Safe Water is Crucial Following a Disaster

“Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance" - Army saying Just as military leaders develop a plan and strategize to defeat an enemy, so we should plan in advance for an unforeseen event.   We pay car insurance, health insurance, life insurance, and homeowners insurance, yet many Americans still don't have any kind of "insurance" if their utilities were somehow interrupted and they found themselves without water.   According to the CDC half of all adults in America don't have any plans in place in the event of an emergency, in spite of 80% of Americans living in a county that was hit by a weather-related disaster..  The CDC recommends storing one gallon of water per day for each person.  So why don't Americans...

Reduce Inflammation to Protect Yourself From the Coronavirus

"Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits." - Thomas Jefferson According to WebMD inflammation is a process by which the body's white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection from foreign organisms such as bacteria and viruses. However, at times the immune system triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign invaders to fight off and the inflammation becomes chronic, and that's where the mischief starts that can lead to serious health disorders.  We need to look at ways to reduce inflammation, as it can adversely impact the immune...

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." - Benjamin Franklin According to an Esurance survey of 1,000 Americans, 75 percent do not prepare for severe weather emergencies.  The Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation conducted a poll which showed that 44 percent of Americans don't have first-aid kits and 48 percent lack emergency supplies for use in the event of catastrophes.  A Harris poll found that only 54 percent of Americans say they are prepared for long-term power outage or other natural disaster, such as a flood, wildfire or hurricane. Dr. Irwin Redlener, director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University stated: "We are experiencing a continuous increase in the number of extreme weather events, and...
