It really sounds funny when somebody talks about food crisis in America.
But is it really that funny?
If you have watched news on BBC, CNN or Fox when they predicted the food crisis, it will NOT sound funny to you.
If you have observed the recent devastations caused by Katrina, Irene and others, it will NOT sound funny.
If you are aware of the recent draughts in Oklahoma and Texas, it will NOT sound funny at all.
Natural disasters can occur any time and cannot be predicted, even by the latest technology. So you should better be safe than sorry. But how can you cope with these crisis situations? It’s not an easy job until you have a clear and straightforward roadmap. I have found this roadmap in the form of a groundbreaking guide, called survive food crisis, by Jason Richards.
When a disaster hits an area, the food can vanish from the shelves of the largest supermarkets in just three hours. One the other hand, it can take up to three weeks to fill these shelves with the commodes again.
How will your family survive during this time when you can’t even find a Twinkie to eat?
The smartest approach is to shortlist the most important and nutritious items and purchase them before anybody else does. Then, you will have to find ways to preserve this food, as the largest freezers can only contain food for a few days only.
But when calamities occur, you don’t even have time to put your shoes on and rush to the market. Therefore, it is a good choice to spend a few bucks and get the expert opinion how to handle such a situation.
The price of this guide is ONLY $27, and you don’t have anything to lose as they offer a 60-day money back guarantee.
Food crisis can occur due to several reasons but following are the main three of them:
1. Natural disasters
2. Severe crop decimation
3. Inflating food prices
Food prices in America are already increasing and it is expected that by the end of 2011, they will ‘go through the roof’.
Natural disasters like Katrina and Irene can occur any minute and leave even the Biggest Government helpless. During the two mentioned tragedies, many people were left on the roads without anything to eat.
This can happen to you during the coming food crisis – any minute!
Unfortunately, America is in danger of turning back into a long-lasting “Dust Bowl”. We have already lost forty percent of our rice crops and major portion of our corn is merely used for bio fuel.
Our crops are rapidly failing to feed the entire nation and we have already imported one third of our food.
But have you ever seen an empty supermarket, especially, when you needed the food most?
It happened during the World War II, and the prominent economists are predicting it to be repeated quite soon. We can call it the worst case scenario.
Nobody wants his family to be deprived of the basic necessities of life. But disasters don’t care. So, it is your duty to secure your clan from the coming food crisis with a long term plan.
But do you really know:
What are the essential food items to buy before stores are emptied?
When to buy the survival foods on just $10 (getting the best deal)?
Where and how to store your food to last for years?
There are some genuine solutions to food crisis which have the answer to these vital questions and one of the very best is available here for an instant download.
The best thing about this guide is that it doesn’t cost you a fortune and you can secure the future of your family in just $27 (with a 100% money back guarantee). If you think it’s a waste of money, get ready for the worst food shortage as the starving mob of people that will snatch everything away from you.
Have you ever seen an empty supermarket when you terribly needed to buy something?
I hope the answer is no.
American economy is going through one of the worst phases in the history. But, thankfully, the situation is not that severe that you should worry about how to survive food crisis.
If the situation is that nice, why am I wasting my time as well as yours, writing this survive food crisis review?
I just want you to get ready for the worst case scenario.
You must have heard the news about coming food crisis on the major news channels. You must have heard the same news by word of mouth. The recession and ever-inflating prices of commodities are initiating an alarming situation.
But the worst of all are the natural disasters, which can be neither predicted nor stopped. Same goes for severe crop decimation and draughts.
If you are like most of the other Americans, you would simply laugh at it and ignore it. People say they have already heard of a coming Armageddon several times before, which never came.
Remember what happened when preacher Harold Camping made his senseless prediction regarding “May 21st”? Most people, laughed at it, posted humorous comments about it on the internet and enjoyed themselves.
But what happened when 21st May came???
People forgot all the jokes and were extremely terrified. They had bought all the available food rations and the supermarkets were emptied by 6 pm!
Are you prepared for that? Maybe not! But you should take the precautionary measures to avoid any last-minute hassle.
Do you know the easiest way to defeat the coming food crisis?
Do you know which the 41 essential food items are that run out before anything else?
Do you know how to get one week supplies for you and your spouse in only $10?
Do you know how to store heaps of edibles for months?
