IOSAT - Hot item at Survival Superstore

Pin It
This summer, we have seen an increase in people purchasing the iOSAT tablets.  

iOSAT was developed by ANBEX in 1979 following the meltdown at Three Mile Island nuclear plant.  iOSAT was developed for the purpose of protecting people from accidental or terrorist-related release of radioactive iodine from  nuclear power plants or from nuclear weapons. 

In 1982, iOSAT was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and it is known today as the only full-strength tablet which may legally be sold in the US for preventing radiation blocking. 

According to ANBEX, the value of Potassium Iodine in preventing radiation blocking has been known to man as early as the 1950's.

"Development. The value of KI as a radiation protective was first recognized in 1954 following a Pacific nuclear bomb test. Shifting winds blew radioactive fallout in an unexpected direction, contaminating two small atolls 150 miles away. Although residents were quickly evacuated, it was too late. Within 20 years, most of the island's adult population, and all of its children, had developed some form of thyroid disease or cancer.
"Doctors studying the problem soon realized that radioactive iodine in the fallout had entered the island's food and water supplies. It had been inhaled and ingested by the islanders and absorbed by their thyroid glands. Over the years it led to the steady, inevitable, development of cancer and other thyroid malfunctions. While the fallout had contained traces of other radioactive products, these had played little or no role.
"This understanding led experts to speculate that much of the danger from radiation might be eliminated if the absorption of radioiodine by the thyroid gland could be blocked. As a result, a search began for a class of drugs that later became known as 'thyroid blocking agents.'
"By 1957, scientists had concluded that potassium iodide represented an ideal thyroid blocking agent. This material had been used for years in other therapies, was known to be extremely safe, inexpensive, had a long shelf life, and could prevent 99% of the radioactive iodine in fallout from being absorbed." -from ANBEX website
