Potassium iodide it can help reduce or block the absorption of radioactive iodine by the thyroid, thus protecting it from possible damage that can develop into a tumor. The effectiveness of potassium iodide in the event of a nuclear accident when used correctly can really make a difference especially if:
- The assumption will be timely (the sooner it is assumed, the longer the thyroid will have to pick it up and stock it up), ideally by 3-4 hours maximum ,
- exposure to radioactive iodine is minimized, for example by taking the necessary precautions following a nuclear accident.
In the event of a nuclear accident, how and when should it be hired?
It is recommended to do not take iodine unless suggested by the appropriate bodies , because the risk-benefit ratio may not be favorable if for example
- iodine 131, or the radioactive isotope, was not released,
- if the distance from the accident were such as not to constitute a direct risk.
