15 Things You’ll Regret Not Having Enough of When SHTF
Ask A Prepper has a list of 15 things preppers will not have enough of should disaster strike. I don’t think there is anything shocking or unusual about their list but several of them all point to one thing – one very important thing – and I’m glad to see they lead with it. Disease.
One of my favourite preppers is The Patriot Nurse. If you don’t subscribe to her YouTube channel, do so now. She has tons of great information, she’s a practising Nurse and she has links to cheap medical supplies to buy on-line. She made a video that made a very compelling case (I’ll see if I can find a link and update later) about what would kill most people after the initial disaster passed. The number one killer will be disease and mainly caused by poor sanitation.
Notice Ask A Prepper’s list includes antibiotics to treat diseases; knowledge and skills to treat diseases and prevent them; salt and vinegar for food preservation; sponges and steel wool for cleaning; pest control to stop spread of diseases; cleaning supplies; and toilet paper. So, over half the list is devoted to stopping and treating diseases. Which ties in with The Patriot Nurse’s warning that diseases will be the number one killer after a disaster. I think a quick look at disasters around the world bares this out.
I think it’s important to point out the skills and knowledge on the list. I like the saying that “skills trump gear”. With that in mind, have a look at my 10 home remedies post with links to the healing spice chart and survival uses for everyday items.
I guess the important thing to take away from all this is, you should give disease prevention and care, a lot more priority and thought than maybe you have been. It’s tough trying to get all the supplies you think you need; tougher still maybe to prioritize what to get. Hopefully this will help.
