    maven, I am in Hawaii, US

    Any idea how to buy “radiation grade” Prussian Blue, and what do you think of Prussian blue

    • 2011-04-13 at 23:34

      Hi steveo, hope this helps:
      “Prussian blue” is iron(III)-hexacyanoferrate(II) or Ferrocyanide, or ferric hexacyanoferrate(II).
      There is a German company which seems to be the only pharmaceutical supplier in the world who even, judging by German press reports, supplies the Japanese and US governments (the latter hoards a stash as a matter of course always – strange if these nuclear power stations are so ultra safe; but never mind).
      It’s called “Radiogardase”
      See also:
      Heyltex Corporation is the exclusive U.S. distributor of Radiogardase® (Prussian Blue insoluble capsules), the only FDA-approved drug to treat people who have been internally contaminated with radioactive cesium (Cs-137), which is manufactured by Heyl chem. pharm. Fabrik Berlin GmbH in Germany.
      Now, if you should not be able to get the pills, of which the manufacturer’s leaflet says one should take between 6 to 40 (!) capsules a day depending on Caesium exposure (it doesn’t help against Iodine) one could buy iron(III)-hexacyanoferrate(II) in any laboratory shop at e.g. “pro analysi” or “analytically pure” grade and then take reasonable amounts. One capsule contains half a gram active ingredient, i.e. 6 caps. are 3 grams, 40 are 20 grams. Mind: while practically insoluble, by certain chemical processes it can produce the lethal cyanic acid, so this is not an advice from my side but a statement of information given in good faith …

        Thanks Maven,
        I did find that same company yesterday and they provided me a pharmacy in California that will provide, but need prescription, I am going to ask my job provided “canned” health care provider to provide that prescription. 🙂 let you know how that turns out.
