The Vaccine War



Before you have a conniption fit (“someone is wrong on the internet!”) that I even dare mention Vaccines and getting yourself or children vaccinated or not vaccinated, please let me explain my position first and then make my post without the backlash of internet trolls seething red-hot hatred in my direction. This is not my normal post. I usually post on what are considered “prepper” subjects like canning jams and green beans, or purifying and filtering your stored water for an emergency situation. Don’t disregard me just yet, because I say I am a Prepper. I’m not prepping for the zombie apocalypse or for nuclear annihilation.  I’ve been through enough hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes to know having a stocked pantry is a smart idea. But the media hysteria over vaccinations has inspired me to tell my story.  Also, I am not a physician or medical doctor. I am not giving medical advice. I am merely giving my opinion, my research, and my experiences so that others may learn from my life.  I am a medical research scientist with a degree in Biomedical Science; minors in Chemistry and Psychology. I’m not going to talk to you with medical terminology that requires a dictionary to decipher. I’m not a stuck-up medical know-it-all. I’m a normal person, wife, and mother, just like the majority of people out there. So I will talk to you the way I talk to everyone. I will note that I am not a paid author and have no agreements with anyone or any entity or business/company.  THIS IS PROBABLY THE LONGEST POST I HAVE EVER WRITTEN, SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME AND READ THE ENTIRE POST.  ALSO- PLEASE SHARE IT!

I am writing this to get my story out there for others to read. I also have retired from the medical industry and I do not write or post on medical community sites or blogs. I do not receive compensation or any other perks for writing this article.  I now run our family business and I teach Prepper and Survival Classes as well, which is why I chose to post my story on a survival & prepper blog. I choose to remain anonymous to protect my family, especially my child from the over-reaching hand of government and CPS.


 First, my background.  I used to work as a pharmaceutical research scientist for many years. I am still legally bound even to this day to not reveal the name of the companies I worked for, so please don’t ask. It’s called a Non-Disclosure Agreement and I don’t feel like getting sued.          I wore the white lab coat, the safety goggles, the two-layers of rubber gloves while I hovered over laboratory beakers, test-tubes, and operated hundreds thousands of dollars worth of medical laboratory equipment. I wore the tyvex chem suits with protective boots, 3-layers of gloves, sleeves, ankles and neck-line all duct-taped shut with a hooded respirator while I administered pathogens to animals to make them ill so that we could test a new medication or vaccine. I drew blood hundreds of times a day on animals as small as mice and as big as rhesus macaque non-human primates (monkeys), risking contracting HIV, AIDS, and Hep B every time a needle penetrated their skin.  I worked in the Safety Pharmaceutical Department (or Safety Pharm as we used to call it).  I worked testing new pharmaceutical drugs on animals (pigs, dogs, rats, mice, cats, rabbits, monkeys, guinea pigs, etc) to determine if the drug passed FDA and medical standards for safety, meaning if the drug did not pass, it could not be manufactured and sold to human consumers. The drug had to pass Safety Pharm before it could go to Human Clinical Trials (drugs tests performed on humans).

The trouble with medical research and scientists like myself, is that we still hold the not-quite-naive child-like belief that we are actually performing research that will save lives and make the world a better place (and that the animals whom we test on are sacrificing themselves for the greater good of humanity- for all my animal loving friends out there).  I wanted to find a cure for cancer, stop Alzhemier’s, prevent diabetes, cure heart disease, and advance medicine for human benefit.  I was lucky enough to talk with and study under the doctors and professors at the University of Tennessee on the first cloned Jersey bovine calf and view their research. I took biology and medical classes and received EMT training. I did everything I could to learn as much as I could about medical research. I had hope for the future. That’s why we become research scientists in the first place (besides the fact that we are science nerds).  There are thousands of people like me in the industry who are research scientists who long to solve medical mysteries and help people. We also have morals and ethics. We want to do the right thing.   Read here:

The reality that hit people like me in the face after working for drug research companies is that despite all our hard work, all our genuine concern and hope to better the future, the research companies, Big Pharma, and the government only care about how much money they can make from said drug or vaccine.  Hopes crushed, world devastated, I spent several years trudging through my work, with a faint belief that perhaps we would come across something that would be a true life-saver, like a cure for cancer, or how to stop Alzheimer’s.  Unfortunately, none came.  Our research, time, and money was controlled by the “customer” (ie- big secret company paying for the research in the first place).  Sometimes we knew we were testing a new breast cancer treatment drug. Other times we didn’t know what (we weren’t allowed to know what) we were testing and what effect the drug was supposed to achieve. This could be scary because we didn’t know what we were risking our own exposure to.  Hint- most of these types of tests we paid for by foreign countries who were afraid America would steal their new patented drug, so they didn’t allow us to even know the chemicals we were exposing ourselves to. Perhaps 40 years from now we will all come down with a mystery cancer that will be linked back to the mystery chemicals we were all exposed to in the research labs, much like the sailors in the Navy were exposed to asbestos in the 1940s.   View a video:


In addition to new medications, we also tested vaccines and vaccine safety.  No, the Center for Disease Control does not do all the testing. They are more of a regulatory agency than a true research facility. Yes, they do perform some research there. They do have labs, but their main purposes is to act as a government agency, issuing reports and regulations and tracking epidemics before they become pandemics. Actual scientific research is mostly done by privately owned medical companies and laboratories and then their reports are sent to the CDC for inspection and review, as well as independent testing for confirmation of results.  Specifically we tested the Gardasil vaccine. Here’s where it got hairy: Our report (which was not made public) showed that the Gardasil shot only prevented 2 of the 11 known HPV strains known to cause cervical cancer (and 2 of the known HPV strains that cause genital warts). That is a pretty bad rate to justify a vaccine’s manufacture and sale. Our research also showed that the shot caused health problems, paralysis, lesions, cancer, hearing loss, blindness, infertility, mental issues and even death. And it was originally approved for females only, never to be given to males. Now, males receive the shot and develop breasts, have hormone imbalances, and other side effects (many listed above) from the shot.    We submitted our research and report, giving a dissenting opinion against the manufacture and sale of the Gardasil vaccine, and you know what Big Pharma did? They threw our report and over 6 years worth of research in the trash and pushed the vaccine through FDA regulations just so they could make money. Makes researchers wonder why they even bother. They did not care that there were major side effects to this vaccine that harmed people, and even lead to death in some cases.  They only cared about how much money they could make and how fast.  Want to know more? Go to the link posted below and scroll down to Table 9 & 10. Those are injuries/effects reported by patients receiving the Gardasil vaccine, but they refuse to link the vaccine with the injuries together (note the part about Regardless of Causality- their way of distancing themselves from any legal responsibility).        Read more here:


See, due to government regulations and patent law, a R&D (research and development) company that produces a new medication or vaccine only has 10 years to recover not only all their expenses and cost to manufacture, test, research, and develop that medication or vaccine, pay their overhead expenses, employees and taxes,  but to also make a profit for their investors.  And we all know that NO ONE goes into any business without the intention of making a profit.  (Hell, even charities make profits while being listed as non-profits with the IRS- don’t believe me, google it). So with only the short window of 10 years to recoup millions or even billions of dollars, most pharmaceutical companies try to spend as little as they can on research and development, meet the bare minimum requirements that the FDA requires for production, and then work as fast as they can to get the drug on the market, being sold at every doctors’s office and pharmacy in the country and around the world. For the most part, they follow the regulations and laws set forth by the government, but sometimes they cut corners to save a few bucks, or downplay side effects, which leads to drugs on the market that have not been thoroughly tested and then every ambulance chasing lawyer wants to setup a massive class-action lawsuit for injured parties to try and get rich themselves.  You know you’ve seen the commercials on tv to call a huge law firm somewhere to get in on the class-action lawsuit they claim will net victims millions of dollars in settlement money. In reality, only the lawyers and Big Pharma get rich.

The majority of childhood diseases were already on the decline (largely due to better medical care more readily accessible, improved hygiene standards and habits, and better diet) with most already being negligible before vaccines even came on the market (Google it!).  So if a disease is already declining, why do we need to create hysteria about a vaccine? To boost sales for Big Pharmacy of course!  See article:   More on disease decline:

The regulations set forth though, do not allow a company to financially be able to support researching side effects and long-term effects of a drug or vaccine for- say 20 years- to determine if the drug will have an adverse effect on humans or not.  So herein lies the problem- if a company actually spent the money to research a drug or vaccine for 20 years or more to determine long-term effects and overall effects on the population (and somehow did not go bankrupt in the meantime) and was able to pass FDA approval and be sold on the market, that drug would be so damned expensive that only people like Bill Gates could afford to purchase it.  And drugs and vaccines already cost an arm and a leg today. Big Pharma’s desire to make huge profits fast has created a war on the innocent. The Vaccine War. The Big Pharma War. And it effects all of us. The medical industry no longer is concerned with actually helping people, just making money. There is more money to be made in treating a disease and its symptoms rather than curing it.  It’s easy to see the conspiracy when I used to be one of the conspirators.


Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund Program– This is Big Pharma’s own court and trust fund set up to pay out to families whose child was injured by their vaccines. They have paid out $2.8 BILLION to families already and the amount is growing everyday (UPDATE- it is now over $3.2 Billion as of 2016). The money is managed by the Department of Treasury and comes from a surcharge that’s attached to every vaccine (a tax if you will). Big Pharma has said vaccines aren’t safe, they even put it in their medical pamphlets (manufacturer’s insert) with the vaccine when it is sold, but because of this VICF court, they are no longer held responsible, cannot be sued, and do not have to report injuries to the public or the government.Now, other companies can be sued. If a child carseat is found to be inferior and caused deaths of children, not only is the carseat manufacturer sued, but sometimes even the vehicle manufacturer is sued too! We see it all the time with products on the market- recalls that then result in lawsuits  Hell, even pharmaceutical companies get sued over bad medicatons, but not vaccine manufacturers!  There is not a single mention of this in the media, anywhere!  VICP, $3.2 BILLION.  At least if a pro-vax parent’s child is injured or dies from a vaccine, there is a fund/program, (that they have already paid into) that will throw money at them to “replace their child” or pay their medical bills. You can’t go all “Erin Brockovich” on the medical industry anymore because they have side-stepped the legal system by setting up the VICF and Big Government has allowed Big Pharma to do it.  Where else do you find a fund set up for injuries caused by a product that is still being sold on the market (aside from Tobacco companies that are still paying out on lawsuits won against them years ago)?  The answer is You Don’t.  If a product causes injury or death, it is almost always RECALLED off the market and made illegal to sell/purchase. Then a compensation fund is set up for victims to submit claims through. See recalls on children’s carseats and cribs. Recalls on food, drinks, vehicles, electronic appliances, etc. etc. etc.  So if the VICF by itself doesn’t convince you that Big Pharma knows their products cause harm and death, and just doesn’t care, then I don’t know what will convince you.  To me, the VICF is a Big Red Flag while also being evidence hidden in plain sight.  Read more here:   and here:


For those of you who always want “proof to read” let me tell you that over 98% of all research reports are NEVER made public and never published for civilians to read. They are kept just between medical organizations or as private company property. Once in a while one escapes the blackhole of the medical industry and winds up on the internet, but very rarely.  Most physicians won’t publish dissenting reports (the proof you are looking for) because they will be laughed out of the medical community even if their research is viable and proves their theory.  The medical industry is a very tight-nit community (but what group of academia isn’t?) and they fear their peers disapproval and self-induced suicide of their careers.  It also costs lots of money for individual independent studies to be conducted by private companies in the medical industry. Most have to obtain grants to fund their research. And let’s not forget that for most physicians and scientists, if they are going to spend 20 or more years studying a theory, they not only need money to do it, but need to feel that the research will pay off in the end, whether that be giving them a reputable name in the industry, obtain tenure and retirement from a university, or allowing them to publish a best-selling book regarding their work. It may seem selfish, but its true. Even doctors and scientists have to feel that their time and money is well spent, not just in the hopes that they will prove whether or not a vaccine or medication is safe or not.

And how many doctors and companies have been accused and proven to have lied about their research or falsified their data? Read here:  Their lies have damaged credible work on vaccine injuries. Doctors and researchers alike struggle to overcome the accusation of corruption and falsified data. Whistleblowers are coming forward though, slowly.  It will take time for enough “Edward Snowdens” of the medical industry to lay out the lies, corruption, and falsified data for the public, before the public will believe they were duped by Big Pharma and Big Government.

 What seem to be “rumors” (don’t get vaccinated, don’t eat GMOs, artificial sweeteners cause cancer, etc) that the public hears are often times medical professionals like myself who warn their family and friends against certain medications or vaccinations because we have “insider info” that we cannot release to the public in an official published document due to legally-binding Non-disclosure Agreements. But we want to prevent those we love from possible contamination and harm. We know what Big Pharmacy and the govt are doing is wrong, but there is not much we can do to change it without a complete upheaval of not only the medical industry, but government and government regulations. So it continues as a silent but growing problem.

Read Dr. Sherri Tenpenny’s work. You can also find her on Facebook. Read Dr. Jack Wolfson’s work.  Read Dr. Joseph Mercola’s work.  Go to  Go to  Get on the Inside Vaccines webpage and the National Vaccine Information Center’s website. Both are also on Facebook as well. They post research, papers, interviews, opinions all the time.  These are real doctors. Accredited, licensed, practicing medical physicians. They are not quacks. They are not crazy.  They are caring, dedicated, real people, who like me, still have their original belief of wanting to help people, not harm them, and better everyone’s lives instead of worrying about making a million dollars a year.  And there are more medical professionals coming forward every day with dissenting opinions against the pharmaceutical industry. And they aren’t just going to go away.  Whistleblowers, truth tellers, and witnesses are finally being heard, listened to, and believed, after years of being scolded, shunned, told they were crazy conspiracy theorists and had their careers ruined…..The truth will always come out…..and the truth shall set you free…..


Also, I will make the point that it is hard to find individual independent studies on vaccine safety or on vaccine injuries and links to disease and disability.  Most studies that you can find to read are studies that were performed by the company manufacturing the vaccine or medication in the first place. A bit biased no? Definitely smacks of Conflict of Interest. Of course Big Pharma will release reports to the public saying their product is perfectly safe, and spend good money to squash any dissenting or opposing reports- they’d be stupid not to! They want to make money, so they “reassure” the public that they have conducted studies that will attest to the glory and wonders of said medication or vaccine, just to boost sales. We see it everyday with large corporations and businesses. Of course a company is going to protect its reputation and profits, even if it is through dishonest means.

One instance that has never left my mind was being told by my supervisor, our lab manager, that the medical community and research companies would “never test marijuana nor allow marijuana to be tested because if the medical community showed that there was actual medicinal and health properties to pot, then pot would be legalized and end the drug war and the government’s cash flow. It would be come privatized, instead of a off-the-books cash cow for law enforcement, the judicial system, and the myriad of alphabet soup agencies that get “slush funds” through the war on drugs. If marijuana is shown to have medicinal properties, then everyone would grow it and use it, and then corporations and government would lose out on taxation and regulation of marijuana.”  HIS WORDS, I kid you not! This was my supervisor, someone who had been in the medical industry for nearly 30 YEARS and was a certified medical doctor saying this! And he is not the only doctor I have heard similar statements from over the years. It makes sense- tobacco and alcohol (and I’m not debating their positive or negative health effects here), are easy to obtain, anyone can grow their own tobacco or distill their own alcohol, all for personal use, and while taxed and regulated by the government, it is not a huge money-making industry, when compared to black market drugs.  And all you have to do is look back to when tobacco was run by corporations (plantations) in the 1800s or when gangs and the Mob (another form of corporation) had the bootlegging racket during Prohibition in the 1920s. They were billionaires while it was controlled and/or illegal. Now that anyone can grow tobacco or distill alcohol, it doesn’t net the same sky-high profits as it once did.

I find it funny that we would perform tests on methamphetamine, cocaine, and other “hardcore” drugs, specifically on rats and mice, to show the harmful effects and addiction properties of these illegal substances, but marijuana was taboo and no research would be permitted because the science might prove that pot was harmless and probably good natural medicine that would COST the government money!

  I’m not here to start a war on the use of pot with any of you, I believe that too, is a personal choice that you are free to make in regards to use (I personally don’t believe in recreational drug use)- the point I am making is that the medical community was willing to avoid testing anything that would lose them money because they couldn’t tax it, regulate it, or sell it!  I consider that very shady and underhanded.  

How many other drugs that might actually show promise have been put on the back burner because they wouldn’t net billions of dollars in profit each year?  Has a cure for cancer been derailed because it didn’t prove profitable for Big Pharma and the government? Or was something that could be easily obtained by the general public- like pot, or elderberry syrup, or other herbal remedies- not tested because it lacked Return On Investment opportunities? What about a cure for Alzheimers? Or HIV? Or Diabetes?  Whereas treating someone with cancer each step of the way nets Big Pharma a sure paycheck…smells like corruption to me.

