I also read the risk of using potassium iodide tablets is not inconsequential. So if people take it when it's not needed, they can end up with allergic reactions or other negative personal results. It would only protect the thyroid at best but could also injure it for some people. One scientist said the biggest problem after Chernoble, other than those right on top of it, was drinking the milk from cows contaminated by it. I would guess that means any food items. So when it gets here in any size-- if it gets here in any size-- we can worry about it then. I grew up downstream from Hanford and they released iodine into the Columbia River. That wasn't so great for those playing in the river and with no clue of the risks. Thank you government.

I need to tell all of your something. My 19 yr old daughter and I moved to Valencia California in March 2010. Within 6 months my daughter was so sick from the water contamination in Valencia that we moved back to Florida for treatment. The water in LA and Valencia is not fit for drinking. It contains dangerous levels of hexavalent chromium, mercury, lead, arsenic its awful. At first we didn't know what was wrong with my daughter she was so violently ill all the time, then one day we saw a sign posted at Valencia by the mall that stated drinking the water could cause serious health affects. We went back to our apartment and discovered this same sign posted in the gym above water fountain, we then went to various hotels and apartments and this same sign is posted all over town. We contacted the State of California and the scientist there told us NOBODY in the entire state of California should DRINK, or take a SHOWER in CAlifornia water without a top notch water filter and even then it won't remove the Hexavalent Chromium!!!! Suffice to say people in California are delusional if they think the water is safe to bathe in, Cook in or drink! I have the proof if anyone would like the documentation. I even took bottles of the city water with me, when I left California in case I have to sue the state for my daughters doctor bills, which hasn't come to that so far, but as soon as she stopped drinking the water, she got better with treatment.
