Radiation antidote to be readily available ..a vitamin pill ???

Two things; 1) article acknowledges troops are more and more exposed to radiation and 2) an antidotal vitamin pill to counteract radiation! Right! Let's get out those goggles from the 1950s, used to protect against atomic explosions, and let's get under our school desks to protect us from atomic fallout.

How many casualties will we have when the radiated troops return home? And what of the radiated Iraqi people? Election and freedom and "democracy" don't serve too well against the fierce foe of radiation. My God, what has our country done!? What has this administration released on us all?

Radiation antidote to be readily available

A simple vitamin pill soon may be part of the American military arsenal.
The Defense Department has joined forces with Humanetics, a Minneapolis-based nutritional-supplement manufacturer, to refine an over-the-counter, anti-radiation pill that may be ready by year's end, one source said Tuesday.
Described as a "radioprotective drug," the mystery pill is meant to be a practical, cheap antidote for millions in the event of nuclear attack.
"The chances of military or civilian personnel being exposed to dirty bombs or improvised nuclear devices have risen dramatically," said Mark H. Whitnall, director of the Radiation Casualty Management Team at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute in Bethesda.
