This is KIO3 (Potassium Iodate) Pronounced: Kay-Eye-Oh-Three

If there is a "nuclear event," and you are down-wind, you need to take KIO3 or KI before the radioactive plume reaches you.

If you do not have KIO3 or KI at the time of the event, then it is most likely too late to take a thyroid blocker unless the authorities can reach you with the proper dose during fallout conditions.

Both KIO3 and KI are thyroid blockers and are used world-wide to help prevent radioactive damage to the thyroid in the event of a nuclear incident.

If a nuclear bomb detonates or a nuclear power plant is compromised or has a melt-down, then radioactive iodine is always released into the air and environment.

Protects the thyroid

Radioactive Iodine (I-131) can destroy the thyroid of humans and animals. Even small amounts of I-131 can cause cancer of the thyroid. By taking KIO3 the thyroid becomes saturated with "good iodine" and cannot absorb the "bad iodine" I-131.
Yes, animals or pets can take KIO3 too.

KIO3 vs. KI There is no KIO3 vs KI--they both work-- however a reader on Survival Blog was wondering if KIO3 was FDA approved. KIO3 is FDA approved and a letter to the Survival Blog explained the survival points to the readers.

Here is the letter.
