Doubt the Kyushu volcano is related - that's VERY far away.

Conflicted nuclear reports. Me thinks someone is hiding info. The situation may be more grave than we think.

DALLAS No matter how small the possibility of radiation from Japan actually reaching the West Coast of the United States much less here in Texas but that hasn't stopped North Texans from pushing the panic button.

News 8 checked with several pharmacies on Wednesday and they are already out of stock of potassium iodide, which can protect the thyroid if there are toxic radiation levels present.

not saying it's fake, but something's not adding up

I know we will aid them to the best of our ability when able.

US is sending aircraft to evacuate Americans right now. Sad, sad, sad deal over there.

I'll bet those Texans were watching some news station that told them to be afraid of nuclear energy period. That's kind of funny though, yet kind of scary.


And get a load of this!

I actually don't think it's a bad idea to buy a couple of packs of IOSAT. They only cost $10 each and they have a shelf life of 7 years.

But anybody in the USA who is actually going to TAKE them now is an idiot. The pills can have very harmful effects and you shouldn't take them unless there is a legitimate reason to.

And anyone who is paying inflated prices is also a retard.

I ordered 2 packs from Anbex. $24 shipped. ETA is May. That's fine by me. By May either this whole thing will be over or there may actually be concern over a legit need for them. Either way they'll last for years and I'll put them in my emergency kit along with extra water, food, etc.
