Potassium iodine tablets are best, but if they’re not available this is the next best thing.
From what I researched and learned from a local doctor friend who was
a pathologist for many years and was a young intern that went to help
radiation victims in Hiroshima and/or Nagasaki, those recommendations
are valid.

I'd like to add that the iodine tincture mentioned is not going to be as
easily available as Betadine solution. Anyone can search for the Betadine
solution for this kind of application to the abdomen for how many ml of
x% solution (like 10%) should be brushed on the abdomen of a certain
area. Adults, children and babies are obviously going to have different

Cheapest way to buy spirulina is in bulk powder and so is chlorella.
AFA may be better (aphanizomenon flos aquae - blue green algae).
These algae's are natural chelators with a lot of benefits on the nutritional
side of things. The cheapest way to get miso soup isn't the freeze dried
instant packets. Get it in the big bags of paste - taste the best too.

Anyway, I don't want to get off topic here but these posts on this topic
may be more useful and more on topic in the Fukushima or other related
threads - just a thought.
