Miracle 2 of Utah's potassium iodate is arranged for a photograph in Mapleton, Utah, U.S., on Wednesday, March 16, 2011. U.S. lawmakers want federal authorities to expand the availability of potassium iodide to protect people who live near nuclear power plants from the cancer-causing effects of radiation.