If you want more proof of these companies and government lying to you, hiding the truth from you, all you need to do is look at what is going on in the news today. Merck, the pharmaceutical manufacturer of the MMR live-virus vaccine, paid for fake peer-reviewed medical journals back in 2009 (  and now are being sued in federal court because a whistleblower from the CDC came forward with information regarding fraudulent, mislabeled, misbranded MMR vaccines that caused two known mumps outbreaks and could very well be linked to the current measles outbreak (  Makes you wonder just how many other companies and if the CDC have done this in the past as well- pay for fake medical journals to be published to further their cause or sales numbers, claiming their products were “safe”…. And remember that medical review journals are PEER reviewed (by a panel of doctors who all belong to the Good Ole Boy Club) NOT independently tested and reviewed by unassociated companies or labs who aren’t being paid to give a favorable review.

Or let’s go back to the 1990’s and our military vets returning home with Gulf War Syndrome from the loads of vaccines they were forced to take and were not informed “what” they were being injected with or what cross interaction the vaccines might have:

But you can take government and Big Pharma corruption back even further than current-day news.  A perfect scenario of corruption, crime, lies, and intentional harm occurred between 1932 and 1972 with the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.  Read more here:

Read about the flu vaccine tied to fetal deaths here:

Here is a recent study showing that inflammation and illness at birth or soon after (whether it was a naturally-acquired infection or one from being injected by vaccines as an infant) has shown causation to Autism Spectrum Disorders. Read here:

And apparently the United States is not the only country to have concerns over vaccine safety:   or how about this story, on the very vaccine that I researched:

Now we have Glyphosate poisoning us:

And there’s stray virus strains being found in vaccines now:

Oh, how quickly we forget how many times these stories have come across our newspapers, our televisions, or the internet, and yet they seem to get swept under the rug as time passes and a new “crisis or epidemic” steals our attention. It’s time to see the history of patterns with the lies, the cover-ups, the corruption, that Big Pharma and the government have perpetuated over the years against innocent victims.


Your doctor and your pharmacist used to know each other, study with each other, hell, even play golf together. But the pharmaceutical sales rep came between them. Now, the sale rep shows up to the doctor’s office to convince him to prescribe the latest and greatest drug or vaccine to his patients without giving the doctor adequate knowledge of possible side effects or drug interactions, in exchange for payments or kickbacks. The pharmacist, while acutely aware of drug interactions because they are pharmaceutical chemists, does not have the lab, means, or money to test for interactions, allergies, or long term effects. They have been permanently separated by Big Pharma’s sales rep.


You aren’t seeing outbreaks of these diseases because of unvaccinated people You are seeing 1 of 2 things happening:  1-You are seeing freshly vaccinated people go through Virus Shedding which spreads the contagion among mostly vaccinated people who did not develop immunity when they got vaccinated (Vaccination and Immunity are two different things).Or 2- You are seeing evolution of the virus. In a world where we vaccinate too much, where we have antibacterial soap and wipes and sprays everywhere, where we take a million over-the-counter and prescription drugs that destroy our natural immune system, where we eat food-like substances and genetically modified food, instead of real food, you are now seeing the next step that viruses and bacteria naturally take by evolving and mutating to become a more virulent strain that vaccinations don’t stop. It is the same problem that is happening with super antibiotic resistant bacteria we have emerging now due to over-prescription of antibiotics and anti-bacterial products. We are just more aware of it because we are recording it and studying it. Yes, there is an issue of both illegal aliens and our own citizens bringing disease back into our country from other foreign countries (immigrants are often lacking in proper hygiene care and habits which leads to further spread of disease), migratory animals like birds and insects carry strains of disease with them as they migrate, and people illegally import animals not-native to our country which enables new diseases to reach our shores, but I still maintain that you are witnessing the evolution of disease. In a few years (maybe sooner), you will read stories where some medical journal has confirmed that new strains of viruses and bacteria are being found.  Just wait and see. 90% of your immune system lies in your stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Considering we eat foods loaded with sugar, salt, artificial fats, and laced with chemicals, hormones, carcinogens, steroids, pesticides, and GMO materials, its no wonder our immune systems are having trouble fighting off a simple common cold. Our water contains chlorine, fluoride, arsenic, lead, hormones, steroids, and prescription medications. Our air and soil are full of pollutants. We have destroyed the strength of our immune systems with our diets and our environment. Returning to a healthier, less-processed, less contaminated diet would do wonders for our immune system and the effects of disease on humans.  I am a firm believer that there is a cure for everything in nature and it starts with what we eat and drink

The only way your immune system will ever develop at the same pace as theses viruses and bacteria is for people to become infected with them to build up antibodies against them. We are so busy trying to eradicate ALL illnesses that we have forgotten that illness plays an important part in developing our immune systems. One of the earliest cases of humans being infected was when a mitochondria bacterium infected a human cell. The relationship became symbiotic millions of years ago and now mitochondria are part of our DNA and every cell in our body. They once were a bacterial invader, but are the cell’s powerhouse now. We cannot live without them now.  I remember reading several years ago a medical article where scientists had successfully tracked genetic markers that were of Black Plague Survivors and showed that these same genetic markers had been passed down to their descendants through DNA. The Black Plague was a nasty bacterial infection that wiped out almost 60% of Europe and Asia in the mid 1300s. No wonder it was called the Dark Ages! But survivors of plague showed genetic evolution of their immune systems that could be passed down to their descendants. Researchers also found that plague-survivor descendants (even up to today) showed marked improved immunity towards stomach illnesses, chest infections, cancers, and general gastrointestinal problems, as well as clear genetic markers in their DNA! They have a genetically evolved immune system compared to people with no plague-survivors in their genealogy. Read more here:


and here:

As a scientist, I question what next step of evolution are we as humans missing out on because we do not allow ourselves or our children to become infected and build antibodies naturally? Which is the definition of IMMUNITY.  Yes, illness can kill people, but it is generally a very small percentage of those who get infected. Yes that sucks, it is unfair, it is awful, and is sad to lose someone to disease, but it is part of the natural life cycle (God’s plan, if you will) that we are so busy interfering with through the use of medications and vaccinations.  Perhaps we have reached a point where medical achievements are no longer productive and good for humans, but are now hindering our natural biological progression and evolution. (And yes, you can be a scientist and believe in both evolution and a divine Creator at the same time. I’ll save that for another post though.)

The TRULY SCARY epidemic that we should be extremely concerned about (and is not in the media anywhere!) is NOT childhood disease, but rather HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS like Staph, tuberculosis, strep, MRSA, Shigella and others.  Statistically 1 our of every 25 people who visit or spend time in a hospital or doctor’s office will contact a disease that is just crawling on the walls, floors, and bedpans. 1 in 25! Just think about that for a minute before you freak out over less than 100 people infected with measles at Disneyland (that is probably a wild-type strain of measles which the vaccine would not be effective against in the first place.) (UPDATE-the  disneyland measles were caused by a freshly vaccinated child who was virus shedding and caused already vaccinated children to contract measles, which we are finding is usually the case when there is an “outbreak”.)   It’s more dangerous to GO TO the hospital!


All I ask is that people do the research themselves before making a decision whether to vaccinate or not. It IS a choice. If you are a truly free person, then no one can force you to put anything in your body or do anything to your body, or that of your children, without your consent. The Nazis happily (and horrifically) forced Jews and Christians to get serial numbers tattooed on them and then medically and surgically experimented on them. All against their will and consent.  Well, we all know how that turned out in the history books.  The point with vaccines is that you have a choice whether to vaccinate or not.  No one should force you to take medications or receive vaccinations.  We have a law in this country where you are allowed to REFUSE medical treatment and medications (including vaccines) its a law for a reason.  Read The Case for Putting Medical & Vaccine Freedom in the Constitution:

Not  even government should have that power. If you decide not to vaccinate, you shouldn’t be jailed, sued, blamed, harassed, or ridiculed for your choice.  The argument that “if vaccines worked as well as government claims, then your vaccinated child has nothing to fear from my unvaccinated child” is a true statement.  If the vaccine has created anti-bodies in a vaccinated person to prevent them from contracting the disease, then please explain how vaccinated people are contracted the very disease they have been vaccinated against. I will tell you how- it is because not everyone who is vaccinated is completely immune from contracting the disease (they develop Resistance to the Vaccine). They did not develop IMMUNITY. Some contract the disease they were being vaccinated against because their immune system could not handle the vaccine or because the vaccine was old and degraded. Sometimes its because it is a live virus strain they were given, which causes virus shedding and makes the person contagious to everyone around them after receiving the vaccine. Some people can contract the disease and be a carrier for the disease,(asymptomatic carriers) having never suffered any signs or symptoms of the disease they carry, save for what a bloodtest could determine (see Typhoid Mary). And it used to be one vaccination was all that was needed to spur artificial immunity, but now a person must receive 4, 5, 6, or more shots over a span of a few years during childhood, and then get booster shots as adults. If these vaccines worked as well as the medical community claims, then you should only need 1 shot. After all, you only have to get chicken pox, measles, mumps, etc, once as a child to develop natural lifelong immunity.