If you do not know all these, it means you are not prepared for the crisis coming out way. But if you want to make sure that you and your family do not starve, you need to read the survive food crisis, by Jason Richards.
It has everything you need to know when there is a food shortage in America next time.
The price of this guide is nominal and you can instantly download it for only $27. Additionally, it is risk free because if you are not satisfied, you are entitled to get your money back in 60 days.
Remember when it is a matter of survival, Americans, the most civilized nation in the world, can turn into bloodthirsty freaks and they will not hesitate to snatch the last piece of food from you. You need to know how to tackle such a situation and also teach it to your kids!
Preparing yourself for the worst case scenario – is smart, not silly!

As tensions continue to rise between the United States and North Korea over their nuclear weapons testing I thought now would be a great time to remind everyone about the importance of being prepared for nuclear fallout. Although most average middle class Americans can’t afford to go out and buy the best chemical protection suit with built in respirator there are some reasonable, cheap alternatives we can use to protect ourselves.
Keep in mind that if a nuclear disaster were to occur most of the protective gear would be bought out in a matter of minutes so it’s important to prepare yourself now so that it’s ready when you need it. I remember when the earthquake hit Fukushima back in 2011 we sold out our supply of anti-radiation tablets in under an hour, prompting me to write an entire article about alternatives to potassium iodide.
Here is a list of some excellent survival gear that would be extremely helpful in a nuclear fallout situation. Continue reading →
Updated: 8/16/17 Did you know that in a nuclear fallout emergency having something as simple as potassium iodide tablets on hand could actually save your life?
Editors Update: North Korea Nuclear Crisis
With talk of WW3 and nuclear strikes from North Korea all over the news this week I really started thinking about how important it is to make sure we have sufficient supplies on hand to protect our families. This kind of thing is not easy to find; if a warning were issued the nuclear fallout was scheduled to hit your area in a matter of hours or even days everyone would be scrambling to make sure they have their preparations in order. Most regular retail stores do not carry potassium iodide or anti-radiation tablets. Some specialty health food stores, survival stores and possibly camping supply stores may carry them but their inventory would run out quickly in the face of a nuclear fallout threat.
That’s why I went ahead and ordered a couple of extra bottles yesterday. I figure it never hurts to have extra on-hand for the neighbors or whoever might need them since obviously I don’t need them all for myself.
Sources are reporting that local health food stores have been completely wiped out of all potassium iodide tablets and many suppliers are sold out as well. As word of the potential nuclear war has spread, people have been emptying the shelves of potassium iodide and alternative solutions.
After making some calls, I did not find any potassium iodide tablets for sale locally. However, I did end up with some good advice on alternative therapies and even some suggestions that the potassium iodide tablets may not work for the type of radiation we would experience from a fallout. The CDC has a great article with all the facts on potassium iodide, what exactly it does inside the body and what it can and can not protect you from. However there are also some rumors flying around the web that there are some serious side affects from taking this drug, ironically one of them is cancer – the exact thing it’s supposed to prevent. Be sure to do your research and make an informed decision on your purchase.
I like to take a multi-pronged approach when it comes to survival so here’s what I found out in case you’re looking for a little more assurance against radiation poisoning.
Alternatives to Potassium Iodide
Several sources suggest that Kelp may be used to treat the affects of radiation on the body. Many “green foods” such as kelp, seaweed, wheat grass or any other source of chlorophyll will have similar properties.
“In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.”
When Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed with nuclear weapons in WW II, a
follow-up study was done on the health of the Japanese people. The fact that many did
not have as serious health repercussions as expected was attributed to the regular
inclusion of miso soup and seaweed in their diet.

Lightning has always intrigued me.. so much power concentrated into a tiny space with the ability to cause a ridiculous amount of damage and pops up seemingly out of nowhere. I recently stumbled across a video where lightning hits a creek and literally displaces the entire water bed with its sheer force.
Most of us know enough to keep away from water bodies in a lightning storm and avoid situations where we might be struck but how many really know where it comes from and how it works? Check out this great infographic below to learn some interesting facts about lightening.
