    Potassium Iodine

    Tracker, I have thought about adding Potassium Iodide or Potassium Iodate to my disaster supplies, but I've read some conflicting information about them. I read a portion of a book by G. Gordon Liddy that said that one of these compounds (or perhaps both) weren't recommended for persons over the age of 40. If true, while it could benefit others, it would be no good for me. I hope that's not right. Must investigate further.

    How does it work?

    QuikClot® hemostatic agent is a molecular sieve, sifting molecules by size. When QuikClot® comes into contact with blood in and around a wound, it rapidly takes in the smaller water molecules from the blood. The larger platelet and clotting factor molecules remain in the wound in a highly concentrated form. This promotes extremely rapid natural clotting and prevents severe blood loss. Additionally, the nano-engineered particles provide key surface chemistry, rapidly enhancing the body's natural coagulation process. The process represents a new approach to hemostasis, which typically involves adding clotting factors rather than extracting elements to halt bleeding.

    HUH we need to look into this more, i thought it was simply a coagulant chemical which causes clotting.

    Will do some research

    REALLY? How could it hurt, if you have unctrolled bleeding in the field you MUST stop it at all costs, don't you agree?
