Stock Up On Potassium Iodide As A Nuclear Crisis Is Likely With The Escalating Russian And Ukrainian War As Putin Calls For Partial Mobilization Of Reservists!
In the last few hours as Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly announced the partial mobilization of Russian reservist soldiers to boost up his military operations in Ukraine and there was also a lot of reference about nuclear weapons in his speech. The European leaders and the Biden administration is at fault for not using peaceful diplomatic strategies to defuse the Russian-Ukrainian crisis but rather have further fueled the crisis by supplying weapons, resources and monies to the Ukrainian site and constantly using ‘gaslighting’ strategies claiming that Russia is planning to use nuclear or chemical weapons, indirectly inducing the idea to the Russians.
With the way things are developing, a nuclear crisis is very possible and Thailand Medical News
would advise all our readers to start stockpiling on potassium iodide as it helps in a nuclear scenario with radiation fallout!
Potassium iodide is a salt, similar to table salt. It is routinely added to table salt to make it "iodized." Potassium iodide, if taken in time and at the appropriate dosage, blocks the thyroid gland's uptake of radioactive iodine and thus could reduce the risk of thyroid cancers and other diseases that might otherwise be caused by exposure to radioactive iodine that could be dispersed in a severe nuclear crisis.
Potassium iodide typically protects the thyroid gland against internal uptake of radioiodines that may be released in the unlikely event of a nuclear war.
When potassium iodide is ingested, it is taken up by the thyroid gland. In the proper dosage, and taken at the appropriate time, it will effectively saturate the thyroid gland in such a way that inhaled or ingested radioactive iodines will not be accumulated in the thyroid gland. The risk of thyroid effects is reduced. Such thyroid effects resulting from radioiodine uptakes due to inhalation or ingestion, or both, could result in acute, chronic, and delayed effects. Acute effects from high doses include thyroiditis, while chronic and delayed effects include hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer.
Please ensure that when procuring Potassium Iodide, only stock up on the ones that are of 130 mg and follow the correct dosing and timing as prescribed by the U.S. FDA guidelines.
Be careful when buying Potassium Iodide supplements from certain retail online sites featuring certain leading American brands as many are basically faked products by Chinese manufacturers who have been flooding these online sites over the last few months! Buy directly from the manufacturer’s or brand’s sites only.
Other Herbs, Phytochemicals And Supplements That Can Help During A Radiation Fallout
Various herbs and phytochemicals also help in protecting human cell exposure against the ionizing radiations from a nuclear fallout.
Such herbs include Gingko biloba, Centella asiatica, Hippophae rhamnoides, Ocimum sanctum, Panax ginseng, Podophyllum hexandrum, Amaranthus paniculatus, Emblica officinalis, Phyllanthus amarus, Piper longum, Tinospora cordifoila, Mentha arvensis, Mentha piperita, Syzygiu
m cumini, Zingiber officinale, Ageratum conyzoides, Aegle marmelos and Aphanamixis polystachya.
The polyphenols Quercetin, Resveratrol, Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) are potent radioprotectants.
Resveratrol is both a radioprotector in healthy tissue and also has antitumor activity. In animal models, resveratrol has been shown to protect chromosomes from radiation-induced damage.
The phytochemical Quercetin and its related compounds protect lipids and proteins from otherwise-lethal doses of gamma radiation, again largely through their antioxidant properties. Quercetin and the other mentioned polyphenols not only provide chromosomal radioprotection, but also shield mitochondrial DNA from radiation-induced oxidant damage. Quercetin also ameliorates biochemical changes in human white blood cells following radiation exposure.
The EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate, a polyphenol derived from green tea, also protects from whole-body radiation, blocking lipid oxidation and prolonging life span. Green tea extracts can protect rapidly reproducing cells in the intestine and hair follicles from the damaging effects of radiation therapy, a form of radiation exposure far more intense than typical computed tomography (CT) doses and one that more closely resembles the immediate effects of exposure to a nuclear war disaster.
Unknown to many, soybeans contain a wealth of health-promoting substances, among them several with remarkable radioprotective effects. Genistein, an isoflavone, was found to protect mice from ionizing radiation injury after a single dose.
One proposed mechanism is its protection against radiation-induced lipid peroxidation, which when unchecked disrupts cell membranes and structures.
The isoflavone genistein also stimulates production of red and white blood cells following whole-body radiation, again after as little as a single dose.
Blood stem cells in bone marrow are among the most vulnerable to radiation’s deadly effects. Because of its powerful induction of cytokines that stimulate new blood cell formation, genistein is under intensive study as a way to protect military and civilian personnel against a potential nuclear threat.
Interestingly, soybeans also contain a radioprotective enzyme inhibitor known as the Bowman-Birk inhibitor (BBI). BBI activates genes involved in DNA repair, making it among the most valuable compounds for preventing or mitigating the effects of radiation toxicity.
Bowman-Birk inhibitor (BBI) also stabilizes enzymes that would otherwise produce radiation-induced arrest of skin cell growth.
Importantly, BBI also enhances survival of healthy cells, but not diseased cells, following radiation exposure.
Interestingly, BBI survives processing in commercial soybean products (e.g., soy milk, soybean concentrate, and soy protein isolates), making it a highly accessible radioprotectant.
The supplement Melatonin was also found to protect dividing cells and circulating blood cells from chromosomal injury by radiation.
