I went to nuclear medicine today for a thyroid scan. They gave me three pills of radioactive iodine to swallow. Before he gave them to me, he made me put on gloves so that I wouldn't touch them before I swallowed them. I asked why I had to wear the gloves.

He said "because they're radioactive".

but it's okay to ingest them?

The good news is that I think I'm going to mutate into something really cool - like Spiderman or something.

So, do you have to give the pills back?

The pills and radiation will be ejected via a natural means.

A really hot friend I had in college had to get a colon exam and they pumped like half a gallon of a radioactive iodine mix on her ass an hour before doing her the tests...

You should have kept one for later. Could be useful.

You can not touch them, but they can run through your gut. ?
