The surgeon general has not addressed the topic of fallout. She was caught making a statement saying KI pills are a good idea, and we should be prepared for possible fallout.
Just to clarify, I think she meant *having* Potassium Iodide pills in your possession in case you need them is a good idea... is a reasonable precaution. She didn't mean *taking* them now is a good idea.
The surgeon general back-pedaled from this statement actually at a press conference at UC Berkeley and at a Los Angeles hospital.
I've been following this message board almost since the beginning and it has been really informative. However, recently someone has been posting alarmist headlines without credible sources. Is this another one of them?
Go back to sleep.
