Default Discussion : Ideas for Pre-emptive Supply Storage

Greetings Brothers & Sisters.

This thread is to discuss what people think everyone should begin considering to store in the event that the world civilisation grinds to a halt and breaks down.

The main ones are obviously food & water, but what sorts? Canned foods are the obvious choice due to their shelf life.

Also what else? How about shelter? tools? So throw in you ideas, and debate their applications. Maybe it could help those planning such things and didnt think of something

And this...

A $3 Water Purifier That Could Save Lives
By Donald G. McNeil Jr.
The New York Times
Tuesday 10 October 2006
In very poor countries, the family that has to walk miles to fetch drinking water from a well or a stream may be the lucky one. In many villages, the water source is a filthy pond trod by animals and people, or a mud puddle out next to the yam field.
As a result, about 6,000 people a day - most of them children - die from water-borne diseases.
Vestergaard Frandsen, a Danish textile company that supplies water filters to the Carter Center guinea worm eradication program and mosquito-killing plastic tarps to refugee camps, has come up with a new invention meant to render dangerous water drinkable.
The invention is called Lifestraw, a plastic tube with seven filters: graduated meshes with holes as fine as 6 microns (a human hair is 50 to 100 microns), followed by resin impregnated with iodine and another of activated carbon. It can be worn around the neck and lasts a year.
Lifestraw isn't perfect, but it filters out at least 99.99 percent of many parasites and bacteria, the demons in most fatal cases of diarrhea.
It is less effective against viruses, which are much smaller and cause diseases like polio and hepatitis, and it wouldn't protect American backpackers against the parasite giardia.
Nor does it filter out metals like arsenic, and it has a slight iodine aftertaste (not necessarily a bad thing in the large stretches of the globe with iodine deficiency).
It can be manufactured for about $3, but it needs more field-testing. Only about 100,000 have been handed out, 70,000 to earthquake victims in Kashmir last year.
Already in the works, however, is a Lifestraw toddler version - which will be squeezable.

This website discusses MMS, which was mentioned in a discussion between Michael St Clair, Henry Deacon, Bill and Kerry.

It calls it the overnight cure for cancer but actually takes a few days. I've researched the product for almost a year and I think they may be on to something. It would also be very helpful for things like viruses and infections. This method uses the MMS on the skin with DMSO as the MMS is hard on the stomach but seems to be easily and gently absorbed thru the skin. All 4 products used in this are very low cost, I purchased MMS on ebay for about half the price as the websites that sell it.

Last but not least, a toilet that's cheap and easy. Waste goes into a compost pile. It's all in the book or I have a trimmed down MS Word copy. If anyone wants me to send, just email me. The book is thorough and the website weblife.org may still have all the info, the whole book, online. read it all then trim it down to the most essential info.

This is the lowest cost, most usable one I have ever found. Every other composting toilet has a lot of drawbacks such as smell, size, work and high cost. In the US it will cost less than $25. You need only a few 5 Gal paint type buckets, a toilet seat and a pile of wood shavings or sawdust. The wasdust will help the waste compost. The author has had the resulting compost tested several times and it's quite safe. No nasty organisms, even in winter.



Happy composting!
