However, there is a supplement called ConcenTrace Mineral Drops from Trace Minerals Research. This supplement contains Iodine (Iodide), but also Cesium and a whole host of other trace minerals which may be able to protect the body from nuclear radiation. (See the full ingredient list HERE.)
How does this work?
My father, who is a Chemical Engineer and who has been involved with Civil Defense for many years, has explained to me that if one ingests enough of a mineral - such as Iodine - from a supplement or a natural source, then the body (the thyroid, in the case of iodine) will be protected from absorbing Radioactive Iodine as it would already be saturated with enough and the rest would be 'expelled' from the body as waste.
Ionic Sea Minerals: ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops is a natural mineral concentrate. Due to the purity and concentration of this product, it is naturally preserved and contains no bacterial growth. The minerals do not lose potency over time. Also, contains no known allergens! This supplement is also very good for re-mineralizing your teeth. Just swish it around your mouth in some water, and then spit out when finished.
Begin regimen by taking 1/4 teaspoon (20 drops) for 3 consecutive days. Each day thereafter, increase dosage by 5 drops up to 1/2 teaspoon (40 drops) once or twice daily. Mix with any beverage or food at mealtimes to mask the concentrated mineral flavor followed by a glass of juice or water. Moderately increased dosages are safe if needed or desired, but larger amounts may cause a laxative effect.
The Laxative Effect -
This is an indication that you are at (or beyond) the level your body needs and there is no reason to increase the dosage past that point. I find that I do not even need the 'minimum' dosage of 1/4 tsp. to reach the laxative effect. I also find that this is not an undesired effect as it helps with constipation, and since at this time eliminating waste is very important to expel excess radioactive contaminants from the system, as mentioned above.