A look at man’s relationship with Dirt. Dirt and humans couldn’t be closer. We started our journey together as stardust, swirled by cosmic forces into our galaxy, solar system, and planet. We are made of the same stuff. Four billion years of evolution created dirt as the living source of all life on Earth including humans. Dirt has given us food, shelter, fuel, medicine, ceramics, flowers, cosmetics and color –everything needed for our survival.
A millennial shift in consciousness about the environment offers a beacon of hope – and practical solutions. Around the globe, pioneers are coming together to save earth’s last natural resource. Tiny villages rise up to battle giant corporations slaughtering their land. Scientists discover connections with soil that can balance global warming. Generation X brands organic farming as trendy and children begin to eat from edible school yards. Inmates find inner peace and job skills in a prison horticulture program.

WW3 is breaking out, the nuclear bombs are going off, where would you go? You may not know, but powerful individuals around the world have a plan in case of such event, and it doesn’t include you. In an EOTW scenario, mega-bunkers have been quietly built for the last 60 years, ensuring that world leaders and government structures will continue, no matter what.
There are so many underground bunkers we could explore, but we chose to focus on the largest and most significant underground facilities that we know of. Most underground bunkers that become public end up being abandoned, so most if not all of these locations won’t be the primary bunkers for government leaders when the SHTF. But we can at least get an idea of the size, precision and vastness of these subterranean cities and the networks that connect them. Let’s take a look a look at 10 very impressive doomsday bunkers.
1. Mount Weather
Mount Weather, also known as the “Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center” is described as a civilian command facility in the heart of Virginia. It is also used as the center of operations for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). This site is known to be a major relocation site, which would serve as one primary location for the Continuity of Operations Plan. If the President or FEMA were to make an announcement over the Emergency Alert System, it would likely come from here.
This location was discovered when TWA Flight 514, crashed into Mount Weath on Dec. 1st 1974.
The famed Cheyenne Mountain Complex has been the subject of much curiosity. It is located close to Colorado Springs, Colorado and situated deep in 2000 feet of granite. This facility was designed to withstand a 5 megaton nuclear explosion up to 1.7 miles away. Commissioned at the height of the Cold War, Cheyenne Mountain became one of the nations largest underground facilities and became headquarters for NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) in 1966, as well as U.S. Strategic Command, U.S. Air Force Space Command and U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) in later years. This facility was at one time critical to to aerospace warning and control during missile or air attacks against North America. While still in use as an alternate command facility, it is likely that since this complex is so well known it will no longer be used in a significant way in the future.
Interesting Fact Cheyenne Mountain is commonly seen in fiction, seen in such works as Terminator 3, War Games, Stargate and Jeremiah (tv series).
Raven Rock’s construction began in 1950, when President Harry S. Truman approved the construction of this facility. It was meant for use as a relocation site for the pentagon staff (up to 3000 people). Over 1.5 million cubic yards of granite rock were blasted out during the construction period of only 10 months. There were five, 3 story buildings originally built in the complex. The complex has roughly 700,000 square feet of usable space. Located along the Pennsylvania-Maryland border, the Raven Rock Mountain Complex is full is interesting amenities. While it started with very simple facilities it now includes: several underground reservoirs, a high-tech ventilation system, fire department, dental clinic, medical clinic, dining facility, post office, snack bar, dormitories, chapel, barber shop, fitness center and even, you guessed it, a Starbucks.
Interesting Fact Raven Rock is shown the video game “Fallout 3” as being the east-coast headquarters for a fragmented government group know as “the enclave”. It is also the location of a self-aware super computer known as “ZAX”.
4. Moscow Metro – Underground Cities and Rail Lines
Unknown to most traveling the subways of Moscow, there is something more down there than just a basic transit system. There is a large subterranean system of secrets trains and bunkers beneath Moscow, most of which was built by Stalin during the Cold war (code named D-6). What we know about this facility is very little, mostly because there are few (if any) first hand accounts of a secret metro’s existence. Interestingly, in 1991 the United States Department of Defense released a report saying this:
“The Soviets have constructed deep-underground both in urban Moscow and outside the city. These facilities are interconnected by a network of deep interconnected subway lines that provide a quick and secure means of evacuation for the leadership. The leadership can move from their peacetime offices through concealed entryways in protective quarters beneath the city. There are important deep-underground command posts in the Moscow area, one located at the Kremlin. Soviet press has noted the presence of an enormous underground leadership bunker adjacent to Moscow State University. These facilities are intended for the national command authority in wartime. They are estimated to be 200-300 meters deep, and can accommodate an estimated 10,000 people. A special subway line runs from some points in Moscow and possibly to the VIP terminal at Vnukovo Airfield(…)”
—Military forces in transition, 1991, p. 40
“Underground City” in Ramenki
Near Moscow State University, in the Ramenki district, there is a series of complex underground buildings. These facilities could supposedly hold up to 15,000 people, which is an unheard of amount of people compared to most government bunkers. They could also maintain this system for up to 30 years, which is again very unprecedented.
