Why Did Obama Give The Order For 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.

According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.

Potassium iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Under current regulations, states with populations living within 10 miles of a nuclear plant are encouraged, but not required, to maintain a supply of potassium iodide.

A search of the FedBizOpps website returns no other results regarding the purchase of potassium iodide from any government agency, suggesting that the DHHS bulk buy of the tablets is unprecedented in recent times.

The ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant has prompted concerns that the purchase is connected to the threat posed by radioactive debris washing up on the shores of the west coast or the potential for another natural disaster occurring in Japan which could impact the U.S.

“Governments usually respond to disasters very similarly; first move is to avoid panic,” writes The West Wire. “The Japanese didn’t want to panic the world, or tarnish their honor and now, as a consequence of their reluctance, Japanese citizens and international aid personal find themselves in a horrible state of being.”

“Panic is usually avoided by keeping their citizens as blind to the truth as possible, until confrontation with the truth becomes inevitable. The crucial question at this juncture; “would our government be reluctant about warning us of potential disaster, in an attempt to avoid panic?” 14 million doses of Potassium Iodide say that might just be the case.”

Last month it was revealed that 71 U.S. sailors who helped during the initial Fukushima relief efforts are suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) after they returned with thyroid cancer, Leukemia, and brain tumors as a result of being exposed to radiation at 300 times the safe level.

TEPCO has repeatedly been caught lying in their efforts to downplay the scale of the disaster. In September it was confirmed that radiation readings around the power plant were 18 times higher than previously reported by TEPCO. After a tank leaked 300 tonnes of toxic water in August, groundwater radiation readings at the plant soared to 400,000 becquerels per litre, the highest reading since the nuclear accident occurred in March 2011.

Top scientists have warned that if another major earthquake hits Fukushima, which is almost inevitable, it would mean “bye bye Japan” and the complete evacuation of the west coast of North America.

Now that radioactive debris is hitting the West Coast of North America, numerous different animals and sea life are suffering from mysterious diseases, including 20 bald eagles that have died in Utah over the last few weeks alone. source – InfoWars

      And yet mainstream media will not talk about the problem and the government says everything is fine. For them maybe with all those Iodine pills they are ordering and probably heading to their caves with their dosages….smh….what a bunch of DEMONS

    • WeBeDoomed

      Not sure what the potassium iodide would be for as I-131 has a half-life of 8 hours and in the nearly 3 years since the Fukushima disaster all of that will have long decayed away. The ex-core criticality referred to in other articles would not generate any where near the levels from an operating (or recently operating reactor). Any experts on here have any ideas :eek:

      • True News

        Cesium, strontium and other radioisotopes are being released. The thyroid gland is most susceptible to radioactive “fallout” like this from Fukushima. The potassium iodide floods the thyroid, so the gland can’t absorb any of these other materials.

        • WeBeDoomed

          Thanks for the reply Chris but from my reading the thyroid is only susceptible to iodine. I have further read that strontium collects in bone structure replacing calcium :shock: This potassium iodide would be no use against caesium or strontium and as I said there really isn’t any I-131 left

        • notonetobefooled

          Look into Bentonite Clay as well. It also aids in the removal of harmful radiation in the body. A lot of cancer patients use it to cleanse there bodies after chemotherapy.

    • Fleendar the Magnificent

      Why? For the same reason I ordered a huge number for my family. Fukushima and the pending new disaster when pool #4 drains ABOVE ground. :mrgreen:

    • shock an awe

      So why are taxpayers subsidising the government. They say there is no problem.?Just smile

    • Neo

      Perfect opportunity for a dose of their own medicine

    • KnowMoreThanYou

      On a side note, If most alternative media sites claim the depopulation plan, why would they be ordering this? Just for the few to be saved…? Although it sounds like a large order it is not enough for everyone. Maybe they are just going to hoard it so others cannot get it!!! I am so glad I moved to the Southern Hemisphere 15 years ago!! :lol:

        I read an article this morning, and it stated they asked the government why they ordered the iodine tabs, and they hung up on them. They use to hand out iodine tabs to communities that lived near nuclear power plants.

        Anyway, the Gov is stocked up on bullets, and iodine tabs now, and although they use tax payer money they do not have to answer to anyone…….This is what the Nazi gestapo Storm Troopers did, and then they got so paranoid, they fired a lot of Generals/top Military officials, sound familiar?

    • Egail2

      Just like the 3 million+ guillotines right….
      Yawn. More FP from BIN.

      Also good point WeBeDoomed

    • Veriton

      The “elite” are planning to use Fukushima to panic the public during the currency reset:

    • AndreyE

      He cares. That’s why. Maybe not so much satan everytime. Maybe sometimes he wants to think of himself as a white angel. Go figure those pedophiles.

    • Call It Like It Is...

      Too little Too LATE…

    • Neanderthal

      it made money for the pharmaceuticals who funded his campaign. Pay attention son