Too many people rely on vaccines as a 100% fail-proof protection plan from disease. They’re not fail-proof. A few hundred people world-wide contracting a disease (whether vaccinated against the disease or not) is not really a call for paranoia or to panic and force vaccinations on everyone, not even if the numbers reach a few thousand. The 1 in a million chance that your or your child will contract a disease because they were not vaccinated against it, is just that- 1 in a million. There are 7 BILLION people on this planet! You have a better chance of winning the lottery, than contracting a childhood disease and being disabled or dying from it.   The same goes for those who were vaccinated and perhaps did not build a proper immunity against the disease, or are now able to be carriers for that disease.  Risk, albeit small, will always be there.  The risk of catching measles, Ebola, diphtheria, pertussis, or other “childhood diseases” or “travel diseases” pales in comparison for “riskiness”, when driving or riding in an automobile/vehicle will be the riskiest and most dangerous thing you do on a daily basis in your life. Deaths in a car wreck far outweigh deaths from measles or Ebola or other diseases. Heart Disease and Cancer still take the crown for deaths per year, so a better diet and some exercise would be better for your health than getting a vaccination against a disease that most likely won’t kill you (provided you treat the symptoms) and will only make you sick and miserable for a week or two, if on the off-chance you even contract the disease.  As far as pregnant women, we have seen mothers already vaccinated, still have their unborn baby contract the disease even though the mother is supposedly immune.  Its a risk, but a small one at that.  Watch VAXXED the Movie:

When I did  volunteer internships for several medical clinics and hospitals, I found the common cold and influenza, and diabetes regularly. Occasionally I would come across patients that had strep, bronchitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, a variety of common STDs, and once in a blue moon I saw someone with tetanus, impetigo, or septicemia from an untreated cut. I came across chicken pox once and the child was absolutely fine and enjoying a couple weeks off from school. I saw 2 cases of shingles in elderly people, but after careful study, we found that their shingles was greatly exasperated by an already present autoimmune disorders and vitamin deficiencies and was easily calmed down by correcting their prevalent health issues, vitamin deficiency and diets. I never came across measles, Ebola, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, mumps, or meningitis in patients. All these “scary” illnesses that hospitals have to set up quarantine for and make reports to their local health departments and to the CDC…..illnesses everyone are terrified of….and we never encountered them.  I’m not denying these disease are out there, I am just making the argument that they are not as rampant as media and government would have you believe. It is because the disease were already in decline years ago, and better medical care, hygiene and diet have improved overall health around the world.  Vaccines didn’t eradicate the disease and save us. We built up natural immunity and improves our standard of living. This can be seen in third world countries where there are still outbreaks of measles or diphtheria or cholera or ebola. Its not due to lack of vaccines. It is because these people still live in a state of squalor- defecating and urinating in the same water source that they drink from and bathe in. They do not bathe regularly or wash their hands as a normal daily habit.  They eat improperly stored foods and improperly cooked foods leading to food-borne illnesses and stress on the immune system.  They have limited diets and have vitamin deficiencies.  It has nothing to do with lack of vaccination.  The WHO (world health organization) along with missionaries, church groups, and other health workers have diligently been vaccinating the unwashed masses of third world countries, and yet they have the outbreaks of disease. Its because of the lack of proper hygiene and nutrition.  If you  practice proper hygiene and have a good nutritional diet, you have an extremely low chance of encountering these diseases and an even lower rate of contracting them. It comes down to standard of living, not vaccination.


The 1933 theory on “herd immunity” has since been dis-proven and is an antiquated notion. Herd mentality though, is still prevalent in society.  Everyone loves to make the argument that “we should all be vaccinated for the safety of the whole”.  Oh Really? If cutting off one of your legs would prevent people from getting purple spots on their face (with the slim chance of Purple Spots causing death in 1 out of hundred-thousand people), would you cut your leg off?   Probably not, especially if contracting Purple Spots was rare, and even rarer, caused disability or death. Most people are not that selfless and would keep their leg. But the real question is- is it even fair to ask the person to cut off their leg for only a slim chance at prevention?  Most certainly not. That is what you have going on with vaccination.  There is already a slim chance that you or your child will contract one of these diseases, and even slimmer chance that you will have a horrid complication or death from having contracted the disease.  It is not a big enough margin to force others to vaccinate themselves.  People seem to forget that Darwin was right- it is the survival of the fittest. But not just in strength or speed or being healthy.  It is also in the selfishness of wanting to survive by what decisions we make. Yes, the medical community wants to improve the health and well being of everyone they can (after all physicians take the Hippocratic Oath to Do No Harm- which tells me Big Pharma is breaking their oaths with their products on a daily basis), but never confuse helping the human race with the inherent ingrained individual trait of self-survival and preservation over others. Humans are animals too and we will always choose self-survival first. We cannot help it. Our brains are programmed that way.   If I choose not to vaccinate myself or my child because there are chemicals or fetal tissue issues with the vaccination, or the risk of allergic reaction outweighs the benefits of the vaccination, yes I am being selfish. I am insuring the survival of myself or my child by not exposing ourselves to the chemicals or other problems/allergic reactions with vaccines. Am I risking the “rest of the herd” because I did not vaccinate? No more so than they are risking me by choosing to vaccinate and contaminate their bodies, immune system, damage their DNA and the genetic pool with pollutants and chemical,and cause virus shedding! No more than the risk that they WERE vaccinated and still did not develop proper immunity to the disease and contracted the disease or can now be a carrier for the disease (asymptomatic carriers or resistance to the vaccine).

My father had measles as a child and was fine. My mother had mumps and no ill-side effects. My brother and I both had Chicken Pox and were fine. My grandfather survived Rheumatic Fever and had no ill effects.  My husband endured Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever from a tick bite as a child and he has the “immune system of Zeus”, according to our family physician. I was born 6 weeks early as a premie and spent 77 days in the NICU in an incubator on lifesupport. *I* was one of those babies who could not be vaccinated until much older and was “at risk” of childhood diseases the media is warning you about. My mother never demanded that other people get vaccinated to reduce risk to me.  I never contracted any childhood disease as a child, save for Chicken Pox in the 3rd grade. Our “herd” survived childhood diseases and seem to have better immune systems for it. We all see vaccinations as a choice. I see this as no different than choosing not to smoke tobacco products, not to take drugs, not to expose myself or my children unnecessarily to chemicals, pollution, or GMO products, and not to vaccinate. The beauty is that it is my choice. And you don’t  get to make that choice for me or have government force me to vaccinate! Tyranny will not eradicate disease or make you safer. 


