Our ancestors survived on it: Hardtack bread is a staple survival food with a long shelf-life

0

by Frances Bloomfield, Natural News:

Mention the phrase “survival food” and you’ll most likely think of foods sealed in #10 cans. Those are good and all, but the most they’ll last you are a few years. A true-blue survival food item is one that can last you the long haul, around a couple of decades or so. Impossible? Not at all. That’s something that hardtack can do.

What is hardtack?
The hardtack is a simple cracker or biscuit made from three ingredients: water, flour, and sometimes salt. This bare-bones recipe is a combination that’s seen countless men through military campaigns, land excursions, sea voyages. You could call it the big brother to MREs and C-rations because that’s what it was – up until World War I.

Best diet to heal cancer? Try the Budwig Diet, the meal plan that has been proven to work for more than 50 years

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

The Budwig diet has been around for more than 50 years — and it may be the best anti-cancer diet you’ve never heard of before. Developed by the late Dr. Johanna Budwig, an esteemed chemist from Germany and a 7-time Nobel prize nominee, the diet centers on two key health-boosting foods. Is that all it takes to cure cancer? According to Dr. Budwig’s protocol, it really can be that simple.

Dr. Budwig had a wide area of expertise; in addition to being a chemist, she also was a physicist, blood specialist, nutritionist and a leading cancer researcher. In the 1950’s, she reportedly worked for the German government, as an expert on nutrition and pharmaceuticals.

A Venezuelan Prepper Looks Back: “Things I Would Have Done Differently If I Knew What Was Coming”

by J.G. Martinez D., The Organic Prepper:

Having overcome a few personal incidents that rocked the boat these last few weeks, I want to write now about one of the most important experiences regarding the psychological aspect of prepping. Looking back as a Venezuelan prepper, there are things I would have done differently if I had fully known what was coming our way.

Enduring what we have gone through, even after having a proper approach to prepping, sort of conventional in a sense: gensets, water tanks, storage capacity, dry supplies for a few months, and other stuff, all of these are into the field of the conventional and regular prepping.

The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! Research finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.

A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the world’s most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment: the primary polyphenol in the ancient spice turmeric known as curcumin, has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer malignancy, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.

Compound found in green tea dissolves dangerous plaque found in blood vessels

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

Green tea already gets a lot of attention for its potential to fight cancer, but there’s another very important benefit that is making the beverage an even more attractive option than it already is. Scientists have found that a compound in green tea can dissolve the protein plaques in blood vessels that can cause heart attacks.

Scientists already know that EGCG, or epigallocatechin-3-gallate, a compound found in green tea, can reduce the amyloid plaques in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease. It turns out that this effect also carries over to blood vessels in general, and the life-saving potential of this discovery is huge.

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

by SurvivalWoman, via Lew Rockwell:

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.

GLOCK 26 Gen 5, Big Update for the Subcompact Pistol – Review

0

from Ammoland:

The Glock 26 Gen 5 is the newest iteration of the baby Glock.

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The Glock 26 Gen 5 has been out for some time now, but after nearly a year of ownership, about 1,000 rounds down range, and some modifications I feel I have gotten to know the sub-compact pistol rather well. While this isn’t my main squeeze when choosing a CCW, it does fill a role in between my ATEi Glock 19 and my TXT Custom Gunworks Glock 43. Even though it isn’t the gun I generally go for, the baby Glock still holds a prominent place in my safe and is shot far more often than my Glock 43.

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.

Living Off the Grid

by Robert Richardson, Off Grid Survival:

For some people living off the grid is more than a lifestyle; it’s a dream or a picture of a dream they are trying to attain. While the average everyday drone may call it strange, even try to paint offgridders as weird loners trying to escape responsibility, the truth is those who dream about going off the grid are anything but weird. And they are most definitely not trying to escape from life; they are trying to capture it and live it to its fullest.

In 1845, at the age of 28, Henry David Thoreau traveled to Walden Pond, Massachusetts where he built a simple cabin and began writing some of the most inspiring literature of our time. In his book Walden, he captured the essence of what so many are looking to find when they “go off the grid” when he wrote:

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).

What to Eat When the Power Goes Out

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.
