Official Homeland Security Website Fuels Increase in Anti-Radiation Pill Production
Castle Rock, Colorado Â February 24, 2003 Â The U.S. Department of Homeland SecurityÂs new website at http://www.ready.gov endorses the use of Potassium Iodide in the event of a nuclear blast. On the heels of CIA Director George TenetÂs testimony concerning security threats and Homeland SecurityÂs own decision to raise the national security level to Code Orange, READY.GOVÂs pronouncement caused further stockpiling last week of anti-radiation pills like No-Rad.(tm)
ÂWith the governmentÂs launch of their new preparedness website, public and retail consumption of No-Rad increased even more than the previous week, when the Code Orange level was first publicized,Â stated Scott Smith, Vice President of Corporate Development for Body Gold, LLC, the manufacturer and distributor of No-Rad. ÂPublic demand is increasing dramatically. As more information about the benefit of Potassium Iodide permeates public consciousness, more people want it. No-Rad is a preventative measure. If you wait until you need it, you wonÂt be able to get it,Â Smith continued. ÂWeÂre seeing that now and weÂve had to quadruple production to maintain inventory.Â
According to the United States government, the threat of a nuclear incident is greater now than ever before. Yossef Bodansky, one of the worldÂs foremost experts on al-Qaeda and author of ÂBin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on AmericaÂ recently reported bin LadenÂs acquisition of several nuclear suitcase bombs from Russian sources. Suitcase bombs, or Small Atomic Demolition Munitions (SADMs) have a destructive capability equal to one kiloton, or approximately one-thirteenth the destructive force of Hiroshima. In fact, U.S. intelligence forces are already aware that one or more of these nuclear suitcase bombs may be present in the United States. This was one of many contributing factors for the increase to Code Orange.
ÂThe government is intimately aware of the danger,Â Mark Owens, CEO of Body Gold recently stated. ÂWhy else would they contract for 1.5 million Potassium Iodide pills to provide to Postal Service employees? Why else would they offer free Potassium Iodide pills to residents in states near nuclear reactors? The answer is simple. The FDA has approved Potassium Iodide for use during a nuclear emergency and our No-Rad anti-radiation tablets each contain 65mg of Potassium Iodide. The public has the right to the same precautionary measures currently being employed by the US government and military. They have endorsed it on their Homeland Security website. They realize the health risks if youÂre caught without it.Â
