No panic here about radiation

PotassiumIodideWhat with all the news about possible meltdowns of nuclear reactors in Japan, I have started to see local articles about potassium iodide, which can be a preventative for some types of radiation poisoning — articles,  for example, at UpNorthLive, and I noticed a similar one in the Petoskey paper.

Curious about us’ns here, I called River Pharmacy this afternoon to see what has been happening. It turns out that the pharmacy has had neither purchases nor inquiries about potassium iodide thus far, which is good news, because the local threat is virtually nonexistent, even if a full meltdown occurs.
