Iodine protection from nuclear fallout? Not always, warns the Health Ranger in science article debunking iodine myths
As the risk of nuclear war continues rising by the day, iodine myths abound on the internet. While iodine is very important for protecting your thyroid and other organs from iodine-131, a dangerous radionuclide, the zealous over-promotion of iodine has led many people to falsely believe that iodine can protect them from ALL forms of radiation.
Not only is that false, it’s also dangerous. In truth, iodine only protects from one radionuclide (iodine-131), which isn’t anywhere near the most dangerous radioactive element unleashed in a nuclear war or nuclear accident.
To help educate and inform consumers about iodine and its legitimate uses, I’ve put together this iodine science article on IODINE.news which explains iodine’s uses and limitations for nuclear fallout protection. As the Health Ranger, I’m the inventor of Cesium Eliminator, US Patent # 9526751, which eliminates radionuclides from the human digestive tract, so I’ve done a considerable amount of hands-on laboratory research involving elements with radioactive isotopes.
The article debunks several important iodine myths while explaining legitimate iodine uses. It also reveals seven surprising things most people don’t know about iodine.
I consider it a must-read article for anyone buying, stockpiling or consuming iodine as a preparedness strategy. Yes, iodine is very useful and has its proper place in every prepper’s list of items for nuclear events, but it’s not a magical bulletproof vest against radiation. Far from it…

DISCLAIMER: My online store, called the Health Ranger Store, sells nascent iodine as a dietary supplement. That’s why I’m so adamant that consumer know the full story on this supplement. I want people to use iodine safely and with full knowledge of its uses and limitations.
