Hey, look what I found at the back of the medicine cabinet! Potassium Iodate tablets, for use as a prophylactic against radiation in the event of a nuclear accident. They were sent to every household in Ireland back in 2002, amid fears of a terrorist attack on the UK’s nuclear facilities just across the Irish Sea from us. I wonder how much use they would really be? Did anyone in another country receive such a thing, or even hear about it?
