7 Uses For A Sun Oven (Other Than Cooking)


by Sara Tipton, Ready Nutrition:

Sun Ovens are a great addition to any prepper’s gear. In a previous article, we wrote extensively on how this is a must-have prep for your supplies. “If there is an emergency, there is a strong possibility that you may find yourself in a situation where you are off the grid. To prepare for this power interruption, the very basic preparedness plan should include considerations for fuel sources and alternative cooking tools for meal preparation. What many of us fail to realize is when our fuel supply runs out we are left without a way to quickly prepare food. The Sun Oven solves this issue by harnessing the power of the sun to cook.”

Not only can they be used to cook food, but there are several other ways you could use this prepper essential in an emergency situation when you don’t have access to modern power sources. When you only have the sun to rely on, this solar tool can be incredibly efficient at many very important tasks.

Natural remedies for heart health: Study finds pomegranate juice combined with propolis protects against heart attack


by Frances Bloomfield, Natural News:

Heart attacks, or acute myocardial infarctions, are among the leading causes of death, second only to cancer. Many of these heart events are preventable, however, and one of the best ways to avoid them is to adhere to a heart-healthy diet. Various foods are said to be good for one’s heart and, in the case of this study, can count in pomegranate juice and propolis, or bee glue. According to the researchers of this study, a combination of the two can indeed reduce the risk of heart attacks.

Power Grid Could Buckle During Extreme Heat Wave: Here’s How to Keep Cool

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The power grid in the US is old and tenuous, and with the current “heat dome” that has settled over the southwestern part of the country, the risk of demand outstripping supply is very real. High-temperature records were set in several states yesterday:

  • Death Valley, CA: 127
  • Las Vegas, NV: 112
  • Palm Springs, CA: 121
  • Phoenix, AZ: 116

A South Carolina Nuclear Fuel Plant Has Leaked Radioactive Pollution

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Radioactive uranium has leaked through the floor of the Westinghouse South Carolina nuclear fuel plant and contaminated the soil. The Westinghouse fuel factory on Bluff Road, located in Richland County, also has a nearly 35-year history of groundwater pollution from the plant.

The most conflicting part of the entire uranium leak is that officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said they have no reason to believe the uranium has trickled off the site or that public water supplies are threatened. But, the agency also said it does not have the results of recent groundwater tests on the Westinghouse property either, meaning they actually don’t really know what the extent of contamination could be. Those test results will show whether pollution in the soil washed into the area’s shallow groundwater, which seeps into creeks in the Congaree River floodplain.

Contrived Water Shortages Leading to World War III-50 American Cities Set to Run Out of Water

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

The world has been pushed to the edge of World War III, three times in recent history, in Ukraine, Syria and North Korea. President Trump has been able to avert the globalist goal of perpetrating World War III. However, the greatest threat to world peace does not come at the end of a gun, at least not initially. It comes from contrived water shortages. Contrived water shortages conceived by the globalists and perpetrated by the United Nations policies, are now the major reason why billions could die in the coming World War III.

Curcumin combined with boswellic acid scientifically shown to be a treatment for patients with osteoarthritis


by Edsel Cook, Natural News:

Boswellic acid and curcumin have been used on their own as natural treatments for various ailments. An Armenian study (see citation below) showed that the two natural medicines have excellent synergy – their combination can relieve the painful symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis weakens the cartilage and bones in the joints of aging people. The degenerative disease makes standing, walking, and other weight-bearing activities very difficult and painful for patients.

The pain and swelling can be mitigated by analgesics, cortisone, and NSAIDs. However, these pharmaceutical drugs have numerous negative side effects and might even be contraindicated for certain patients. They also do not stop the degenerative processes that undermine the joints in the first place.

An Oregon woman returned home to a bizarre sight: a mountain lion napping behind her sofa. Lauren Taylor posted about the event on social media, which took place July 8 in Ashland.

According to a post Taylor made on Facebook, after drinking from a pond in Taylor’s backyard, the cat likely entered her home through an open back door. The post had garnered more than 17,000 reactions and shares as of Tuesday morning.

Just one month of taking curcumin can dramatically reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s


by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

Turmeric is highly regarded as a spice, known for giving foods wonderful flavor and color. But the turmeric root is much more than a simple flavoring agent; this kitchen staple is gaining recognition as a powerful plant medicine and natural preventive. The scope of health benefits from turmeric and its medicinal capacity are still being realized, with scientists seemingly uncovering new uses and attributes of the orange-hued root at every turn. And now, new research has shown that turmeric can help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia as you age, and help keep your brain at its best as time trudges on.

While many people assume that cognitive decline is simply just a part of getting older, the truth is that it doesn’t have to be that way. Good nutrition and other tenets of a healthy lifestyle can help you maintain health and well-being as you age — and that includes your brain.

SELCO: What to Do If Unwanted People Show Up at Your Door When the SHTF


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

We all have worries about people that will show up at our doorstep when SHTF.

I am thinking here about family members or friends that we know will be problematic when they show up. Either they are complete burdens without any real values in a truly hard situation or they might even possibly be a danger for us.

So what do we do with those folks?

Son of Frankenstein? UK Body Backs Human Embryo Gene Editing

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

Though the announcement is couched in terms that make it seem humanitarian, as potentially a huge advance in science, an agency tied to the British government is encouraging efforts in gene-editing of the DNA of human embryos. It belongs in the category of eugenics. Not surprisingly, the footprints of Bill Gates and the Rockefeller eugenics circles, and major pharma groups as well as GMO seed companies are found here.

Following a well-placed article by Microsoft founder and major GMO supporter Bill Gates in the prestigious New York Council on Foreign Relations magazineForeign Affairs, strongly endorsing the development of so-called genetic editing, the UK’s Nuffield Council on Bioethics, a part Government-funded advisory body, has now released a report titled Genome Editing and Human Reproduction.

Extra virgin olive oil found to reverse many of the effects of a high-fat diet

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

Could olive oil be the ticket to reversing years of damage caused by a “conventional” Western diet? New research has shown that the beloved oil can help fight against some of the most harmful effects of a diet that’s high in bad fats and added sugars. It’s not a secret that the stereotypical “American” diet causes a host of diseases and conditions, like obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Insulin resistance and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease are two increasingly common side effects of the nutritionally bereft diet so common here in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Olive oil is a staple in many cuisines for its delightful flavor, and with so many health benefits, it is really an essential for every kitchen. Not all olive oil is created equally, however, and that’s important to keep in mind when selecting an oil.

How to Make Homemade Artisanal Jam Without Pectin


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Nothing is more of a summer tradition here at our house than making enough homemade jam from fresh fruit to see us through the winter. Get some fruit, some sugar, and a box of pectin and you’re good to go, right? Not so fast! You can actually make jam without pectin if you use my favorite old-fashioned methodof thickening your product. (Find this canning recipe and many more in my book, The Prepper’s Canning Guide.)

Notes of nuclear? Fukushima radioactivity found in California wine

from RT:

Radioactive levels are increasing in wine from California’s Napa Valley, thanks to the radioactive cloud that drifted from the Fukushima disaster in 2011.

Researchers from the University of Bordeaux Centre d’Études Nucléaires de Bordeaux-Gradignan (CNRS) in France tested California wine from before and after the Fukushima disaster and found there was double the amount of cesium-137 in its Cabernet Sauvignon after the 2011 tsunami caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors to leak.
