WISE FOOD STORAGE TURNS OVER PURCHASE RECORDS TO GOVERNMENT AS PART OF SHOCKING CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT

from The Daily Sheeple:

class action lawsuit against Wise Company, a survival and emergency food storage company, was filed on February 15, 2017 for “unlawful, unfair, and deceptive advertising and business practices.” Last year, the company agreed to settle the suit, and is expected to announce the settlement on its website by the end of business today.

The class action, known as Miller v. Wise Company Inc., U.S. District Court, Central District of California, Case No. 5:17-cv-00616-JAK-PLA, alleges that on its website and packaging, Wise made misrepresentations and omitted material information about how long its Long-Term Food Kits would last and how many people they would feed. Customers who brought the case (the “Plaintiffs”) allege that as a result, “customers were induced to pay more for those products than  they otherwise would have.”

by Russel Davis, Natural News:

Taking vitamin D supplements during pregnancy can prevent the onset of autism spectrum disorder in children, a recent animal study showed. Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia say that pregnant mice who are given active vitamin D treatment during their equivalent first trimester bear offspring that do not not exhibit autism-related behaviors.

The study used a widely accepted model of autism in mice, which lists symptoms such as abnormal behavior and basic learning and social interaction deficits.

13 Steps to Prepare for Civil Unrest [UPDATED: Now 30 Steps]

NOTE: This article has been revised and updated for 2018.

BDS originally starting covering prepping for Civil Unrest years ago, but the threat of unrest remains and perhaps is heightened in the current political climate.

These are still uneasy times. The names and faces of the powers that be may be different but the actions are the same. Normal, ordinary middle class families are still struggling and corporate corruption, hidden agendas, and cover-ups are still commonplace.

The threat of an Ebola or other pandemic, global economic collapse, severe water shortages, and immigration/border woes simply add to our concern about the future. Fear, sickness, and deprivation evoke chaos, and as we reach that tipping point, it seems only prudent to prepare for civil unrest, riots, looting, crimes against persons, domestic terrorism, and more.

Sea buckthorn oil can promote liver health and decrease the storage of body fat

by Janine Acero, Natural News:

Lesser known fruits and plants have been gradually taking the spotlight in alternative medicine as natural remedies to various health conditions and improving overall nutrition. One study focused on sea buckthorn oil and how it can affect the body when added to a diet.

Fatty acids are primarily energy sources and membrane constituents for the human body. Although various food groups such as fish provide sufficient amounts of fatty acids, plant oils can simultaneously supply numerous regulatory and protective compounds like sterols, tocols, carotenoids, and lipophilic phenolics.

The REAL Reason Bottled Water Has An Expiration Date

by Sara Tipton, Ready Nutrition:

Bottled water is a popular item to store in case of an emergency, and for good reason. It is normally readily available and water should be able to be stored forever, right?  So then why is there an expiration date on bottled water?

Of course, water doesn’t expire, but you should still check the expiration date on the bottle before you drink it. According to Live Science, there a few different reasons why water bottles come with expiration dates, and the first one, you shouldn’t worry too much about, but the second one should make you think twice.

How CBD Oil Helped My Arthritis & Celiac Based Digestive Challenges

by Kathy Smart, Collective Evolution:

CBD oil. What is it? Why do we keep hearing about it? I’m going to share my personal experience with CBD oil as Holistic Nutritionist of the Year for Canada, and why it took the lead for me.

Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of cannabis or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana’s “high” is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Why Cast Iron is a Prepper Essential

0

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

There’s nothing better than a hard day in the winter of cutting wood than coming home at the end of the day with a Dutch oven sitting on top of your wood stove with elk cuts, carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, and garlic marinating in broth and seasoned up…hot and ready to eat. In the morning, just add some wood to the fire you banked, heat up the stove, and make a nice stack of pancakes on your cast iron griddle along with some eggs and bacon.

Cast iron is coming back into fashion in a lot of ways. Even in the cities, many people cook over a gas stove with cast iron cookware. Poisonous Teflon coating is avoided, as well as “Chinese Steel,” a term of yours truly to describe steel that appears to be stainless, but is not totally steel and is mixed with other metals. Aluminum is not good to cook with and high concentrations in the bloodstream are linked to Alzheimer’s in studies.

The top 10 best foods to grow for survival

0

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

When it comes to prepping, it’s always good to know about the best plants that you can grow in your garden or homestead. If you have access to your own produce, you can cross food off of the things that you have to think about when SHTF.

If a survival situation involves a long-term recovery event, your food and water supply may run out, unless you’ve stored at least several years’ worth of food in your stockpile. (h/t to SmartPrepperGear.com)

But this isn’t always possible for all preppers, so you have two options: You can resort to scavenging food or growing your own. The best option is to grow your own food, but this may sound daunting for those who don’t have any gardening experience.

Build your own first aid kit with natural remedies

by Tracey Watson, Natural News:

There is no doubt that many parts of the globe are in crisis, and to many it seems as though a natural or man-made disaster could strike in their area at any moment. While it is always important to have certain basic first aid items like Band-Aids and bandages on hand in case of emergency, there are other, more natural items that can prove to be worth their weight in gold when disaster strikes. After all, it may not always be possible to run out to a pharmacy or grocery store to purchase medical supplies.

Your natural first aid kit can be used effectively to treat a variety of conditions, including burns, cuts, Poison Ivy and other rashes, bug bites, stomach upset and diarrhea, bleeding and bruises, to name a few.

Some suggested survival kit items include:

EMP: An Elaborate Hoax or a Legitimate Threat?

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

As a prepper and avid reader of post-apocalyptic fiction like One Second After, Alas Babylon, and Going Home, an EMP has long been on my mind as one of the most catastrophic threats we could face.

After reading numerous reports from the Congressional EMP Commission, I figured that the reality of such a threat was a given. So when I recently wrote about making Faraday cages, imagine my surprise when I saw this comment:

What to Eat When the Power Goes Out

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When you’re in for some turbulent weather, do you head to the store with a list entitled, “Food for Power Outage?” Or do you already have a supply of food for power outages that you keep carefully hidden from your family? Many folks these days don’t have a way to cook when the power goes out, so that should be considered when creating your supply of the best foods for a power outage. If you don’t already have a stockpile of non-perishable food, it’s time to build one.

What to Eat When You’re Broke

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The lower your income is, the more difficult it is to be particular about what you feed your family.

This probably isn’t an earth-shattering revelation to anyone, but if you feel like experimenting, try to buy a week’s worth of healthy food for a family on a budget of, say, $50-75.  Food manufacturers that target lower-income shoppers with more affordable products tend to include more GMOs and toxic ingredients in their offerings.

Sometimes, it just isn’t possible to stick to my usual food restrictions.  Generally speaking, I avoid:

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising…

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.
