Little Green Pill Hoax
It must have seemed like a good idea to someone at Greenpeace to leave mysterious green pills labeled "nuclear radiation pills" on the doorsteps of various Toronto homes. The homeowners panicked and called the police. The pills were actually seaweed tablets. Greenpeace had been hoping to raise awareness of a nuclear power plant being built in the area. [citynews.ca]

Wow. That is a really bad joke.Posted by Mike on Wed Apr 22, 2009 at 04:11 PM
Seaweed pills are radiation pills. They contain iodine, and taking iodine tablets prevents the thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine which might be released in a reactor accident, as it was in Chernobyl. Of course, that's the only kind of radiation they protect against.Posted by JKL in ATLANTA on Tue May 05, 2009 at 12:22 PM
