    Profiteering in the wake of a natural disaster?

    I just read:

    'In the wake of the Japanese nuclear disaster, the hunt for
    Potassium Iodide, is on worldwide.
    The supplement helps offset the devastating health effects of
    radiation exposure, which could include the developing of
    Thyroid Cancer.
    Those companies who still have some of this product in stock
    have increased their price by up to 500%'

    Potassium Iodide is generally used in treating victims of nuclear accidents,
    it blocks the Thyroid gland's uptake of radioactive iodine.

    Greed . I guess they're not afraid of Karma.
    Today is a brand new day..another chance..a new beginning Hidden Content .

    When life is tough ask " What is it here to teach me?"
    Hurtful words can never be taken back, But there is always Forgiveness.

    So it would seem, but we know as they say "What goes around comes around" they will pay in the long run.

    A doctor/expert in radiation said it's useless to buy it, if and when there is a total meltdown then if we see levels here then take it. It can go off or lose effectiveness just sitting around.
