People must stop this high consumption of salt. It's a nonsense spread by people that even heart-kindful trying to help people but it is utterly scientifically speaking groundless.  

Potassium iodide pill mitigates the effects of radiation poisoning but salt does not have enough iodine to combat the poisoning.

.

Not much paniced as in Japan. But there is a little panic for fear of radiation.
Many Chinese said they distrust Chinese government (in the news reports).
They said they have to protect themselves by their own knowledge, including food such as pork, milk, etc.

Panic-buying began in Tokyo after the tsunami, but has spread around the world because of fears of radiation leaks from the nuclear power reactors.

Russia saw a run on red wine and seaweed; in China people were buying massive amounts of salt, and chemists as far away as Bulgaria reported shortages of iodine tablets.

No matter how many scientists were wheeled out to reassure people that radiation levels outside Japan would not poe a threat to health, widespread distrust of official advice meant thousands placed more faith in rumours and old wives' tales.
