The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, a compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered on or before the beginning of February.

The Federal Business Opportunities website shows a solicitation for "potassium iodide tablet, 65mg" in a package of 20 totaling 700,000 packages. These packages must be delivered "on or before February 1, 2014."

Potassium iodide and potassium iodate (a gentler, more stable form) help block radioactive iodine by way of absorption in the thyroid gland just like it would take up radioactive iodine, thus preventing thyroid uptake of radioactive iodine.

The ongoing crisis resulting from the destruction of the Fukushima nuclear power plant has led to a growing concern that this purchase may be directly tied to the potential threat posed by an increase in nuclear debris washing up on the west coast shores or in preparation of another natural disaster in Japan that could impact the United States.

"With recent reports of the crew aboard the USS Ronald Reagan suffering from horrible radiation poisoning symptoms, it seems reasonable to assume all is not as well as the Japanese Government would have the international community believe. One might wonder why it took these reporters to require reports of US naval officers experiencing uterine bleeding before the official narrative given by the Japanese government was questioned. Panic is usually avoided by keeping their citizens as blind to the truth as possible, until confrontation with the truth becomes inevitable."

"…(A)midst recent reports of dead marine life covering 98% of the seafloor in some areas, elevated radiation levels on the US west coast, and China's refusal to buy shellfish from US west coast bays suddenly," The West Wire writes. "The crucial question at this juncture; would our government be reluctant about warning us of potential disaster, in an attempt to avoid panic?"

"14 Million doses of Potassium Iodide say that might just be the case."
