  • Revised list. Top Prepper Web sites: Google changed their algorithms, which
    means you can no longer judge a Web site by it's Google rankings. We used

  • A flash of light, a blast of heat! In one quick mushroom cloud a devastating
    nuclear catastrophe could take your life or take you back to the dark ages.
    How will you survive a nuclear attack or accident? As a prepper, you need to
    have a plan to survive a nuclear fallout even if you don't live near a nuclear
    plant. As overwhelming as it may seem there are some things you can do to
    mitigate the situation. For example:

    isotopes and isotopes bound to metals.

    for a prepper from the obvious cleaning teeth and morale building to helping
    you fish. Plus, there are a variety of kinds of gum to help you think better,
    stay awake or quench your thirst. Stock chewing gum for your survival.

  • SOLDIER FUEL food bars “pack a wallop of balanced nutrition and taste
    good, says Popular Science magazine. The Soldier Fuel bar beat Balance
    Bar, Snickers Marathon, and PowerBar Triple Threat in a taste test conducted
    by the Washington Post. And the NY Daily News health editor credits SOLDIER

  • The importance of socks in survival. You won't look at your sock drawer in
    the same way ever again when you know... clean socks can help you avoid
    trench foot, filter water in a survival situation and more. Be sure to wear
    pantyhose underneath (find out why). Learn what survival socks can do!

  • Be aware of Sepsis - the quiet killer. Recently an actress, Patty Duke, died
    of Sepsis - a disease which needs to be on your radar as a prepper! More
    people die of Sepsis than of cancer in the United States. Just one cut, scrape
    or burn could cause this deadly blood poisoning that rarely gets attention
    when it should. Any infection can cause it and it's responsible for more than
    half of all hospital deaths. Learn about how to prevent and survive Sepsis.

  • Bugged by bugs? The mosquitoes are coming! The Zika virus has come to the

  • Weird Survival tools. You'd be amazed what you can do with a tampon in an
    emergency, and why a cigarette is a valuable prepping tool. Check out all the

  • Flick your BIC lighter. A prepper's favorite lighter, BIC is loved for being both
    dependable and inexpensive. A survivor of the Bosnian war found it more
    valuable than a generator! See our wholesale source of BIC lighters.

  • Bugout by bike and be happy. If you must travel for work, you may be

    enough cash to buy yourself a bike to get back home. Here's more on picking
    the right bicycle equipment to survive.

  • What's in your pocket? If you did a pocket dump of the average prepper,
    likely you'd find a knife and/or firearm, a firestarter, and a flashlight. Have you
    neglected one of the most important tools to carry with you daily? Read our
    Prepper's Everyday Carry List.

  • Best protein source for preppers. Preppers often stockpile ample supplies of
    rice and beans, but their meat food storage is lacking. You'd be surprised at
    the kinds of meat available in a can that our grocery store doesn't stock. Take
    for example, ground beef in a can or canned bacon, which are foods you
    could easily use in your pantry. Meats are the best protein source in a can.

  • Prepping Mistakes (and how to avoid them). Sometimes good preppers
    give bad advice, even downright dangerous advice. Take their advice with a
    grain of salt and avoid these common prepping pitfalls.

  • Are you properly dressed for bugging out?  Carefully select your bugout
    clothes to help you stay warm and dry, avoid mosquitoes, and or blend into
    your environment. Bugout clothing can hold gear, like the Emergency Medical
    Technician (EMT) pants, pictured left. The pants will give you a professional,
    non-threatening appearance of a helpful EMT to help you blend into an urban
    environment. You definitely don't want to be wearing military camouflage
    gear in an urban environment or you may find yourself in trouble in times of
    crisis. Plan your bugout clothes now.

  • Fight or Flight response. It's a basic instinct for both man and animal: the
    instant a being realizes that danger is imminent, there is a "flight or fight"
    decision to make. It's an acute stress response. In the world of prepping,
    fighting is "bugging in" and fleeing is "bugging out." Will you know what to do
    when catastrophe strikes? How to know when to bug out or bug in.

  • Simple self defense ideas that anyone can follow. The best self defense is
    in mentally preparing for the positive outcome of an attack: if you can first
    create a win-win option to evade a struggle altogether. Women in particular,
    should envision themselves not as victims, but as knowledgeable and able
    women who can avoid or defend against an attack. Learn why you shouldn't
    wear a pony tail and more in self-defense ideas anyone can follow.

  • Fluoride dangers alert: How to be fluoride-free and avoid the toxins that are
    poisoning tap water, bottled water and toothpaste. The Big Berkey water
    filtration system filters fluoride in your everyday water and can filter raw
    water for your survival in an emergency.

  • Get into sprouting. The beauty about sprouting is that they grow quickly,
    don't cost much and are super nutritious. A bonus is that there are an almost
    endless list of sprouts to try. Here are just nine reasons to get into sprouting.

  • Preppers are the butchers, the bakers and the candlestick makers. If you
    haven't thought much about the importance of candles in survival, there's no
    better time than now to become a candlemaker!

  • Pretty Little Prepper Lies! Whether lies are secretive, boastful or come from
    the misinformed, preppers need to be aware and to take a measure of
    caution before accepting prepping ideas and misinformation. Don't succumb
    to the pretty little lies from other survivalists, FEMA, the U.S. Federal Drug
    Administration, or the Centers for Disease Control either.

  • Lead laced water of Flint, Michigan may harbor Legionnaire's Disease.

  • Eight rust busters! Preppers can "make do" and bust the rust with stuff in
    the pantry and around the house! Learn how to get rid of rust on knives,
    bicycle equipment, cast iron pans, concrete and more.

  • Got natural antibiotics? Here are 19+ natural antibiotic alternatives. Take a
    closer look at the available natural antibiotics. Prescription antibiotics may not
    be available when you need them most, so you'll need alternatives.  Natural
    antibiotics can be your first line of defense (before going to the doctor for
    antibiotic drugs).  Natural antibiotics can help you with sinus infections and
    colds, sore throats, urinary tract infections and ordinary cuts and scrapes.
    You need only have the knowledge of the right natural antibiotics.

  • Terrific turmeric and why you need some. Preppers have been among the
    first to rediscover the significant powers of turmeric, the ancient spice, and its
    active compound: curcumin. 15 medicinal uses of turmeric.

  • Wake up and smell the coffee because it has a vital role in survival!  There
    are grounds for keeping coffee grounds, and coffee cans too! Grab a :cuppa
    Joe" and read all about how to use a coffee filter for survival.

  • Rice water: it's good to know... As an electrolyte replacement, rice water is
    an effective home remedy for nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, which is among
    the primary way preppers will use it, but rice water has so many other
    benefits. Discover more how to use rice water (and more about why you'll
    want to use it).

  • Stove and Campfire (the fuel is all around you and so is the fun). Enjoy
    camping and preparedness using any of the off-grid cooking methods.

  • Better than peanut butter! Do the "choosiest" moms really choose Jif?
    Peanut butter is a good item to have in your food storage, but you may want
    to skip the Skippy and send Peter Pan looking for something even better:
    sunflower seed butter. Here are ten reasons to love sunflower seed butters.
