OT: Get Kelp

Kelp may be all that is available (and it is going fast) for iodine supplements to protect against radioactive iodine, which is supposed to arrive here on the West Coast from Japan today. Most pharmacies here are sold out of potassium iodide.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission_product#Iodine>
The most serious effects of radiation are to children, whose tissues are still developing. Us geezers will die from something else, before we can get cancer from the fall out.
Information and logic would seem to counsel us that the fall-out from Japan will be light, but the drama in Fukushima isn't over yet. A larger explosions, would send greater amounts of radiation.

This next is the referring page for the above, as I don't know if the above link is a static link for only that time, or realtime
http://www.zamg.ac.at/aktuell/ My german is not so... 'tisn't hard to figure out by clikking through.
Also http://www.radiationnetwork.com/ ...this site is great, imo, another of the wonders of the intertubes and citizen activism (read the message)...some monitors already in locations that just might interest you, old feller.

Goodly, and timely little piece of research there. Thank you.
Probably nothing for most Americans or Canadians to worry about, but some where, someone is going to pay, especially among those working on stabilizing the Fukushima power plant, now.

Meant to add... google "potassium iodide saturated solution radiation dosage drops" or such ....DIY for little cost.
Lugol's solution or DIY using crystaline KI, available from your favorite aquarium supply house or chemical distributor.
Window of effectiveness is small and critical and remember that KI is not effective against the other forms of long-lived radioactive isotopes....cesium, etc.
Looks like I am going to have to stock up on my Tillamook cheddars really soon....california, and west coast cow juice may begin to glow in the near future.

Yeah, but you'll be able to read by the glow of a glass of pure California cows milk. Think of the savings. One glass of milk should let you read at night for the next 150 years, at least ;O)

I'm hesitant to respond, to avoid the sadness of your departure, but what the hell, good to see you again:O) That's a Monaco font isn't it? Looks good on ya.

If I had decent sun, I'd try it. It would be great to pick your salad fresh. Seems like a good idea though, for people with sun. The house would also reflect warmth for the plants.

Sorry David. I don't know what I was thinking. It should have said. "Plant carrots in winter and you'll never have to eat carrots."
I didn't mean to go all hemisphilic on you. I have a little more class than that ;o)
Anyway, as you were, and so on and so forth.
How was the weather for you, this year? I know it was something horrible in Queensland, but how was it for you, and how's the harvest this year? -----
