I was wondering if there are any known health risks associated with ingestion of the prussian blue to prevent radiation contamination?

How is the effect different from using Iodide?

What is the safest way to self administer radiation treatement and which substance?

Unless you have actually been contaminated with radioactive caesium (prussian blue) or radioactive iodine (Iodide), there's absolutely no point taking them.
They are not very toxic, but why bother?
