Nuclear?

Well, in my reading and link-following, I find that some people are concerned about/ prepping for nuclear fallout. Without judging or neglecting, I thought I'd mention it.

To see if you are within range of an American nuclear plant, click here.

Evidentally all you can do is stay inside for two weeks, and eat iodine. From the website:

"One of the most feared consequences of a nuclear reactor accident or nuclear bomb is the release of a radioactive iodine plume into the environment. Radioactive Iodine (I-131) is a by-product of nuclear fission which occurs only within a nuclear reactor or during detonation of a nuclear bomb. What makes radioactive iodine so dangerous is that the body cannot distinguish it from ordinary iodine. As a result, if swallowed (in contaminated food or water), or inhaled (it can remain in the atmosphere for days), it will be absorbed into the thyroid gland (only the thyroid absorbs iodine) and may lead to thyroid cancer, especially in children."

For $10 a pack, and $30 for a meter, you can cross that off your list.