The Underground City is referred to as “Ramenki-43” by the general public. 43 is thought to be the address of one of the facility entrances.
This facility, while not officially recognized as a survival bunker, could easily be viewed as one. Taking up 10,000 square feet of space in a 1,000 acre limestone mine, the Iron Mountain storage facility is massive and rumored to be one of the most secure locations in the world. Records were stored here as early as 1954 but in 1998 a private company called Iron Mountain Incorporated purchased the old mine.
Today everything from social security records to bill gates private collection is stored here. All of the most important records will be stored in the refrigerated archive at a cool -4 degrees. Records stored in this way could be preserved for thousands of years.
There is speculation that this facility would double over as a relocation center for Americas private industry moguls. The mine includes a 5 engine fire department, power generators, de-humidification, refrigeration and air filtration systems, an underground lake with water purification, as well as high tech sprinklers, plumbing and wiring throughout.
Despite it’s sterling reputation, Iron Mountain has lost records on 3 occasions. Over a million records have been lost between the 3 accidents.
the weather experts are predicting a very tumultuous month ahead. This harrowing tale of a historic hurricane in New England back in 1938 serves a stark reminder of the power of mother nature as well as the prevailing strength of the human spirit.
Be sure to keep alert and prepared with all the crazy threats we’re facing today, now is not the time to slip on your preps. Buy some potassium iodide just in case, keep duct tape and plastic sheeting on hand and be prepared to help out your friends and neighbors. We’re in for a bumpy ride!

The following is a “healthy food hot list” consisting of the 28 foods that will give you the biggest nutritional bang for you caloric buck, as well as decrease your risk for deadly illnesses like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Along with each description is a suggestion as to how to incorporate these power-foods into your diet.
ApricotsThe Power: Beta-carotene, which helps prevent free-radical damage and protect the eyes. The body also turns beta-carotene into vitamin A, which may help ward off some cancers, especially of the skin. One apricot has 17 calories, 0 fat, 1 gram of fiber. Snacks on them dried, or if you prefer fresh, buy when still firm; once they soften, they lose nutrients.
The Power: Oleic acid, an unsaturated fat that helps lower overall cholesterol and raise levels of HDL, plus a good dose of fiber. One slice has 81 calories, 8 grams of fat and 3 grams of fiber. Try a few slices instead of mayonnaise to dress up your next burger.
The Power: Ellagic acid, which helps stall cancer-cell growth. These berries are also packed with vitamin C and are high in fiber, which helps prevent high cholesterol and heart disease. A cup has only 60 calories, 1 gram of fat and 8 grams of fiber. Top plain low-fat yogurt or oatmeal (another high fiber food) with fresh berries.
The Power: Vitamin C (117mg in half a melon, almost twice the recommended daily dose) and beta-carotene – both powerful antioxidants that help protect cells from free-radical damage. Plus, half a melon has 853mg of potassium – almost twice as much as a banana, which helps lower blood pressure. Half a melon has 97 calories, 1 gram of fat and 2 grams of fiber. Cut into cubes and freeze, then blend into an icy smoothie.
The Power: Helps fight bladder infections by preventing harmful bacteria from growing. A cup has 144 calories, 0 grams of fat and 0 fiber. Buy 100 percent juice concentrate and use it to spice up your daily H20 without adding sugar.
The Power: Lycopene, one of the strongest carotenoids, acts as an antioxidant. Research shows that tomatoes may cut the risk of bladder, stomach and colon cancers in half if eaten daily. A tomato has 26 calories, 0 fat and 1 gram of fiber. Drizzle fresh slices with olive oil, because lycopene is best absorbed when eaten with a little fat.
