Ivermectin #1 Search In Oklahoma, Selling Out In Stores
You see the steely gaze in the eye of Doctor Anonymous up there? He's judging Oklahoma right now. Just days after the the Oklahoma government and Federal Drug Administration gave their plead for people to stop taking veterinarian livestock de-wormer Ivermectin, the animal drug has become the #1 searched thing in the state and store shelves across almost every farm and ranch supply outlet are selling out of it.
If you're just now getting to the Ivermectin table, it's been a topic of the covid-19 discussion for about a year. You see, doctors in India saw it as a potential cure for the global disease, so they started providing a daily Ivermectin pill to citizens along with vitamins and advice to social distance and wear masks. After an initial explosion of cases, the numbers seemed to dwindle in one of the worlds most densely populated countries and Ivermectin was to thank for it... at least that's how it spread across social media. When the news made it to America, people almost instantly started eating and drinking over-the-counter veterinarian Ivermectin in the safety and secrecy of their own homes, but is it really a coronavirus wonder-drug?
It all stems from a blind medical study done about this drug in India. You see, when it comes to finding a cure, some countries will still just toss ideas and studies out to the people in that Tuskegee Experiment sort of way. As it actually turns out, when the study in India was concluded, the benefits of this drug were categorized as "marginal at best." Does that mean it doesn't work? No. Does THAT mean that it does work? No. With such a new disease, there's no way to tell what conclusively works in such a short amount of time. Just look at the rumor that people with O-type bloods don't catch the rona...
Personally, I think it will come down to some previously undiscovered DNA marker that will determine the effect this virus has on an individual, but unlike everyone else on Facebook, I'm not an expert on communicable diseases.
All the same, this is America. If you want to eat some Ivermectin paste for the sake of your own safety, you should be free to do so. Can it kill you? Yeah. Can it ruin you for the remainder of your life? Sure. Is that a personal decision you should be free to risk for yourself? Absolutely. It's no different than pounding dollar cheeseburgers and cheap hot dogs your whole life and keeling over at 52. In a stroke of dumb luck though, Ivermectin seem to be sold out in most locations, and removed from store shelves in others, so while you have the right to be reckless with your social media medical degree, you most likely won't have the opportunity.
