What to do about radioactive fallout?Submitted by dailypauler on Sun, 04/10/2011 - 21:36
Wanna get those pesky radioactive isotopes out of your house? Just sprinkle on a little "Nuke Away".
This reminds me of an old episode of Mork and Mindy. One day Mindy mentioned to Mork about the dangers of radioactive fallout. Mork replied, "No big deal, if it comes, you just sprinkle on a little Nuke Away" motioning like he's sprinkling some Ajax. She said "Well we don't have that here"! Mork then stopped and said, "Well what do you do"? Mindy said "nothing". Mork's face then looked extremely puzzled and terribly concerned.
Well today we do have a product similar to Nuke Away. I don't know much about it, but I've found it is cheap, in abundance, effective in water purification and absorbing radioactive particles and it is used in the nuclear industry for that purpose.
Anyways I thought this info was worthy of posting and maybe having some DPers look into it. Its called "Zeolite" and reminds me of a borax like substance. Internet search it. We might have something very important here.