The Power: These little gems are a great source of iron, which helps the blood transport oxygen and which many women are short on. A half-cup has 218 calories, 0 fat and 3 grams of fiber. Sprinkle raisins on your morning oatmeal or bran cereal – women, consider this especially during your period.
The Power: A good source of potassium and fiber, figs also contain vitamin B6, which is responsible for producing mood-boosting serotonin, lowering cholesterol and preventing water retention. The Pill depletes B6, so if you use this method of birth control, make sure to get extra B6 in your diet. One fig has 37 to 48 calories, 0 fat and 2 grams of fiber. (Cookie lovers – fig bars have around 56 calories, 1 gram of fat and 1 gram of fiber per cookie). Fresh figs are delicious simmered alongside a pork tenderloin and the dried variety make a great portable gym snack.
The Power: Limonene, furocoumarins and vitamin C, all of which help prevent cancer. A wedge has 2 calories, 0 fat and 0 fiber. Buy a few of each and squeeze over salads, fish, beans and vegetables for fat free flavor. See also: Beneficial Bytes: Lemons and Limes.
The Power: Quercetin is one of the most powerful flavonoids (natural plant antioxidants). Studies show it helps protect against cancer. A cup (chopped) has 61 calories, 0 fat and 3 grams of fiber. Chop onions for the maximum phytonutrient boost, or if you hate to cry, roast them with a little olive oil and serve with rice or other vegetables.
The Power: These odd-looking vegetables contain silymarin, an antioxidant that helps prevent skin cancer, plus fiber to help control cholesterol. One medium artichoke has 60 calories, 0 fat and 7 grams of fiber. Steam over boiling water for 30 to 40 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice on top, then pluck the leaves off with your fingers and use your teeth to scrape off the rich-tasting skin. When you get to the heart, you have found the best part!
The Power: Gingerols may help reduce queasiness; other compounds may help ward off migraines and arthritis pain by blocking inflammation-causing prostaglandins. A teaspoon of fresh gingerroot has only 1 calorie, 0 fat and 0 fiber. Peel the tough brown skin and slice or grate into a stir-fry.
The Power: Indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane, which help protect against breast cancer. Broccoli also has lots of vitamin C and beta-carotene. One cup (chopped) has 25 calories, 0 fat and 3 grams of fiber. Don’t overcook broccoli – instead, microwave or steam lightly to preserve phytonutrients. Squeeze fresh lemon on top for a zesty and taste, added nutrients and some vitamin C.
The Power: Lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help fend off macular degeneration, a major cause of blindness in older people. Plus, studies show this green fountain of youth may help reverse some signs of aging. One cup has 7 calories, 0 fat and 1 gram of fiber. Add raw leaves to a salad or saut? with a little olive oil and garlic.
Bok Choy (Chinese cabbage)
The Power: Brassinin, which some research suggests may help prevent breast tumors, plus indoles and isothiocyanates, which lower levels of estrogen, make this vegetable a double-barreled weapon against breast cancer. A cup will also give you 158mg of calcium (16 percent of your daily recommended requirement) to help beat osteoporosis. A cup (cooked) has 20 calories, 0 fat and 3 grams of fiber. Find it in your grocer’s produce section or an Asian market. Slice the greens and juicy white stalks, then saute like spinach or toss into a stir-fry just before serving.
Squash (Butternut, Pumpkin, Acorn)
The Power: Winter squash has huge amounts of vitamin C and beta-carotene, which may help protect against endometrial cancer. One cup (cooked) has 80 calories, 1 gram of fat and 6 grams of fiber. Cut on in half, scoop out the seeds and bake or microwave until soft, then dust with cinnamon.
Watercress and Arugula
The Power: Phenethyl isothiocyanate, which, along with beta-carotene and vitamins C and E, may help keep cancer cells at bay. One cup has around 4 calories, 0 fat and 1 gram of fiber. Do not cook these leafy greens; instead, use them to garnish a sandwich or add a pungent, peppery taste to salad.
The Power: The sulfur compounds that give garlic its pungent flavor can also lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, lower blood pressure and even reduce your risk of stomach and colon cancer. A clove has 4 calories, 0 fat and 0 fiber. Bake a whole head for 15 to 20 minutes, until soft and sweet and spread on bread instead of butter.
