As Japan declares a state of nuclear emergency today, the possibility of a nuclear fallout effecting the island increases. Due to wind patterns this fallout is a very real threat to those in North America, from Northern British Columbia to Middle California.
This morning newscasts were interviewing experts who are now saying it may not be a bad idea for people on the West coast to begin preparing for potential fallout reaching our beaches and well into mid-west Canada/USA. (see article here)
This is alarming to me because first off, we know they're covering up the true extent of the damage and potential damage to save face and keep everyone calm, and secondly this could have major consequences on the well-being of people even here in North America.
Aside from potassium iodide (if you don't know of it's benefits, please take time to research) what can one do to prepare for nuclear fallout? I can't imagine much, but that's what y'all are here for!
