The progression of nuclear activity within North Korea is mounting, with Kim Jong-un’s latest nuclear test marked as the largest of the series of six total tests. This latest, and most powerful, nuclear test created earthquake shock waves that reached as far as across the border of China and into an eastern sea port in Russia.
Such tests are not the only contributing actions from North Korea towards the immanency of war. One day after the country’s most powerful nuclear test took place, sources reported that, under the cover of night, an InterContinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was being relocated into a coastal position. An ICBM has a minimum range of 3,400 miles and is primarily used to perform the delivering of nuclear weapons.
Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, called for the council to exert the “strongest possible measures” on the nuclear nation during an emergency meeting with the UN Security Council, saying “enough is enough” and “our country’s patience is not unlimited”.
Although the United States may not want war, provocative measures are increasing, and a response will be necessary to break the worrying cycle. Jeffrey Feltmann, the political affairs chief to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said “Such a response must include wise and bold diplomacy to be effective”.
A national response to the movement being made overseas is coming closer with each passing day, but what about a response that can, and should, take place in every American household? Preparations can be made in within the walls of your own home to keep your family as safe as possible in the event of a nuclear attack.
Educate your family on the nature of a nuclear weapon and what the consequences of a nuclear attack are. Practice drills that can get your family to evacuate or relocate to a shelter in an amount of time that will make a difference in preserving their health when facing the aftermath of radiation and fallout after a nuclear explosion.
One method of preparation everyone should make (infants to elders alike!) is to have Thyrosafe, currently the only 65 mg potassium iodide tablet sold in the United States that meets the FDA requirements for use in a nuclear emergency, in every emergency kit, bug out bag and family survival kit.
As soon as an alert from public health officials is released, one should ingest Thyrosafe as soon as possible, following packaging instructions. Thyrosafe protects the thyroid against radioactive iodine released during a nuclear emergency. Pregnant women, infants, and young children are amongst the highest at risk for thyroid cancer due to radiation exposure. Do not overlook the opportunity to include a preventative product like this amongst the preparedness measures for you and your family!