Grains, Beans and Nuts
The Power: A half cup of cooked quinoa has 5 grams of protein, more than any other grain, plus iron, riboflavin and magnesium. A half-cup has 318 calories, 5 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber. Add to soup for a protein boost. Rinse first, or it will taste bitter.
The Power: A tablespoon gives you about 7 percent of your daily magnesium, which helps prevent muscle cramps; it is also a good source of vitamin E. One tablespoon has 27 calories, 1 gram of fat and 1 gram of fiber. Sprinkle some over yogurt, fruit or cereal.
The Power: Isoflavones, which may inhibit estrogen-promoted breast cancers, plus fiber for heart health and an impressive 9 grams of protein per half cup. A half-cup (cooked) has 115 calories, 0 fat and 8 grams of fiber. Isoflavones hold up through processing, so buy lentils canned, dried or already in soup. Take them to work, and you will have a protein packed lunch.
The Power: Studies show that peanuts or other nuts (which contain mostly unsaturated “good” fat) can lower your heart-disease risk by over 20 percent. One ounce has 166 calories, 14 grams of fat and 2 grams of fiber. Keep a packet in your briefcase, gym bag or purse for a protein-packed post-workout nosh or an afternoon pick me up that will satisfy you until supper, or chop a few into a stir-fry for a Thai accent. See also: The Nut Case
The Power: A half cup has more than 25 percent of your daily requirement of folate, which helps protect against heart disease and reduces the risk of birth defects. A half-cup (canned) has 103 calories, 1 gram of fat and 6 grams of fiber. Drain a can, rinse and toss into a pot of vegetarian chili.
The Power: Bacteria in active-culture yogurt helps prevent yeast infections; calcium strengthens bones. A cup has 155 calories, 4 grams of fat, 0 grams of fiber. Get the plain kind and mix in your own fruit to keep calories and sugar down. If you are lactose intolerant, never fear — yogurt should not bother your tummy.
The Power: Riboflavin (a.k.a. vitamin B2) is important for good vision and along with vitamin A might help improve eczema and allergies. Plus, you get calcium and vitamin D, too. One cup has 86 calories, 0 fat and 0 fiber. If you are used to high fat milk, don’t go cold turkey; instead, mix the two together at first. Trust this fact: In a week or two you won’t miss it!
Shellfish (Clams, Mussels)
The Power: Vitamin B12 to support nerve and brain function, plus iron and hard-to-get minerals like magnesium and potassium. Three ounces has 126 to 146 calories, 2 to 4 grams of fat and 0 fiber. Try a bowl of tomato-based (and low fat) Manhattan clam chowder.
The Power: Cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel and tuna are the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce the risk of cardiac disease. A 3-ounce portion (cooked) has 127 calories, 4 grams of fat, 0 fiber. Brush fillets with ginger-soy marinade and grill or broil until fish flakes easily with a fork.
The Power: A great source of vitamin B12 and immunity-boosting zinc. A 3-ounce portion has 84 calories, 1 gram of fat, 0 fiber. The “crab” in sushi is usually made from fish; buy it canned instead and make your own crab cakes. See also: Fish and Seafood Recipes
Geiger Counters, used to detect ionizing radiation have been flying off the shelves due to the recent nuclear threat from North Korea. Just like we saw with the potassium iodide shortage after the nuclear reactor meltdown in Japan back in 2011, everyone seems to want to be as prepared as possible for whatever may come.
Geiger counters were first invented by a brilliant German physicist named Hans Geiger. Since radiation is extremely harmful to all living things yet invisible and very hard to detect this was indeed a revolutionary invention of it’s time. When the first Geiger counter was released on the market, it was extremely expensive and bulky making it impractical for the average person. However, as technology continues to improve the devices have become more inexpensive and easier to use, allowing everyday people to own one.
In true survivalist form, you can take matters into your own hands and get your own geiger counter to monitor the radiation in and around your home. These are vital to have in a nuclear fallout crisis because otherwise, you have no way of knowing when sheltering is no longer necessary. It can also help you avoid contaminated food or water, or “hot spots” of radiation once the fallout has passed.
While there are many different options available for purchasing your own geiger counter, many are simply too bulky and impractical for modern day use. I have hand selected my best recommendations for our readers so that you can buy with ease knowing that most of the legwork has already been done for you.
