Welcome to the Community, mlm4363!

I hope that you are doing okay! I'm not a medical professional and not sure of your circumstance, but with all of the tragic events in Japan, I would like to offer you WebMD's Nuclear Meltdown in Japan: Radiation Risk? for some information on radiation exposure and prevention. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any valid information on the response of kelp iodine to radiation, so I would advise you speak with a medical professional before using this as a preventative.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing and take care!
