Just a few days ago, they were talking about the
nuclear plants over in Japan and the damage it will
do to the air for those who live there… And the precautions
they are taking. Where it is serious..
Then of course the National news got on the band wagon,
and talked about the air detectors on the West Coast and
the possibilities of the nuclear pollution be in our air.
The scientist who work with these detectors said the likely
hood of us being harmed by the air was at a low minimum
at best. .
And he was talking about Seattle (the one they interviewed
are at the Washington coast as there are several up and down
the whole west coast.)
Then someone mention the use of Potassium Iodide, is what would
help your thyroid IF.. that is IF… the air were to be polluted. Again
talking about the west coast. So what are the possibilities of it getting
to Spokane and the inland northwest.. Well, if the scientist is correct
about the Seattle area being low minimum at best…you know Spokane
and the northwest area is going to be 1 to zero percent of getting it..
But that doesn’t stop the Chicken Little’s of our area… Every health
store is sold out of the Potassium Iodide. Even with the health departments
warning, that taking it could be more harmful than the nuclear air.
People tend to take too much of such things.. plus it is not a pill that
is to be taken for any length of time.
The scientist across the nation are saying by the time it gets to
the good old USA… that a chest X-rays would do more harm
than this radiation the people are worried about.
Don’t people listen when they talk about the low chance of it even
getting here? Don’t they listen when they say an X-ray would do
Oh, well, the pharmacy and health stores will have a profit this
Week. Good for commerce. And the pendulum once again swings
