Bought this on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/iOSAT-Potass...-/182410653485

Found out from a .gov website that these pills never go bad.. even if they are well past an expiration date, potassium iodide is stable, basically forever.

If you don't know what you're talking about, don't give out advice. Dietary supplements do not contain the required amount of iodine for iodine prophylaxis.

I also wouldn't buy from that ebay seller, you have no idea what that really is. Anbex is the manufacturer, just buy direct from them and don't take a chance.

Correct, it took me a while to realize this. Always get the real stuff!

IOSTAT contains 130 mg of iodine per pill.

To take a random example easily available, NOW's kelp powder contains 1.35 mcg of iodine per mg. So to get 130 mg of iodine (130,000 mcg), you would need to consume 96,296 milligrams of kelp powder, which is 96.3 g or 3.4 ounces. An 8 ounce jar is going to give you only a little over 2 doses even if you can bring yourself to choke down that much kelp powder in one go and will cost you over $4 a dose. Plus it doesn't store all that well and will lose iodine to the atmosphere over time.

If you want iodine for radiation protection, buy the bloody pills.
