FOOD: Factor Ready is not a Food Dealer or Distriutorship and we do not stock, ship or sell food supplies. We can nevertheless supply you with beneficial "prepping" tips per this article, and direct you to some good supply sources we have discovered..
Food to keep on hand could easily include even peanut butter and honey, as these are normally readily available and have a long shelf life (as does Spam). Most canned food will store safely for 2 years, except high acidic varieties such as tomatoes (and foods containing vinegar) and these should be used within 1 year. Most dates on canned goods indicate when it was manufactured. But, by all means please acquire some emergency type long life foods for numerous reasons. Most offer long life spans, are quick and easy to prepare, offer compact storage ability and offer quick grab and go portability.
WATER: Factor Ready is not a Water Dealer or Distributorship and we do not stock, ship or sell water supplies. We can nevertheless supply you with beneficial "prepping" tips per this article, and direct you to some good supply sources we have discovered..
WATER FILTRATION: Needless to say, good clean pure water is absolutely vital for our ongoing good health. In regard to survival, we can reportedly go up to 3 minutes without air, live 3 hours in a truly harsh enviroment, go 3 days without water (although dehydration can occur within 1 hour in hot areas), and survive up to 3 weeks without food. Where water is concerned, weʼd certainly recommend at minimum we all standby store (in a cool and dark dry place preferably) some emergency water. For safest water filtration results with the best taste too, use a high quality filter and/or treatment purification drops. AquaTruWater.com has an affordable and compact countertop reverse osmosis purifier, that is highly recommended by Mike Adams, "The Health Ranger." The BigBerkeyWaterFilters.com line of filters is consistently well rated too, such as the testing results by Mr. Adams, at NaturalNews.com. The Seychelle.com company is also well rated and offers an exceptional line of water filters that even includes an Extreme filter that eliminates radiation contamination. Their filters also raise the water pH which is a healthy bonus, especially their pH2O line, which is specifically designed for increased boosts. Their line includes water pitchers, bottles, straws, etc. Aquamira.com also has a good reputation and offers water bottles, purification drops, etc. We all definitely need to have some portable water bottles on hand (at least one for each person) with spare filters for emergency and/or bug out use. You can even use these now for everyday replacement of costly bottled water. Seychelle bottles as example, provide up to 100 gallons of filtered water before a fresh filter is needed. This would equal 757 half liters of bottled water, for just pennies per gallon. The bottles may be used over and over, are recycle friendly, with no leach and BPA free. Be aware too, that AugasonFarms.com offers Water Drink Pouches, 5 gallon storage boxes with liners and a 55 gallon storage kit. We might well need the ability to catch rain water if under all out extended disaster conditions. For further precautions we also suggest you download our First Aid Tips pdf article under Downloads in the Health Tips folder and acquire the books: "Where There Is No Doctor" by David Werner and "When All Plans Fail" by Paul R. Williams, M.D. And of course, store some emergency long life food along with your water plus obtain a good First Aid Kit. On a healthy side note, the Omega-3s found in good Krill Oil supplements can definitely help avoid cellular dehydration issues.
POWER: Factor Ready is not a Generator Dealer or Distriutorship and we do not stock, ship or sell power supplies. We can nevertheless supply you with beneficial "prepping" tips per this article, and direct you to some good supply sources we have discovered..
EMERGENCY POWER NEEDS: As we know, local elecrical power is subject to power outages due to bad weather, equipment failures, etc. Unfortunately, very long term or even semi-permanent outages could well occur in event of an EMP or Cyber attacks on our power grids. We are now livng in turmoil times (see TruNews.com) and certainly all wish to have some form of back up power readily available when needed to run various electrical equipment or appliances, lights, etc. Running your home refrigerator or freezer as little as 1 hour a day as example, could prevent spoilage of costly food. We suggest you acquire a fuel-less generator. Even if you currently have a gasoline operated unit, please remember the smaller and less costly versions of these usually are not built to withstand day in and day out usage. Furthermore, they are very costly to operate, especially with per gallon fuel prices we are now confronted with. Plus gasoline may not be locally available under emergency circumstances. Of course the larger permanent mount units (such as the Guardian brand) for home or business that operate on natural gas or propane would be an asset, although considerably higher in cost than most portable brands.
COMMUNICATIONS: Factor Ready is not a Communications Dealer or Distributorship and we do not stock, ship or sell ham radio supplies. We can nevertheless supply you with beneficial "prepping" tips per this article, and direct you to some good supply sources we have discovered. Radio Communications in America are assigned and administered by the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) who controls who uses what frequencies. Several of these bands are assigned for Amateur Radio usage, popularly known as the Ham Radio Hobby. Operators in this realm have had FCC licensed legal use privlleges since 1912.
