DENVER, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Japanese nuclear crisis has caused a surge in the demand of potassium iodide, causing shortages not only in Japan, but as far away as California, western Canada, and even southeastern Russia. Although potassium iodide does not provide generalized radiation protection because it only shields the thyroid, manufacturers and pharmacies are being bombarded with orders as the radiation hysteria mounts.
A new and superior product, known as the BioShield Radiation Pill, could restore calm to worried residents in affected areas. Scientists at Premier Micronutrient Corporation have developed this pill as the first ever that is proven to protect DNA from damage caused by radiation. The product was originally developed at the request of the Marine Corps after 9/11 to protect military personnel from the adverse effects of radiation they might encounter while fighting in the Middle East. Research conducted with the Department of Defense, NASA, and prominent universities has demonstrated effectiveness in addressing radiation-induced oxidative stress.
Dr. James Ehrlich was on the team that developed this groundbreaking pill. Invite this engaging and knowledgeable guest to answer:
- Should all residents near nuclear plants have the BioShield pill in case of a radiation emergency?
- Is this pill safe for young children?
- How does the BioShield pill work differently from potassium iodide?
- How long after exposure can this pill provide protective benefits?
- Is this pill available without a prescription?
