Registered Pharmacist Janet Beard says the pharmacy always keeps the supplement in stock, but this week her phone has been ringing off the hook. "We have seen a huge increase," she said.
It is not just consumers in Texoma that are showing interest in Harvest Drug's supply of Iodoral. "We have had emails and calls from pharmacists across the nation saying they are out and where can they get some," said Beard.
While the selling point this week is fears of radiation poisoning, Beard says there are many benefits to using the supplement such as promoting breast health and thyroid function.
Newschannel 6 wanted to know if folks were worried about the threat of radiation. Via facebook, Scott Nordstrom tells us "No, I am not. The risk of an explosion large enough to hit the jet stream to affect the United States is minute.
Jack Knox is not worried for himself, but he has many friends for which he is concerned. Knox lived in Japan in 2008, and is still in touch with people there. "These folks that we know that lived there, we've been in touch with, there is a lot of concern of their part still for the situation," he said.
Knox feels the risk of radiation reaching Texoma is so minimal, he will not be purchasing any supplements. "Anything right now would seem very premature to me," he said.