HOW DO YOU PLAN TO COMMUNICATE: How do you plan to communicate should a factor disable all local power, phone lines, internet service and cell towers? We recommend you cover this vital base by promptly obtaining an FCC approved Amateur (Ham) Radio License and at minimum a compact (battery operated) hand held radio to access one or more of the Ham radio bands. This will also in many areas (depending on frequencies) monitor local law enforcement and fire services as well. There are now well over 750,000 Americans participating in this most useful and rewarding hobby. Cost can easily be kept under $100 to fully join in, including a radio purchase. The typical Ham HT (Hand Held Transceiver) 5 watt unit as example will operate a distance of up to approx. 20 miles, depending on radio quality, terrain and antenna. However, thanks to private and/or Ham Club owned permanent mounted Repeaters available for 24/7 radio access in most areas, that distance is greatly increased. Even state-wide access is available via nets in some areas. Please download and read our “How To Get Started In Ham Radio” PDF document under the Downloads section at the FactorReady.com web site. It is also posted at our local Ham Club internet site, W5JAS.org. You can further visit the Amateur Radio Relay League national organization web site at ARRL.org for a world of good information on the Ham hobby (including test study books and find clubs in your area, etc.). Once you are into the hobby you may well have interest in a higher class ham license that will permit use of additional frequencies with long range abilities. This can allow continental or even world wide contacts with appropriate antenna and radio or computer gear. Note: Morse code is no longer required for any of the 3 level ham radio FCC licenses. Our local club (and others) can administer the relatively easy multi-choice test questions for any class license sought, Technician, General or Advanced (Extra). The entry (Technician) level test as example is only about 35 questions with 26 correct answer needed for a passing score and re-tests are offered if needed. Pre-study is accomplished via approved designated materials such as economical books, online internet courses or club classes. FCC Ham Licenses are valid for 10 years with no further testing or costs required for renewals.

As for the health topic in general, Cancer is now rampant, with over 100 different types, and now strikes 1 out of 2 American males, and 1 out of 3 females. Over 20,000 people die each day from cancer (with at least 40% reportedly malnutrition related to the disease or treatments involved). So if it scares us, that’s understandable. However… whether you’re trying to avoid cancer or beat it if you’ve got it, there is one very powerful antidote to the fear, and to the disease itself: knowledge. As a senior citizen after several personal bouts with cancer, we’ve seriously looked into the causes, preventions and recovery steps that may be taken. What we’ve learned the hard way applies to literally all auto-immune diseases (especially cancers) and can help us and others avoid or eliminate same. Most cancers as example, take years to form and are considered by many health proponents to be primarily derived due to a weak immune system. This is usually created by any or all of the following; (1) Insufficient nutrition from our modern diets with processed foods and over farming of reduced mineral lands. We need up to 90 different nutrients daily for optimal health per Dr. Joel Wallach, author of “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie.” (2) Faulty dental work such as amalgam fillings leaking mercury toxins and defective root canals poisoning our systems (3) Environmental toxins such as smoking and chemical exposures. (4) Dampened immune systems such as brought on by long.term excessive stress, exposure to chemo and radiation treatments, medication side effects, etc. Cancer remains one of the deadliest, and most terrifying, diseases. Even in developed countries, it sits on the second rank. Experts are attempting their best to lower its risk or prevent it. But, it still steals the life of 35% of its patients. There are various types of cancer treatments. Some patients rely on one treatment, while others have a combination of treatments. However, be aware there are options or what can be beneficial additions to the conventional standard of care treatments which are 100% natural and without negative side effects, that can help prevent or eliminate cancers. We would enourage you to further explore such options and utilize where appropriate any or all of the protocols and supplements described in this article. Special Note: Should chemo be called for with any cancer conditions, inquire about the the "IPT" (Insulin Potentiation Theraphy) low-dose type chemotherapy for reportedly applying any effectiveness wth vastly increased safety factors and greatly reduced negative side effects. Please be fully aware too, that traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments athough often reducing cancer tumor cells, does not normally eliminate dangerous cancer stem cells, which can create reoccurring and metastasized spreading of cancers. As Christians, we do fully believe in the power of Divine Healing and Prayer, but fully feel it is our human obligation to do our part in seeking and maintaining health via conventional and/or alternative care. God can of course do what we cannot do for ourselves, should He so will to enact while we are still on earth. Please see our IMPORTANT NOTES section at end of this artcle for more on Christian centered healing.
