What's potassium iodide?

Stockpiling of potassium iodide (KI) is highly recommended by health officials worldwide to prevent thyroid cancer of those exposed to radioactive iodine. Radioactive iodine is the predominant radioisotope released from a nuclear reactor accident or detonation of a nuclear weapon (due to nuclear fission) and can travel hundreds of miles downwind, such as it did after the Chernobyl accident.

How it works

The thyroid is the only part of the body that absorbs and stores iodine. By taking FDA Approved potassium iodide prior to exposure of radioactive iodine, your thyroid will become saturated with safe, stable iodine. This will prevent yourthyroid's absorption of any additional iodine (radioactive or not) long enough for the radioactive iodine inhaled or ingested to be safely dispersed through the kidneys. Outcome: No Thyroid Cancer

FDA Approved brands

IOSAT Potassium Iodide is the only FDA Approved full strength tablet available to the public. ThyroShield Potassium Iodide is the only FDA Approved liquid potassium iodide available to the public. Any non-FDA Approved brands of potassium iodide should be avoided.

    Press Releases

    54,000 potassium iodide pills donated to Japan for nuclear radiation exposure

    Mooresville, NC - March 15, 2011 -- Approximately 54,000 potassium iodide tablets have been donated by to Tokushukai Hospital in Tokyo, Japan for immediate distribution to those affected by Japan’s nuclear reactor crisis. This effort was facilitated by Dr. Alisa Suzuki Han, Radiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a teaching facility of Harvard Medical School, in Boston, MA. The radiation-blocking drug, currently in route to Japan, will be distributed by the Tokushukai Medical Aid Team. “We are very pleased that these tablets will be given to people directly affected by the nuclear crisis”, stated Troy Jones, President of, “The efforts of Dr. Han and the Tokushukai Medical Aid Team are a wonderful example of professionals coming together to ensure the health and livelihood of those most in need.”


    Kuwait purchases 5.4M doses of emergency nuclear radiation drug from

    Mooresville, NC - January 26, 2009 -- today announced the sale of 180,000 units (5.4 million doses) of ThyroShield™ Potassium Iodide to the Kuwait Ministry of Health. Worth approximately $1.4 million, the sale was brokered by and signifies Kuwait’s proactive course in protecting its citizens during a nuclear radiation emergency.
          “This sale is the first large-scale order of ThyroShield from a foreign government. We are currently working on additional potassium iodide orders from other countries in the Middle East, Europe and Asia.", said Troy Jones, President of "We hope the new U.S administration follows Kuwait’s lead and reinstates and expands the potassium iodide distribution plan to protect its citizens."
          ThyroShield™ Potassium Iodide Oral Solution is a ready-to-use, thyroid-blocking liquid medicine for radiation emergencies. Stockpiling of potassium iodide is recommended by health officials worldwide to prevent thyroid cancer in those exposed to radioactive iodine in the event of a nuclear reactor accident or fallout from a nuclear weapon. Potassium iodide protects against the harmful effects of radioactive iodine by preventing its absorption by the thyroid gland. Thyroid cells are the only cells in the human body that can absorb iodine, and are thus the only cells at risk for cancer.



    Homeland Security and KI :
      Congressman Markey blasts Nukepills Guidelines ...“The threat of nuclear terrorism is real and dangerous,” said Rep. Markey. “The draft guidelines do not yet reflect the seriousness of the threat, or encourage State and local governments to take advantage of a program aimed at helping them protect the health of those living near nuclear power plants from a release of radioactive iodine.”
         Letter to Sec. Tommy Thompson about Potassium Iodide..."The White House declared that KI [potassium iodide] was a 'crucial' drug..."
         Remarks on the need for potassium iodide made by Commission Chairman Nils Diaz of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on 11/10/2001..."use of potassium iodide pills would have significantly reduced the incidence of thyroid cancer [during Chernobyl]".

    Potassium Iodide administered with treatment of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma:
         The FDA approved drug, Bexxar (iodine I-131 tositumomab) is a therapeutic regimen for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Oncologist's administer a thyroid protective agent, such as 130 mg Iosat Potassium Iodide tablets, during treatment to prevent uptake by the thyroid of trace amounts of radioactive iodine (I-131). Expedited shipping is available for medical providers needing Potassium Iodide for use during this cancer treatment.
