Not meaning to be a purveyor of panic of doom and gloom, but I do have something to say.
First, I, personally, do not believe everything I hear. Me, and my children sat there, like sitting ducks when the Chernobyl cloud went over us. We lived up north, almost in a direct line from that cloud. No one really warned us or told us what to do. Possibly, as a consequence, my youngest child now has incurable cancer. Let me reiterate - we sat there like a bunch of stupid sheep, not knowing what to do.
Now, I realize most of the pundits are saying this won't affect us. Sounds good, and I pray that's the truth - who knows.
What I'm trying to say is this - check with your health department, doctor, pediatrician, ask what steps can be taken to protect your children, those whose thyroid glands are not fully developed yet. Yeah, I know they'll say, "don't worry, be happy," but the problem is your health and the health of your children is in the balance. There's still time, call around, find out, do not let your children suffer because you believed everything you heard.
Let me say in advance that I'm sorry to have to say this, and I only say this to spare someone, somewhere from the horrors that may be a possibility.
Sometimes I feel like John the Baptist.
