US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide: Is The Government Stockpiling In Preparation for Fukushima Meltdown?

Anthony Gucciardi

Govt purchase of 14 million iodine doses factors to silent Fukushima disaster planning.

Following the exposure that The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million dosages of potassium iodide to be available by no later than the first of Feb, it is easy to see that the same federal government accountable for silently increasing the allowable limits of now in the food and turning off key radiation surfaces in the west coast may now quietly be planning for a upcoming Fukushima meltdown.

US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide Is The Government Stockpiling In Preparation for Fukushima Meltdown

The same type of Fukushima plant meltdown that has been predicted by leading scientists, such as those who spoke out against Fukushima’s dangers while attending the scientific symposium at the University of Alberta just a few months ago. Scientists like David Suzuki went on record in stating that Fukushima is just an earthquake away from devastating Japan and swallowing other nations with its radioactive fallout.

During the conference, Suzuki said:

“I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it’s bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate.”

And Suzuki is not the only one with major concerns. In fact, Suzuki is perhaps one of the very few who actually received media attention due to his celebrity status as a recipient of 16 significant academic awards and host of the popular CBC Television program entitled ‘The Nature of Things’. Yale University professor Charles Perrow has voiced similar concerns in a telling piece entitled ‘Fukushima Forever’, which highlights the very serious threat of nuclear meltdown as a result of human error when it comes to removing the plant’s spent fuel rods.

A danger that the United States government certainly recognizes as legitimate based on the analysis of top experts, and undoubtedly is silently preparing for behind the scenes.

Perrow writes:

Much more serious is the danger that the spent fuel rod pool at the top of the nuclear plant number four will collapse in a storm or an earthquake, or in a failed attempt to carefully remove each of the 1,535 rods and safely transport them to the common storage pool 50 meters away. Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.

And silently stockpiling iodine is certainly the way that The Department of Health and Human Services would prepare for such an event. As of this morning, a government source has told me that this purchase is indeed bizarre given the quantity and delivery time frame (requiring a whopping 14 million doses by February 1st), and it goes alongside preparations we have seen in the past where the official response will likely play off the mega purchase as a ‘routine bulk acquisition with no real urgency or threat’.

The reality is that even getting a hold of low quality potassium iodide, which I would not ever personally take over a higher quality form of pure iodine, is becoming difficult as the population becomes aware of Fukushima’s expansive dangers. Many manufacturers are now stockpiling raw iodine and holding on to the element as a form of investment with the knowledge that Fukushima may very well meltdown in the coming months. For this reason, we have had a very hard time securing our nascent iodine formula that many in the field of preparedness have been stockpiling for quite some time.

    Informed Americans know & have been saying that Fukushima is the greatest nuclear threat in the world – certainly not Iran. Nuclear experts insist that the danger to the entire Northern Hemisphere is enormous & imminent. Americans can take comfort in that the Japanese government has recently begun hiring homeless people to clean up the site around Fukushima. And just as ridiculous as this is, the United States government has & is doing nothing to help mitigate the impendingn disaster. Also, just as the federal government has over the years reduced the standards for public education to present the illusion of improvement to the system , the government has increased the maximum allowable amout of exposure to radiation and shut off radiation detectors to hide the nature & extent of the problem from the American people. This practice is akin to the government refusing to test the nations beef for Mad Cow Disease but claiming American beef is safe to eat or approving genetically modified ingredients to enter the food chain and fighting the labelling of those ingredients on the packages. It’s laughable that vending machine companies may be required to label the number of calories next to each items, but yet there is & will not be any requirement to label the poisons that the ngovernment has approved for the nation’s food supply. So consider that the government’s order of 14 million doses of potassium iodide is not enough to treat the illegal alien population in the US who are not required to have or purchase health insurance.
