The pills will be distributed immediately to those who are affected by the nuclear reactor crisis. Potassium Iodide pills are said to be radiation-blocking drugs that could help people gain temporary immunity to radiation exposure.
The effort was spearheaded by Dr. Alisa Suzuki Han, a radiologist at the Bringham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching facility of the Harvard Medical School, in Boston, Massachusetts.
The president of Nukepills.com commended the efforts of Dr. Han to give Potassium Iodide pills for free, saying it’s “a wonderful example of professionals coming together to ensure the health and livelihood of the most in need.
Health officials worldwide recommend the stockpiling of potassium iodide pills to prevent thyroid cancer to those who are exposed to readioactive iodine in the event of a nuclear reactor meltdown or detonation a nuke bomb.
