KEARNY'S NUCLEAR WAR SURVIVAL SKILLS REVISED 1987: Highly acclaimed book by Cresson H. Kearny Oak Ridge National Laboratory (US Department of Energy) 1979 & 1987. This is the definitive "bible" of information (recognized and published by the US government!) relating to how anyone who desires can prepare him/herself and loved ones against the ever-increasing threat of nuclear disasters - be they accidents or warfare.
Among a myriad of other topics Kearny gives explicit instructions on how to use the chemical compound Potassium Iodide (KI) to protect your thyroid against radioactive iodines released into the air in nuclear incidents. Here is an excerpt from the book touching on this matter:
"There is no medicine that will effectively prevent nuclear radiations from damaging the human body cells that they strike. However a salt of the elements potassium and iodine taken orally even in very small quantities 1/2 hour to 1 day before radioactive iodines are swallowed or inhaled prevents about 99% of the damage to the thyroid gland that otherwise would result. The thyroid gland readily absorbs both non-radioactive and radioactive iodine and normally it retains much of this element in either or both forms. When ordinary non-radioactive iodine is made available in the blood for absorption by the thyroid gland before any radioactive iodine is made available the gland will absorb and retain so much that it becomes saturated with non-radioactive iodine. When saturated the thyroid can absorb only about l% as much additional iodine including radioactive forms that later may become available in the blood: then it is said to be blocked." page 111 Nuclear War Survival Skills Cresson H. Kearny.