The price of freedom is understanding and accepting that people will make decisions you don’t agree with that you have to accept, whether that be to not vaccinate or to do drugs, or to eat Big Macs everyday. That is THEIR choice, YOUR choice, MY choice, because we are all FREE.  For those who say “well your unvaccinated child made my child sick, so you should be blamed, harassed, sued, jailed, beaten, hung, etc. etc. etc.” let me say this, Prove It.  Prove that my child made your child sick, and that your child did not in fact become sick just from breathing air that could contain diseased droplet particles that could have come from anyone anywhere, or from your trip to your local grocery store or doctor’s office or school or daycare, or from someone sneezing or coughing on you and your clothing as you pass them on the street, or even been contracted from one of the vaccinated children who is now an asymptomatic carrier for the disease or is virus shedding and showing no signs or symptoms of illness.  Patient Zero is often difficult to find. Virus and bacteria particles can hang in the air for over an hour and live on surfaces for days, even weeks.  You could have been exposed to a disease that someone coughed out a week prior, and not even know it!  Think about all those door handles and grocery carts, and money you touch on a daily basis that all are filthy and hold virus and bacteria particles!  Perhaps if it was the other way around and my child became sick from you child, but my child’s symptoms were delayed in showing due to a healthier immune system than your child. Or perhaps your child was freshly vaccinated recently and they are in the virus shedding stage that makes them highly contagious, and my child contracts a disease from your child?  Then what? Shall I point the loaded gun at you and condemn you for allowing you or your child’s microscopic infectious particles to exit your body and enter mine or my child’s?  Not very nice when you think about the tables being turned, is it?  Do people not see or understand how utterly ridiculous that is?  The point is, you cannot punish someone for being human and for breathing or living. You cannot punish someone because they believe getting sick and then recovering from it promotes a healthier and stronger natural immune system than someone’s immune system who was artificially boosted by a vaccine. People do not intentionally make other people sick. Its random and accidental.  Not getting vaccinated is not the same as committing murder.  People who do not vaccinate are not “intentionally not vaccinating” to intentionally risk the whole population or “herd”.  They don’t choose to not vaccinate so they can sit back and laugh when your child gets sick. They are not evil master-minds who have a global plan to infect everyone with measles or polio or Ebola. They are just protecting their own health and that of their offspring naturally. (The doctor that was suspected of intentionally mailing anthrax in the mail as a biological weapon back in 2001, before he committed suicide, was vaccinated against the anthrax he used…and he was a doctor, a vaccinologist, and he worked for the government! But one bad-crazy-apple is not a reason to compare normal parents who are against vaccines to this nutjob.)   How long until everyone is suing each other or trying to put each other in jail because they caught the common cold or got a headache and don’t want to go to work? How long till everyone is taking advantage of the hysteria to get laws passed that allow me to sue you because you sneezed on me?  Or coughed in my general direction? Because that is the road you are headed down….

Too many people are willing to play the role of the next Hitler to force vaccinations on people.  But where does it stop? Next they will be forcing you to wear certain clothes, eat certain foods, do certain activities, take certain medications, have certain medical procedures, etc. etc. etc. It is control over your life and your freedom, which no one can ever be allowed to dictate your freedom. It is control were are talking about here. Not preventing disease or eradicating it. We are talking about freedom and people who want to control your freedom….your body….your mind….What you allow to be done to one person, will eventually be done to you and your family.  Its a slippery slope like that…..

The people who want to sue, jail, segregate, flog, impale, or hang unvaccinated people (am I being sarcastic? Just look at pro-vaxxer comments on the internet…these people foam at the mouth like rabid dogs when a person expresses their desire to not vaccinate!) They are just perpetuating hatred and bigotry.  We stopped segregating people back in the 1960s based on the color of their skin. What do you want the unvaccinated people to do? Get a tattoo showing they are unvaccinated? Round them all up into Ghettos? How about Death Camps for them because they refuse to take vaccines?  Where does it stop? Sounds too much like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews to me…..sounds too much like fascism and tyranny. This has become a 3-ring circus with pro-vaxxers and non-vaxxers about to go nuclear over this issue. There is no reason for any of it. Freedom of choice is the only option. Let people live their lives the way they want. There will always be the risk of getting sick (just as you are at risk or being mugged while walking down the street).  No amount of vaccines or medications will stop that. Life is Risk. Learn to accept it and move on.

Diseases will NEVER be eradicated from our planet, short of apocalypse. Disease is a natural part of life. We need to stop being fearful of disease.  It is part of the natural cycle of life. We will never eradicate every disease from the planet because viruses and bacteria will just continue to grow, evolve, and mutate. We will never stop that.

 We DO need to stop being scared and using panic to force lifestyle choices on people.  We need the medical industry to conduct more thorough testing and research on vaccines and medications before bringing them to market.  We need to conduct better tests for drug interactions and conflicts.  We need to conduct better studies on allergic reactions to medications and vaccinations. We need to do studies (and make public the research) on people who have been injured or killed by medications and/or vaccines.  I want to see an epidemiological study done on vaccines and medications.  I want to see studies done on populations that are vaccinated versus populations that are not vaccinated.  I want to see studies done on risks and benefits of following the current vaccine schedule as laid out by the CDC versus spacing vaccines out or postponing them till a later age or reducing the schedule amount entirely. I want to see studies done on drug interactions for the most commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals not only in children, adolescents, and adults, but in our elderly population who consume more prescription medications than any other age category. I want to see studies on how GMO foods, medicines, and other products that we consume, ingest, or use on a daily basis are effecting our lives and our very DNA! I want to see studies on risks or fluoridation of water and its effects on the population not only physically, but mentally! I want to see more proof and evidence that all this medical technology is actually performing GOOD things for humans, and not harmful effects. I want proof. I want evidence. I want science that unbiased people can stand behind and gladly support with no conflict of interest or government dollars lining their pockets. This is the only way we can improve science and health.  Science isn’t exact, but it doesn’t have to be kept in the dark by Big Pharma profits and stock holdings.


For those who wish to vaccinate, good for you. And I mean that in a friendly way. It is your choice. Vaccines can and do save lives. Vaccines can be good medicine. And I believe that in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s that medical research was unbiased and true to its purpose.  I believe at that time, there was not the government influence and corporate corruption that started slipping into the industry until the 1970s. I believe that there once was a time where the medical industry truly wanted to help people over greed of profits…..but that day has long since passed.   Are all vaccines bad? We don’t know. Only time will tell.  If I was in the middle of an outbreak (a true pandemic, not a mere 100 people on the other side of the country or globe that are infected) and I felt that my child or myself were at risk, I would vaccinate, but only after proper research and understanding of the disease…I would not run in a panic to get a shot because there is a case of measles 2,000 miles away from me. I wouldn’t get a shot even if the case was 50 miles from me. Not unless I felt it was truly needed after I was properly educated and informed.  If one of us was bitten by a rabid animal, we would get the rabies vaccine without a seconds thought. But for now we selectively vaccinate in our family. We are nowhere near a ground zero outbreak zone that warrants us running to the hospital to get a jab in the arm.  If you do decide to vaccinate, I hope you will do your research first, consider your own and your family’s medical history, consider any allergies or allergy-prone indicators, before choosing to vaccinate. I hope you will review the risks of vaccinations before vaccinating.  I hope you will read all medical pamphlets and manufacturer’s inserts for any medications you are prescribed or purchase over-the-counter.  I hope you will get second and third opinions from physicians before considering vaccines, medications, or medical procedures. I hope you will make an educated and informed decision and not just do “what you are told” by government, schools, or your doctor. Always question authority.   I hope you will understand and appreciate your freedom to choose to vaccinate as you understand and appreciate mine and other’s freedom to choose not to. I hope you will consider my information in regards as to how the medical research industry and Big Pharma really works before you sign up for the next new drug or new vaccine.  I hope you will educate others on the freedom to choose when it comes to medical procedures, medications, and vaccinations. I hope you will remember the Golden Rule of “Do unto others as you would have them do to you” in all aspects of your life, not just medical decisions.  You don’t have to be religious or spiritual to respect your fellow man’s personal decisions or lifestyle.  I hope that if you do choose to vaccinate, that you will choose to spread the vaccinations out over a period of time and not get “combination vaccines” where it will be harder to determine which vaccine caused an allergic reaction if one does occur.  I hope that if you do vaccinate you will not only get individual vaccinations at separate times, spread out over several months or even years, but I hope you will carefully document your own or your child’s reaction(s) if any, to the vaccination so that better research can be conducted by people like me.  Having better facts, figures, and reaction data from patients who receive vaccinations or prescribed medications, can greatly aid researchers in “fixing” vaccines or producing better medical products that perhaps one day will not have as many chemicals in them, will not be as allergenic, and will not be contaminated with fetal tissue or GMOs.  There are still physicians and researchers out there who want to truly help people and make life better.  We are not all seeking fame and fortune with our research.


Before you call me a hypocrite, let me say that I have been at war with myself for years over whether to vaccinate or not.  We are a conservative Traditional Catholic family and do not believe in the use of fetal tissue for testing or research purposes.  I have read tons of studies, research, and opinions both for and against vaccines. I am aware of all the chemicals in vaccines as purifying agents and preservatives.  I understand the higher risks of a live virus vaccine being given to my child over a heat-killed strain.   I was a selective-vaccinator with my child for years. I think I became a selective-vaxxer when a childhood friend of mine (who was speaking, hearing, acting normal at home and in school) received a DTP vaccine (before it became the DTap Vaccine), and later that night had a fever spike to 106F and had a seizure. She was rushed back to the hospital, where her doctor determined she was having an allergic reaction to the mercury (thimerosal is a mercury-derived preservative) in the vaccine she was given.  Her fever and seizure permanently damaged her hearing in both ears and her speech was effected. She went from being a happy little girl to a child that was put in special needs classes, all because of 1 shot.

