Mainly, cause I don't think she believed me...

Karen and I went to Perry for her fam picnic last weekend and she wasn't aware of the pills that are offered to residents nearby in case of a nuclear accident.  So, I have gathered the following information, because I can.

Potassium iodide pills can protect your thyroid from radiation exposure.
According to the Health Department's director of community and public health services, if the thyroid absorbs radioactive material, it can lead to thyroid cancer. The pill provides 24 hours of protection.
