MutantDaisys is campaigning for mandatory distribution of Potassium Iodide tablets for all residents living within a 50 mile radius of every Nuclear power station within the United Kingdom. Once we have achieved this goal we want to expand the catchment area further to incorporate all residents living with a 50 miles radius of every Nuclear power station in the world.
Currently, the Nuclear industry in the UK only provides Potassium Iodide tablets to all residents living within a 1.5 mile radius of any given Nuclear power plant. This is nothing more than a token inadequate gesture given that the exclusion zone at Chernobyl incorporates a 50 mile radius.
The campaign aims to serve three main purposes:
1) To raise awareness of the dangers and consequences on public health posed by Nuclear power, hopefully stimulating organic thought and education on the subject leading to the public questioning the safety of Nuclear power.
2) To expose just how unprepared the country (and the rest of the World) is in the event of a Nuclear emergency at any one of our Nuclear power stations, highlighting the inept emergency and contingency plans that are the responsibility of the Government and the UK Nuclear Industry. This is also designed to provoke thought and questions at just why the UK is so unprepared, and showcase how the authorities are playing ‘Nuclear Russian Roulette’ with public safety by continuing to produce power from our aging fleet of Nuclear reactors.
3) To get mandatory distribution of Potassium Iodide tablets to all residents living within a 50 mile radius of all Nuclear power stations in the UK. This goal is still a very conservative one, given that radiation fallout has been proven to travel hundreds of miles from Fukushima and Chernobyl respectively. Radiation has no consideration for borders. The project will eventually grow to incorporate ALL Nuclear power stations worldwide.
What are Potassium Iodide tablets?
Tablets of potassium iodide are supplied for emergency purposes and are distributed to the public during a Nuclear power station emergency incident or meltdown. Potassium Iodide tablets are related to the blockade of radioiodine uptake, a common form of radiation poisoning due to environmental contamination by the short-lived fission product iodine-131 released from Nuclear power stations.
The following testimony has been provided by Dr Helen Caldicott, winner of the Nobel peace prize, to MutantDaisys on behalf of The Potassium Iodide Project:
“It is absolutely imperative that every household within a 50 mile radius of a nuclear power reactor be supplied with inert potassium iodide tablets to be taken in the event of an accident and major release of radiation, BEFORE the radioactive cloud immerses buildings and people. The tablet will then block the uptake of radioactive iodine by the thyroid gland.
One dose is sufficient.
This will also alert the general population about the horrific dangers of nuclear power. Furthermore there will be several hundred other radioactive elements released during a major accident and there is absolutely no protection against any of these entering the human body.”
-Dr Helen Caldicott
MutantDaisys is a non-for-profit awareness cause aiming to educate and inform the public about the realities of Nuclear power production, and to highlight the impact and consequences of radiation exposure to humans and the environment after a Nuclear power station criticality event, such as Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi.
Please help us achieve our goal, and enable us to continue to push for greater clarity, understanding and education of Nuclear power related issues. Your help and support is crucial to helping us achieve our ambitions. We wish to help humanity, ensuring that future generations get to enjoy the wonderful world that we call home for many more years to come.
