Every time you turn on the news or get on the internet, you are bombarded with images of one disaster or another. Sometimes it is a tornado, hurricane or earthquake and other times, it is civil unrest that is wreaking havoc. Then there are the terrorists that are always working hard to make this world an unpleasant and uncertain place to live. With so much strife in the world, it only makes sense you would take action to prepare for the inevitable to strike your little corner of the world. Most people always assume it will never happen to them or where they live. Living in a bubble or burying your head in the sand isn't going to help matters when disaster does strike. We have seen the evidence mounting over the past couple of years. Our electricity grids are vulnerable. We could very well find ourselves living in a very dark world. Could you survive? Do you know how to find clean drinking water after the grid fails and your tap no longer gives you what you need to survive? How can you make the water from your local river safe to drink? These are all things you need to consider today. You must be prepared to find food and water and deal with sanitation issues that will arise if the power grid is knocked out for a few weeks or a few long months or even longer. Things will be very different as the community adjusts to life without power, water or gas. Some people will thrive and others will be forced to fight for every moment of life. Do what you can to be a part of the first group and use this book to help yourself prepare for a downed power grid. You owe it to yourself and your family to spend some time putting things away that will ultimately save your life.
Do you want to get started prepping, but don't have enough money to cover your expenses now, let alone start prepping for the future?
Table of Contents Introduction Why is it so important to save food? It is important to plan before storing Allocation of money for storing food Proper food management Variety of food that can be stored It is important to throw away decomposed food Techniques of storing food for longer duration Equipment and utilities that we need to have Storage Techniques Storage Methods It is important to buy the correct products Substitutes at the time of prolonged disaster Water storage and its importance Conclusion Author bio Publisher Introduction We are aware of the fact that disasters can strike at any time of day, and at any place. We are also aware of the fact that we should remain prepared to overcome any such situations and for that we should have some kind of backup. We even know that we should always have some kind of food and water storage, for some days; this will ensure that we are able to live a normal life until the bad effect of the disaster is over. But, the whole question is do we actually follow the simple rule of life, or do we even know the whole process of prepping? Most of the time people face some kind of atrocious situation only because of lack of knowledge about a particular thing. This same case is applicable here, where one does not have adequate knowledge on what to store and how much to store. We sometimes waste a lot of money on buying what is not important and even if we buy correct supply, we do not have adequate knowledge about the storage system of food. This leads to wastage of lot of money, and also does not provide surety on the survival plan. In this book we will discuss about all the parts in detail, so that a person is able to fight back in tough situations, without having to invest a lot of money in it.
When you go into a scientific library or look through the catalogues of scientific publishers, you will quickly find books from food scientists, food technologists, food chemists, food microbiologists, and food toxicologists. Agronomists, nut- tionists, and physicians have written on food, and last but not least cooks. What I missed was a book on food written from the perspective of a biologist. When Susan Safren, the food science editor from Springer Science + Business Media, LLC, invited me to write a book, I decided that I would write this book on food biology. What I had in mind was a survey on eating through space and time in a very fundamental way, but not in the format of a systematic textbook. The present book is more of an ordered collection of scientific essays. Contents.In Chapter 1, I start with a prehistoric Venus to explore the relationship between sex and food. Then I use another lady Europe to inv- tigate the strong links between food and culture. I then ask what is eating in a very basic but simple physicochemical sense. In Chapters 2 and 3, I embark on a biochemistry-oriented travel following the path of a food molecule through the central carbon pathway until it is decomposed into CO and H O and a lot 2 2 of ATP. My account does not intend to teach biochemistry, but to use recent research articles from major scientific journals to look behind food biochemistry."
