Did the pole before reading what you posted

I've got polar pure bottles for treating water in a pinch

Not sure what the amount of iodine that gets passed through when treating water to drink

From what I have read it doesn’t matter. You can take the pills and crush them and drink it. It’s the dosage or concentration. So look at the liquid and see what the breakdown is to get 130mg.

It’s recommended it be Potassium Iodine for radiation protection.

It's not just the retired folk that were amused by that! :ROFLMAO:

At least the gay isn't confined to the trivia thread anymore!