Then, as a research scientist, after I began seeing side effects and death in the animals I tested medications and vaccines on, I began to wonder if the benefits outweighed the risks. I personally spaced my son’s vaccinations (the ones I chose to allow him to have) out over several years. I did not let him get combo vaccinations all in one day. I spread out everything so I could monitor him for reactions.  Most pro-vaxxers are quick to say “why chance getting the measles or polio or Ebola?”  I ask, why risk having an allergic reaction (which is becoming much more commonplace) to a vaccine for a disease that you already only stand a 1 in a million chance of contracting? Its called Vaccine Injury. And it is now more common to be vaccine injured and have life-long allergies and injuries, than to die from these so called deadly childhood diseases!  Think that one through!

This very thing  happened to ME:  I developed Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, know as Hugh’s Syndrome, a blood clotting disorder, that has ties back to the Tetanus shot given in the 1970s and 1980s.   Medical experiment confirming:  and here:

It is a lifelong disorder that could kill me. I have to take a daily blood thinner medication for life and I had to have a blood clot filter surgically implanted in my Inferior Vena Cava to prevent blood clots from travelling to my lungs and killing me. This medical implant now prevents me from getting pregnant safely.  The filter must be surgically removed before I can have any more pregnancies. I have been robbed of my motherhood and further children. I was vaccine-injured. And it could kill me. My brother has the exact same syndrome, also caused by the Tetanus Shot. We both have had emergency surgeries and hospitalizations because of the Hugh’s Syndrome and we both almost died.  Yes, Lockjaw is no fun and blood poisoning is a possibility should you not have a current Tetanus Shot and step on a rusty nail (which is a myth- you actually pick up tetanus from working in soil that is contaminated, so watch out gardeners-wear gloves!) , but Hugh’s Syndrome is FOREVER.  Think about that before you vaccinate. 

My son and I both also have seasonal allergies and asthma, which our Asthma & Allergy Specialists have admitted to us in their office behind closed doors, was caused by being over-vaccinated in our lives.  Read that again- a medical doctor who specializes in allergies and asthma has advised us AGAINST getting vaccines or further vaccination because it will perpetuate our current condition. Once my son had to begin a daily allergy and asthma medication and treatment plan, I became an ANTI-VAXXER.  Now my son is vaccine injured from even the selective and well-spaced out vaccines I consented to him having! Even my careful planning, research, and scheduling, still lead to him being injured!  Thank God he wasn’t injured with autism, seizures, cancer, or death!


The beautiful thing about our medical community now, is that should you contract one of these childhood diseases, the risk of disability or death is very, very low compared to 100 years ago. Now if you are sick and have a high fever, you can go to the hospital and they treat you for it. The fever no longer causes brain damage or kills you because doctors are able to treat their patients and keep them safe while their body naturally fights off these diseases (yes there are rare exceptions to this). Most of these diseases only cause some discomfort and minor pain, both of which can be remedied with over-the-counter common everyday pain relievers like acetaminophen and ibuprofen. They are cheap, easy to obtain, and work great. Also, remember that it is ONLY childhood diseases that we pre-exposure vaccinate for.  We vaccinate for Rabies, Ebola, Anthrax, etc, AFTER risk of exposure or contraction, not before. 

Yes, I know there are VERY rare instances of disability and death caused by these childhood diseases, but that is certainly no reason to mandate vaccines.  The argument of vaccinating healthy children (and risking their health in the process) to protect children with autoimmune disorders is also ridiculous. If your child has an autoimmune disorder, no amount of vaccines are going to prevent them from getting sick. They’d have to live in a plastic bubble to be 100% safe. We see this with HIV/AIDS patients, they often die of pneumonia or other infections for which there are vaccines for, proving that vaccinating children will not protect children with autoimmune disorders. I was one of those children with a compromised immune system as a baby. I was born 10 weeks early!  I couldn’t receive vaccines because I was a premie, but my parents did not create hysteria and put me in a bubble to protect me from a slim chance of contracting a disease that would greatly harm me or kill me. They didn’t demand other people get vaccinated just to reduce my risk. I’m here today, a grown woman and mother of a beautiful son.  I no longer work in the medical industry.  I couldn’t stomach knowing my research was not helping people or preventing bad vaccines and medications from being sold on the market. I couldn’t take being a patsy or a fool anymore. I couldn’t stand the corruption and lies.  I had to walk away.

My child has received some (very few in comparison to what the recommended vaccine schedule is) shots but not others, based on my research and based on that our family is Catholic and we do not believe in the use of aborted fetal tissue for medical research. My life as a research scientist and seeing negative side effects up close and personal on animals and people also drives my decision.  I am aware of the chemicals as purifying agents and preservatives in the vaccines. I am aware of the higher rates of reactions with live virus vaccines versus heat-killed strains. I have spoken with many people who were injured or their children were injured by medications or vaccines. I base my decision off of a life-time of research and study, not some willy-nilly celebrity or some blog I read online. I have made an informed and educated decision. So I have moral, medical, philosophical, and religious reasons for choosing to not vaccinate. And as the years roll by, and more evidence comes to light regarding vaccinations and medications, I find myself wishing I had not vaccinated my son at all. We both suffer from vaccine-induced injuries that will cause a lifetime of required medication and treatment.  I worry what longterm effects we do not yet know about will rear their ugly head when he hits puberty….and then again as an adult….. It keeps me awake at night…..I have since decided to stop all vaccinations with my son and for our family.


I applaud anyone who does their research and has enough concern for their well being and that of their child to question anything “government approved”. Remember, freedom of choice and to live your life the way you want comes first over the interests of the entire population.  Mob rule should never rule the day. Always question authority…..they do not always have your best interests at heart.

You can watch the BOUGHT movie here regarding vaccines and vaccine injuries, as well as government cover-up.  This is a fabulous movie that needs to be shared everywhere!  (I am not a paid endorser of this movie, I just found it incredible informative). UPDATE- Vaxxed, from conspiracy to catastrophe, a new movie is out- learn more here:

Much love and freedom,

Food & Water Storage Conditions


What conditions should I store my food and water storage prepper supplies in?

Good question!  You must first understand that light destroys nutrients and shelf-life.  Oxygen also causes nutrient decay and increases risk of food-borne illness due to bacterial growth. Reducing oxygen levels in your food with Oxygen Absorbers is the best way to maintain food quality and shelf life.  Temperature plays a role as well, too hot and nutrients and proteins will be damaged, too cold and product quality and taste will suffer.  Pests can eat up your food storage and spread disease.  Moisture can cause bacterial and mold growth as well as rust to form on metal cans or canning lids.

So what conditions do I need?

Someplace COOL (around 6oF is perfect)

Someplace DARK (no natural or artificial light shining on your food storage)

Someplace DRY (no moisture to cause rust or bacterial or mold growth)

Someplace PEST FREE (no bugs or rodents to destroy and contaminate your food and water)

Storage Conditions

There are six conditions to be aware of when storing food for emergency preparedness food storage, or outdoor recreation.  The foods being referred to in this post are shelf-stable freeze-dried, dehydrated, dried commodities.  Optimal storage conditions can also be applied to wet pack:  retort, MRE’s, canned goods, and other specialty longer term wet pack foods.

