We’re literally eating toxins: Western diets INCREASE the risk of food poisoning from Listeria

0

by Ralph Flores, Natural News:

Researchers from the University College Cork made a startling discovery: Western diets – a diet comprising empty carbs, junk food, red meats, and foods high in saturated fat – can increase the risk of being infected by the foodborne pathogen, Listeria monocytogenes.  In their report, which appeared in the most recent edition of Microbiome, the scientists revealed that high-fat diets such as the Western diet can impair the ability of the immune system to fight infectious diseases, especially those that are found in the gut like Listeria.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Now that most of the country is practicing social isolation, people are turning more and more often to their pantries to make meals from shelf-stable ingredients.

Do you ever wonder what on earth you’d eat if you had to rely solely on the items in your pantry? How could you possibly make tasty meals from these items you have stashed away? Do you imagine a future filled with cans of Spaghetti-O’s and saltine crackers?

Trust me when I tell you, you can do much better than that. Here’s a menu that you can adjust to your family’s preferences.

Prayer Before You Prepare

by C.H., Survival Blog:

My first memory of SurvivalBlog is reading the Rawlesian precepts, almost a decade years ago. I remember quickly hurrying over to the ‘Quick Start Guide’ to find out where I should begin. It was there that I read the most important piece of advice for any prepper: “Before you begin to prepare, pray.”

Unfortunately, I thought that this meant little more than a salutary ‘tipping of the hat’ toward heaven before starting out on whatever I thought was best. ‘Do your best, pray it’s blessed, and let God do the rest.’ So I asked the Lord for his blessing and guidance, without really expecting any answer. And then I set forth.  I looked for a job in the American Redoubt, began stockpiling guns, ammo, and precious metals. I read any material on prepping I could find. I devoured books and scoured the Internet. I kept a close eye on the news for any hints on what to get ready for.

The state of California has tested ZERO people for coronavirus… all testing done by the CDC, which has so far tested fewer than 200 Californians IN TOTAL

0

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

On the “Immunization Branch” page of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) website, the admission is made that a total of zero people have actually been tested for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) because all of the testing is being done at the federal level by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And thus far, a total of less than 200 people in California have even been tested by the CDC, meaning the true number of cases remains largely a mystery.

Lessons Learned in Our Orchard

by C.D., Survival Blog:

Background: We bought our homestead in November, 2012. At the time we lived in the same area but in a neighborhood with protective covenants on a half acre lot. We found we weren’t able to do the things we needed and wanted to do in order to be resilient no matter what the economic or natural environment threw us. The property we moved to was about 5 acres with plenty of room to incorporate an orchard. I had pre-ordered a number of fruit trees and had prepared the ground to plant them in our old yard. They arrived after right before our move and we quickly needed to get them into the ground in our new property. We have learned many things in the seven years since we planted our first fruit trees. Our hope is that you may benefit from our mistakes and decide to grow a fruit tree or two — or many.

Think the Government Will Save You? Puerto Ricans Find Warehouse FULL of Emergency Supplies Stashed Since Hurricane Maria

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

If you think that the government will be providing aid to save you after a disaster strikes, you might want to note what’s going on in Puerto Rico right now.

A warehouse full of emergency supplies was never distributed after Hurricane Maria.

Back in 2017, when the island territory was devastated by Hurricane Maria, loads of emergency supplies were sent to help residents who lost power, many for as long as a year after. But…those supplies were never distributed. Instead, water, food, and cots were stashed away in a warehouse ever since. Watch the video below, which has rightly gone viral.

Last-Minute Coronavirus Quarantine Supplies: What to Buy (and Where to Get It) When the Stuff You Want Is Sold Out

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Do you have the horrible feeling you may have waited too long to purchase supplies for the possibility of quarantine due to the Covid-19 outbreak sweeping the United States? While it’s true that shelves across the nation are bare in some departments, there are still options.

In this article, I’ll suggest some last-minute emergency supplies you can purchase in place of the ones you wanted if you’ve waited too late to shop. To do this, you may have to cast away your plans of being organic and healthful, and you may not get the exact household products you want. You’re stuck with what’s left at this point. So please don’t write to me, angry and horrified because I suggested conventional crackers instead of chia seed ones that were ground by the hardened lava of a Chilean volcano, okay?

What To Do If It’s TOO LATE and You Can’t Evacuate Before a Hurricane

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

What if something happens and you CAN’T evacuate before a hurricane? What if it’s too late to evacuate before the storm makes landfall?

While it’s easy to say, “Oh, they should have left earlier” and run through the gamut of blame, the fact remains that there are all sorts of reasons that leaving didn’t work out.

Gas stations run dry, which means that people can’t drive their cars to leave. Roads are at a standstill as people all try to leave at once in a mass exodus. Train tickets are sold out. Plane tickets are outrageously expensive, in some cases more than three thousand dollars apiece. Maybe someone in the family is disabled and unable to relocate. Maybe they don’t have the money or maybe their work refused to give them time off. (This happens more than you’d think.)
