What is the role of iodine in a nuclear accident?

A nuclear accident released a large variety of radioactive elements, which is a major iodine-131. This product is the main danger of contamination in the short term. It volatilizes at a temperature slightly above 100° C, in the form of steam. Highly mobile, it spreads rapidly in the atmosphere, settles on the ground or on plants, is captured by the roots, ingested by the animal and eventually consumed by humans. Consideration of its high radioactivity, iodine-131 has a very short lifespan.

What are the stable iodine tablets?

Volatile, iodine-131 binds in the human body at the thyroid gland. This gland, located at the base of the neck, produces hormones that regulate metabolism. By ingesting tablets of stable iodine, radioactive iodine is prevented from settling in the gland, thus protecting against cancers of the thyroid. This type of prevention is particularly effective and necessary for children, in whom thyroid hormone plays a fundamental role in the growth and development.

Is it useful to take iodine in prevention?

The stable iodine tablets are taken on the orders of the authorities, not before, because their effectiveness is maximized if ingested two hours before the release of radioactive iodine. They remain effective for 24 hours. It is therefore unnecessary to take as a precaution.

Some dietary supplements sold in pharmacies contain iodine in very small quantities. If they are not dangerous, because iodine is a natural compound found especially in the salt, they are useless in this case.