  • Temperature– This is the primary factor affecting the storage life of foods.  The cooler the better. 40 degrees-50 degrees would be great. Room temperature (65 degrees-72 degrees) or below is generally fine.  Avoid above 90 degrees for extended periods of time. The longer food is exposed to very high temperatures the shorter the edible life and the faster the degeneration of nutritional value.  Note:  There are some “foods” available for emergency preparedness that are known as “emergency food or ration bars.”  These products are generally referred to as “life raft bars” because they were originally designed for life rafts and can withstand high heat for extended periods of time.  They primarily consist of white sugar and white flour, and were not meant to be the sole source of nutrition for a long period of time.
  • Moisture– The lower the better.  Moisture can deteriorate food value rapidly and create conditions that promote the growth of harmful organisms.  The moisture level contained in foods varies depending on the type of product it is.  Have foods in moisture barrier containers (metal, glass) in high humidity areas. Note:  Mylar bags or plastic buckets are not a long term (over 3 years) moisture or oxygen barrier. The moisture and gas transmission rates through these materials vary depending upon the specifications of the manufacturers.  Plastic absorbs gases, moisture, and odors.  Note 2:  Be careful where you store dry foods in cans.  Very cold flooring or any condition where there is a dramatic temperature differential may cause a build up of condensation inside the container.
  • Oxygen – A high oxygen environment causes oxidation, which leads to discoloration, flavor loss, odors, rancidity and the breakdown of nutritional value in foods. It also allows insects to feed on dried food reserves. Without oxygen, insects cannot live, nor can aerobic (oxygen dependent) organisms. Whole grain and beans have natural oxygen barriers and can store for long periods of time in low humidity and if free from infestation. All other processed grains, vegetables, fruits, etc. must be in a very reduced (2% or less) oxygen environment for long term storage.  Note:  Mylar bags or plastic buckets are not a long term (over 3 years) moisture or oxygen barrier. The moisture and gas transmission rates through these materials vary depending upon the specifications of the manufacturers.  Plastic absorbs gases, moisture, and odors.  The best long term storage containers are glass and metal.
  • Infestation – Examples include rodents, insects in all their stages of growth, mold, microorganisms, and any other creatures that get hungry – large or small.  The proper packaging and storage conditions are required to control infestation and not allow critters to both get into the food, or have the necessary environment for them to flourish if they are sealed into a container – such as in the form of eggs or spores.
  • Handling – Rough handling can not only damage the food itself, but it can also adversely effect and compromise the integrity of the container in which the food is stored.  Glass of course can break; any pouched item can develop pin holes, tears, or cracks.  The seams on buckets and cans can be tweaked, twisted, or damaged to allow oxygen to enter the container.
  • Light – Food should not be stored in direct sunlight.  Both for the potential of high temperature, and its affect on food value.  Sunlight directly on stored foods can destroy nutritional value and hasten the degeneration of food quality, taste, and appearance.  Foods packed in light barrier containers do not pose a problem with the affects of light.


Life of Stored Food


This is a generalized table of how long food will last if properly stored (no light, no heat, no oxygen, no bugs, etc) and kept at 60F or lower (but not freezing).




CANNING (STOREBOUGHT OR HOME CANNED)- 3 TO 5 YEARS, (possibly longer if stored properly)




Prepping at the Dollar Store

Why Prep?


Why Prep?

Have you ever wondered how you would take care of yourself and your family if you lost your job? How about if there was a bad hurricane? Tornado? Rioting? Civil Unrest? Economic Collapse? Martial Law? Pandemic? Even Zombies?

If these thoughts have crossed your mind or haunted your dreams lately, then you might be considering becoming a Prepper.

Have you already started stocking up on extra canned goods, bottles of water, pet food, first aid supplies and self-defense weapons? Then you are already a Prepper.

Have you looked into solar and wind options for heating/cooling/powering your home and appliances? Have you considered buying land and keeping livestock and a garden? Want to live off-grid?  Then you are a Homestead Prepper.

Have you taken survival classes, learned the arts of bushcraft, fire making, escape & evasion? Are you comfortable living in the woods for a long period of time, living off the land, and using Mother Nature for all your provisions, protection, shelter, and camouflage? Then you are a Survivalist.

All and any of these labels means you are Self-Reliant or want to become Self-Reliant.

Many folks enter into prepping because they have this unexplainable feeling in their gut that something is not “right” with the world. That things are slowly getting more restrictive, less-free, more expensive and more intrusive in our private lives. That unsettling feeling is your 6th sense telling you to prepare.

For others, prepping and being self-reliant is comforting because it is a return to a simpler life much like what our grandparents and great-grandparents experienced (and we remember being told through family-handed down stories). It is a way to exit the “Rat Race” and ensure all their basic needs are met without all the hustle and bustle of big city life.  It is a way of reducing stress and anxiety in their lives, because they are providing for themselves and their families by means of a garden, food & water storage, re-learning basic DIY skills, and saving money by not spending it frivolously.  It is also a sense of accomplishing something with purpose .  It has its rewards and self-gratification.

Whatever your reasons for prepping, rest easy in the fact that your time, money and efforts have not been wasted.  Whether its a natural disaster, extended unemployment, or a true SHTF scenario, you will probably use your preps and skills at some point in your life, or at least be able to pass them down to your children for their future security.


Quick thoughts on Gamma Seal Lids


Gamma Seal Lids– those nifty air-tight lids that fit onto 5-gallon buckets by way of a gasket seal, used for food storage by most Preppers. Now they come in awesome colors so you can color-code your food and water storage as well as your Prepper supplies!

Quick thought on color coding:

I like to use the colored lids to separate my supplies so they are easily accessible and easily located when needed. Make sure to label your buckets with contents and date you stored them.

BLUE lid– use this one to store your water filters and water purification items. Put your water treatment tablets in there.

RED lid– red is a universal color for first aid, so store your first aid supplies, medicine, essential oils, bandages, creams, and other medical related items in this bucket.

GREEN lid– I like to think of green when it comes to storing my NukeBioChem (NBC) items. Put your gas masks and filters in here. Add in decontamination kits, wipes, rad dosage meters, and pandemic supplies. On the flip side, you could use Green to signify your bucket of vegetables or heirloom seeds for gardening.

WHITE lid– you could make this color your beverage bucket. Put hot cocoa, tea bags, coffee, kool aid packs, and other drink mixes in here. You could also make this bucket your hygiene bucket since White signifies cleanliness. Put wipes, toilet paper, soap, sanitizers, toothbrushes, wash clothes, toothpaste, and other hygiene items in this bucket.

YELLOW lid– you could use this color for your grains. Store wheat, oats, rice, and other cereal grains including flour and yeast. You could also use this color as a baby/kids bucket, storing baby supplies, diapers, formula, wipes, clothing, etc that babies and small children need. A third option is to use this color to signify your butters, cheeses, oils, and fats that you need to store for cooking and baking.

ORANGE lid– making this a fruit bucket or fruit & veggie bucket is handy. This could also be a miscellaneous bucket to store personal items, self defense items, or whatever you desire.

BLACK lid– I like to use this color for my meats and proteins, including beans and legumes. I also like to store spices and can openers with this color.

You can organize your food storage in any way that you like; the possibilities are endless. The main point is to make sure you can easily recognize what your stored in each bucket so it is easy to locate and use when the time comes. It also helps your family, especially younger members, find what they need because it is color coded.

Just remember to label and date your buckets and practice rotating your food storage so it does not get wasted through spoilage. And don’t forget the bucket and bung nut wrench opener!

You can find these lids all over the Internet for sale, but I have found that Emergency Essentials has the best prices.

Happy food storage!

How to spot a Psychopath

How to Spot Psychopaths

Hiring a contractor or babysitter? Or doing some online dating? Don’t rely on your “sixth sense” to keep you safe.

We’d all like to think that we have some sort of sixth sense that will warn us when we’re truly in danger, some animal instinct that raises the hair on the backs of our necks, gives us goose bumps and sends us running in the opposite direction.

Retired FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole, Ph.D., is here to tell us the truth about trusting our intuition in perilous situations. In “Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Feelings Betray Us,” she outlines how to protect yourself and your loved ones from bad people. Her tips are especially useful if you’re thinking of doing some online dating, hiring a contractor/nanny/assistant, or letting your child’s coach or another parent give him a ride home.

It’s perilous out there, and you could just crawl under the covers (with your entire family) and never come out. Or you can learn from O’Toole’s 28 years of experience as an FBI agent, 15 of them as a profiler with the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU)—the work popularized by shows like CBS’s “Criminal Minds.” O’Toole worked on such cases as the Green River Killer, the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and the hunt for the Unabomber. This and other experience interrogating wrongdoers taught her how to read people.

It also taught her that she can’t eyeball a serial killer or a rapist or a psychopath—no one can. Even if you pride yourself on being a good judge of character, crime stats show that the majority of people are wrong…and often.

In the 1997 bestseller “The Gift of Fear: And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence,” security consultant Gavin de Becker had some compelling anecdotes about women who smelled danger, owned their fear, and walked away with their lives. Oprah dedicated an entire show in 2008 to celebrating the 10th anniversary of de Becker’s popular book on how fear can save your life.

As empowering as it would be to have that survival sixth sense, O’Toole makes the case for being prepared rather than jeopordizing your safety by trying to “wing it.” O’Toole is not one to go with her gut. “People are adamant about holding on to the idea that they have exquisite instincts,” she says. “But how many times do you really think ‘I better listen to my stomach and do what my stomach says’? Have you really had success with doing that?”

Your judgment can be thrown off by factors like fear, stress, fatigue, alcohol or drugs, she says. “What if your inner radar was off that day?” O’Toole cites many hair-raising cases she’s familiar with from her time at the FBI. Rather than relying on your fear, what she calls her SMART system (a sound method of assessing and recognizing trouble) is a series of interviewing techniques meant to be empowering. Using the type of questioning she teaches to law enforcement officials, you can learn to evaluate contractors, boyfriends, nannies and the like. “This gives people the ability to be their own profiler, in everyday life,” O’Toole says.

