Potassium Iodide is the dietary source of iodine and the form found in iodized table salt. Potassium iodide is also given in large doses to people living in an area that had a recent, emergency nuclear fission accident. The Iodide is able to then protect the thyroid by the excretion of iodine rather than the radioactive iodine being taken up by the thyroid.
Most recently, Potassium Iodide has been administered to US troops within a 100 mile radius of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan.
