The 1973 NATO Handbook on the Medical Aspects of NBC Defensive Operations states that "Chelating agents, e.g., EDTA, if administered soon after exposure, are effective in enhancing the elimination of certain radioisotopes. These materials are not effective for radioisotopes which have been incorporated and fixed in organs and tissues, e.g., bone." (1,2) Thus, oral EDTA (and, perhaps, DMSA) should probably be taken immediately upon learning of potential radiation exposure.

Another substance one might keep around our house in case of accidental or deliberate nuclear exposure is Potassium Iodate. was used following public exposure from the radiation released from the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster to block uptake by the body of radioactive iodine (I-131). (3) Potassium Iodate is cheap, it stores well (in excess of ten years), and may not be available if/when it is needed. Potassium iodate should be taken only at the time of a nuclear emergency. Depending on the threat it may need to be taken for only 1 to 2 days, or up to several weeks or more in the case of a more severe exposure. For more comprehensive details follow the directions on the bottle or from your physician.

Chelation Oral EDTA Early clinical studies with EDTA reported loss of fat in rats, reduction of cholesterol in rabbits, and reduced blood pressure in humans.


Cconsidering the recent speculation that "suitcase nukes" or radiation-contaminated explosives may be loose in this country. We are now offering this somewhat hard-to-find supplement. We recommend putting it on the shelf until needed.

Just as many people keep band-aids and snake bite kits on hand for the possibility that they may need them, I think a family supply of Potassium iodate (and Oral ChelatoRx) is a good idea for a family first aid kit or medicine chest.
