped when I read the news about the New Jersey nuclear reactor put on alert status due to Hurricane Sandy. I don’t claim to know the inter-workings of nuclear power plants, but it’s clear that natural disasters and power plants do NOT mix. Fukushima anyone?
Here’s what happened due to Hurricane Sandy…

This New Jersey situation seriously hits close to home, but there are reactors all across the country, and with it comes the potential for shit to hit the fan for any of you out there.
If you haven’t read my previous post, Potassium Iodide: Anti-Radiation Tablets In Case of Nuclear Event, then please…do it now. What I’m talking about right now isn’t for entertainment, or laughs and giggles. It’s a serious matter you need to be prepared for.
My family already has potassium iodide on deck for a situation such as this. We’re ready to rock ‘n roll and pop these dang pills if needed. But what about YOU?
Potassium Iodide tablets are cheap. It cost less than you ordering yourself a soup & sammich; less then two cups of fancy coffee at that Starbucks place. There’s absolutely no reason and no excuse not to have a stash of potassium iodide on hand for you and your family. It’s the simplest, easiest thing you can do to protect yourself in the event of a nuclear emergency. Don’t be left ass out when shit hits the fan.
If skepticism has got the best of ya, then go on and call me the crazy lady or the queen of major hype. It doesn’t really matter. My job is done here so long as you’re informed. The ball is in your court now. Get the full deets on why you need a stash of potassium iodide and how it works. Then go on and do as you see fit.
