Storing Food For Emergency Is Crucial
Do you know how unprepared most of the population is for a real emergency? Storing food, water and health care supplies for such an emergency is crucial. How well do you know your neighbors?
Major disruption of everyday life is highly likely.
You are undoubtedly aware of serious natural disasters caused by storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, extreme temperatures, wildfires, volcanoes, earthquakes and tidal waves (tsunamis), in locations around the world. You have probably heard of the corona-virus in China, and the SARS and Ebola outbreaks of the last few years. These events have disrupted the lives of millions of people around the world.
Within just the last two years a huge number of homes and businesses in the U.S.A. have been damaged and/or without power for an extended time and crops damaged from high winds, tornadoes, massive floods, snow, freezing, ice storms, wildfires, drought, etc., ravaging many areas. Millions have found themselves suddenly without power and and many without food, some for weeks.
In Russia, drought and fires ruined the 2010 season's crops forcing them to curtail wheat exports. In the winter of 2011, millions of dollars worth of vegetable and citrus crops in Florida were ruined by record freezing temperatures. In the last few years, flooding of Mississippi and Missouri rivers has wiped out many acres of crops in the central U.S.A.
A volcanic event anywhere in the world could generate a cloud of ash in the atmosphere that blocks the sun. As a result, we could have year round winter and no crops for more than one season.
A volcanic eruption in Iceland interrupted European air travel for more than a week a few years ago. The ongoing rash of earthquakes and volcanic activities around the world suggests more are coming.
There is a great likelihood of a major new earthquake or a volcanic eruption at anytime at any of a number of locations. Much of the population of California are very used to minor earthquakes that rumble in the depths frequently along the San Andreas Fault.
The Cascadia zone farther north along the west coast off of Oregon and Washington is expected to have a much more devastating event anytime.
One or more major disturbances of nature could cause serious food shortages. Food stocks are drastically low in most areas of the world. Even in the U.S.A., grocery stores and the average household have only enough food on hand to last a few days if the supply chain were interrupted.
Meanwhile, the major disruption in the economy in 2008-9, was a forewarning of a worse economic collapse to come, and perhaps a deeper depression of unknown length.
Some experts expect a financial collapse or reset internationally soon, possibly sparking economic and social chaos.
Further, despite the previous fizzle of super flu viruses that authorities have warned about over the years, a real global pandemic emergency may be unfolding now with the Chinese corona virus that has spread around the world. Quarantines of residents in highly populated areas may be instituted in other nations if the virus spreads as it has in China.
Preparing To Face Challenges
It is crucial for people to understand that no matter how our lifestyle has been for many years, major changes can occur rapidly, even suddenly. Every household needs to be prepared for disturbances in the normal avenues of distribution of food, water, electricity and other necessities.
It is possible for the power grid as well as batteries of most types to be knocked out by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). It could take years to restore the grid to normal functioning after massive damage. It may take even longer to replace vehicles and appliances damaged by an electro-magnetic zap.
Disaster scenarios have already happened on a large scale in Louisiana, Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Alabama, California, Missouri and other central states, and to a lesser degree in many other areas.
What if temperature extremes greatly reduce the areas that crops can grow to maturity? What if there were a mid summer freeze, or other extremes of burning heat and drought or flooding, that kills plants in the fields? What if a major volcanic eruption blanketed the world in an ash cloud that ruins production of crops? What if a pandemic prompts the authorities to lock down people in their residences under quarantine?
Federal and state emergency services are woefully inadequate, and may barely function in a situation such as loss of all electrical power.such as a hurricane, a major earthquake, a tsunami, a volcanic blast, a poisonous gas cloud, or loss of all electrical power. Think of New Orleans after the Katrina hurricane, the tsunami and ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan and Hurricane Sandy's effect on New York and New Jersey.
Food storage and stored water are at the top of the list of preparedness. It is wise to keep enough of these on hand for at least several weeks for everyone in your household. Some of those who have already prepared for such emergencies have enough survival supplies for six months, a year or more.
This is not presented to generate fear. It is about the importance of being prepared. It is important to make plans to have necessities on hand for an emergency.
Here is a partial list:
~ tools ~ fuel in your vehicle
alternative heating (eg., wood stove, kerosene, etc.)
alternative transportation (eg., bicycle, scooter)
alternative power (eg., generator, wind, solar, etc.)
emergency radio (battery operated or hand cranked)
best choices for stored foods are nutritious, ready to eat items,
that are protected from oxidation, and which do not readily spoil
without refrigeration. We suggest ordering a supply of prepared
dehydrated meals, with our flaxseed and other super foods as high
nutrition supplemental foods.

Excellent Super Foods for Storing
is one of the most nutritionally dense and beneficial foods on the planet. It is rich in complete protein, rare Omega 3 source essential oil, crucial antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, and superior fiber. And it is very affordable, an excellent value for the powerful benefits it provides.
Supplement your meals with with ready to eat super foods.
Organic flax seed
Northern Edge organic milled flax seedis grown in Saskatchewan, where there are no toxic metals in the soil. The cold climate causes a far superior oil content. It is specially milled for preservation of its oils and other nutrients; and it is vacuum-packed for extra protection. It has been tested and found to have no detectable deterioration after more than two years of storage at room temperature.
This organic vacuum-packed milled flaxseed is therefore an excellent and very important item to keep as a stored food supply in case of natural disturbances, economic chaos or other reasons that normal food distribution might be disrupted.
This is the highest quality flaxseed available. It is is ready to eat, outstandingly nutritious and life-supporting; and there is no need for refrigeration or cooking.
With this and most storable foods, a good strategy is to rotate your stock -- consume older supplies first, replacing them with fresh stock as the inventory reaches your set minimum.
I also recommend Delicious Greens 8000 for food storage purposes. This super food mix complements the flaxseed. Combined, these items contain almost all needed nutrients.
Together these super foods provide: complete protein, essential oils, including Omega 3, many antioxidants, nearly all known vitamins, abundant minerals, raw food enzymes, pigments such as chlorophyll and beta carotene, and ideal fiber for the digestive tract.
NOTE:Avoid wheat, which is not a favorable food for humans.
Be prepared to sustain yourselves and your health in changed circumstances.
It is quite economical to order Northern Edge flaxseed by the case of 12 bags. You can get it at a very low price by ordering in case lots via freight carrier shipped from Canada. You could combine orders with friends and neighbors to bring in 36 or more cases at substantial savings.
NOTE: It is recommended that these items be consumed and replaced over the course of 2 to 3 years.
Here is the math regarding usage:
1 case of 12 bags of flax or 1 case of Delicious Greens 8000 is approximately a:
1 year supply for 1 adult
6 month supply for 2 adults
4 month supply for 3 adults
3 month supply for 4 adults
NOTE: In a crisis, more than the normal amount of each of these items may be consumed for nutritional sustenance.
If your household is small in number, perhaps you can assemble a more economical order among friends and relatives.