Scenario 1: You’re hiring a contractor to work on your house. He’ll be there with you and your family, and sometimes when you’re not home.

Having someone come into your home with access to you (especially if you live alone) and your things is often such a casual decision,” O’Toole says. Instead, treat your first meeting like an interview. “Extracting info and reading people is a process,” says O’Toole. “You want to know if their response to criticism is going to be disproportionate. Is this the kind of person that’s just going to go ballistic?”

Among her interviewing tips: Plan the interview, be calm, and set some goals for it. You want to build a rapport and not babble on, hijacking the interview. Take it slow and “listen between the lines,” says O’Toole. Phrase questions in an open-ended, non-judgmental way: “When you’ve worked with someone and there was a problem, how did you deal with it?” Or “If someone wasn’t happy with your work, how did you deal with that?” If he avoids answers, gets defensive (“Why would you ask me such a thing?”), or changes the subject, take note.

O’Toole suggests writing down your evaluation of a person, and looking for clusters of these troubling behaviors, not just a single incident, and trying to put them in context before you make a decision.

Scenario 2: You’ve recovered from a bad breakup and are ready to date—online.

Brad’s profile catches your eye right off. He describes himself as “fit and good-looking,” and says, “I’m looking for the perfect soulmate I can love forever, someone who will love and take care of me.” O’Toole writes about the case of William Michael Barber (the “Don Juan of con”) who romanced victims via dating sites, married them, cleaned out their bank accounts, and then disappeared.

However, for would-be daters afraid that every Mr. Right is Mr. Scarypants, experts estimate psychopaths as comprising about 1 percent of the general population. Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of empathy or remorse, and by shallow emotions, among other things. However, they can be extremely charming and manipulative, and have learned to mime feelings in what O’Toole calls “impression management.” They are also, she says, masters at spotting your vulnerabilities.

Back to Brad’s profile. Although it’s unlikely he is a true psychopath, there are other negative behaviors to watch out for. “If you’re going to be online dating, look at the words in profiles,” she says. Look for lots of I/me statements that could indicate narcissism. And, from the above profile, the guy describing himself as good-looking could be a narcissist, she says. (She also points out that his adoring niece might have written his profile.) Plus, your own vulnerabilities can color your perception of him. If you ignore his initial neediness because you love that he’s always calling and texting to tell you how beautiful you are, you might wake up five years later with a possessive, jealous husband and think it’s a sudden change, O’Toole says. Watch for patterns of behavior or hints about how he acted in past relationships. A line like “I’m not a game-player,” is a red flag. Perhaps, she says, someone else has accused him of that.

Questions she suggests asking include: “What are your biggest concerns about meeting people online?” “When you’ve had good dating experiences, how did they go?” “When you’ve had bad dating experiences, how did those go?” She points out that if he blames all bad dates on the women involved, that’s a red flag.

Scenario 3: Your son Max has made a new friend, Steve, and wants to spend the night. You don’t know Steve’s family.

After buying some time, you need to meet the friend’s parents, O’Toole suggests. Even then, if they “seem nice” and have a well-mowed lawn, that doesn’t mean they don’t have unlocked guns or drugs lying around, own a pet cobra, text madly while driving, or have creepy Uncle Biff living in the basement. Get to know the parents. Check local registered sex offender lists and dangerous dog registries (the book has a chapter on such resources). Check out family members’ MySpace or Facebook pages. Visit the house; if you see anything suspicious,that opens the door to ask about it and judge how the family reacts.

Scenario 4: A uniformed telephone repairman is at your front door, but you don’t have an appointment. The last time you let in a repairman, everything went fine—and you don’t want to seem rude.

O’Toole brings up the case of Joe LaRette, who posed as a telephone repairman to get into women’s homes, whereupon he sexually assaulted and/or murdered them. Among the questions O’Toole suggests asking yourself are: Are you expecting someone? How easy would it be for him to push his way in? Are you alone? If not, is there someone there (like a child), you’d want to protect (making you more vulnerable)? Is there a way to verify the person’s identity without opening the door—for example, by calling the company? Does he have anything in his hands that could be used as a weapon?

She says that we tend to think that other people are like us, not looking to hurt others. That’s not, alas, true. Her bottom line advice: “I would recommend not opening the door at all. Anyone with a legitimate reason to be there will leave a note or follow up with a phone call. Although this might seem rude, consider that your safety is more important than whether the company gets the job done that day.”

Know how your mind works! Profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole lists five common ways you undermine your perception of people:

NORMALIZING: finding an explanation for risky behaviors. Example: Your daughter’s boyfriend complains angrily about his job and has been practicing at a shooting range. You tell yourself he’s just letting off steam.

RATIONALIZING: A strange car is parked in front of your house for hours with a man sitting in it. You decide not to call the police because you don’t want them to think you’re overreacting.

EXPLAINING IT AWAY: The parents of a missing child turned that child’s bedroom into an office shortly after the disappearance, O’Toole says. The police had decided they weren’t suspects and explained it by saying that the house was small, and they needed a “nerve center” to manage the search efforts. (The child, says O’Toole, was never found.)

IGNORING: Denial or willful blindness on the part of parents, for example, whose school-age child is alienated and looking up bomb-making online.

ICON INTIMIDATION: Bernie Madoff looked prosperous and had rich and famous clients who swore by him. A nice suit, good grooming, and a smile, not to mention family connections or a good job, can go a long way toward fooling you.


O’Toole has come up with a list of what she calls CTD behaviors (concerning, threatening or dangerous) that should give you pause, whether it’s your plumber, your daughter’s boyfriend or a new co-worker.
These are the top five:

  • impulsivity

  • inappropriate anger

  • narcissism

  • lack of empathy

  • injustice collecting (someone who holds onto past slights or wrongdoings)

Self Defense Tips for Everyone

self-defense-keys VulnerablePoints


You may have seen this on the internet somewhere, but I am re-posting because it contains valuable information!


It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :

The elbow is the strongest point on your body.

If you are close enough to use it, do! 

2. Learned this from a tourist guide.

If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.

Toss it away from you….

Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you,

and he will go for the wallet/purse.


3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,

kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy..

The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit

(doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS!)

The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in

on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.


If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF,


Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car.

Your Air Bag will save you and you have car insurance for a reason. If the person is in the back seat unbelted, they will get the worst of it .

As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body

in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor ,and in the back seat

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.

Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women

are attempting to get into their cars.

C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle,

and the passenger side… If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

D.) Never Use Your Keys As A Weapon: Contrary to popular belief, your keys are not a good weapon. Using your keys as a weapon can injure your hand, the keys can break, you lose your “key to safety” and you lose access to your car and home, which are safe havens. Unless it’s a LARGE key. Then it’s a good weapon.

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone

and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!

The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times (cops who are specially trained in shooting, only have a 1 in 15 chances of hitting you!); and even then,

it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic:

STOP! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking,

well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women.

He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle,

which is when he abducted  his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point:

Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last,

and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her

‘Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..’

The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried

that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’

He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax

women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that

they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.


10. Water scam!

If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your
outside taps full ball so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

This should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on

America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled a serial killer in Louisiana using this method to nab his victims.



BASIC Self Defense


***Disclaimer:  All info contained within is for informational and educational purposes only.  Use at your own discretion and risk. ****

B.A.S.I.C. Defense Tips

  • Be Aware. Awareness is one of the most important things in Self Defense. By being aware of your surroundings, many threats on the streets can be avoided.

  • If you see or sense problems on your way, change route or go to the other side of the road and prepare to run or defend yourself.

  • Use common sense and restraint. Everyone has choices on where they go and how they get there. Keep to well lit areas, go with a buddy, avoid dangerous areas.

  • Be aware of where you are.

  • Never act or appear to be an easy target. Don’t look like victim. Someone who is walking with their head down and an uncertain gait presents an easy target.

  • Have body language that exudes self-confidence.

  • Your priorities are survival and escape.

  • Get_a_survivor_mentality.
    “I have people who count on me and I am going home tonight”.

  • Use anything you can get your hands on as a self defense weapon. A pen in your purse, keys, your fingernails-anything that might cause injury to your attacker.

  • Most “fights” are won before they start, an aggressor may back down if you maintain eye contact and do not appear to be intimidated by them.

  • Be loud, attract attention, shout words that most people understand such as no or stop.
