Bird Flu Just Two Mutations from Human-to-Human Pandemic

May 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin of ModernSurvivalBlog.com

This is apparently no joke. Cambridge University professor Derek Smith warned the deadly bird flu virus is only two or three mutations away from being infectious between humans, and said it is something the world should ‘worry about’.

It could become like the Spanish Flu pandemic which killed around 50 million people.
Such a virus today would have a ‘devastating’ impact on the world’s population…

Professor Derek Smith said,
…studies showed it only needed five amino acid mutations – which happen naturally when the virus evolves – to become transmittable between people.
Scientists have discovered two of these mutations are already common and a third has been seen in some parts of the world – meaning it would take just two more.

You may or may not have heard recently that in the United States the ‘bird flu’ is raging and more than 20 million turkeys (and chickens) have been killed as a result.

“Virulent H5 avian influenza strains have spread to 14 states in five months and affected about 24 million birds so far, mostly egg-laying hens and turkeys,” according to USDA. The outbreak, which is also affecting two Canadian provinces, shows little sign of slowing.

While the virus has not yet spread to humans, its rapid spread coupled with the risk that it’s apparently very close to jumping over to humans, should serve as yet another wake-up call to one’s preparedness and realization of the systemic risks we face as a modern civilization. It is difficult to imagine the horrific depopulation that would occur so very rapidly in today’s modern world. It would be overwhelmingly debilitating and shocking, and there’s little doubt that our systems of distribution and just-in-time inventory and deliveries would be broken.

Additionally, people would be fearful (rightfully so) to be among others, which would further enhance the contraction of supply chains.A real pandemic is difficult to comprehend because we’ve not experienced such a comparable depopulation in our lifetime. When it happens again (and you know that it will…) it could potentially be bad enough to radically alter our current way-of-life.

While there’s little that you can do to prevent a pandemic situation such as the ‘bird flu’ from ‘jumping’ to humans, you can do your due-diligence to prepare for such an event. During a pandemic, survival is very dependent upon your non-exposure to the virus (whatever it is). This means relative isolation. Which in turn means that you will need adequate food and supplies to make it through the ‘hot’ period (at least).

This warning regarding bird flu mutation (two away from human-to-human) reinforces the need to store food in your home. Not just 3 weeks worth, but at least 3 or 6 months worth. One year (per person) should really be a very good goal to work towards. Of course there is more than just food to be concerned about. But it’s a good start (and a very important one!)

Pandemic is one of those things that can begin nearly unnoticed. You might hear, read, or see a report hear and there but suddenly it will seem like it has spread all over. When it happens, it will happen quickly in today’s world of fast and global transportation. Particularly when governments have already been proven to hesitate and/or refuse to close borders and impede travel. Your survival will likely be up to you – not your government…

THE ASTONISHING RADIOPROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF MISO EXPLAINED: Nagasaki, Hiroshima and Chernobyl survivors speak out... eat to live!




(NaturalNews) One of the most amazing chapters in the true history of healing foods comes from the final chapter of World War II, in the aftermath of the United States' dropping of two atomic bombs on civilian populations in Japan. Millions of innocent civilians were exposed to extreme levels of ionizing radiation, and rates of cancer immediately skyrocketed thereafter.

Yet some people seemed to be immune to the effects of harmful radiation... even people who were less than a mile from the epicenter of the atomic bombs. What was different about these people? As you'll learn here, they were all consuming miso, a staple of the Japanese diet made from fermented soybeans, rice and salt.

Miso, as you'll see here, winds its way through the history of nuclear accidents and atomic bombs, always serving as a healing food with extraordinary properties that come from the fermentation process, not the soy itself. (Fermenting soy radically alters its chemical properties, changing it from an estrogen-mimicking food to an anti-estrogenic food.)

Miso and Nagasaki

A study published in the journal Toxicologic Pathology entitled "Beneficial Biological Effects of Miso with Reference to Radiation Injury, Cancer and Hypertension" details some of this enlightening history:

When the 2nd atomic bomb was dropped in Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945, physician Tatuichiro Akizuki, along with 20 employees, was taking care of 70 tuberculosis patients at "Uragami Daiichi Hospital" (St. Francis Hospital) about 1.4 km away from the hypocenter. However, these people including Dr. Akizuki did not have any acute radiation disease. Dr. Akizuki considered that this was the result of consuming cups of wakame miso soup (miso soup with garnish of wakame seaweed) every day. Later, this was translated into English and became known in the West. In the Chernobyl of nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986, in the Ukraine, many Europeans consumed miso soup as a preventive measure for radiation diseases. Therefore, Dr. Akizuki can be considered to be the first person in Japan to point out radioprotective effects of miso for maintaining health.

What Dr. Akizuki concluded is that drinking miso soup before radiation exposure offered a significant radioprotective effect, effectively blocking the negative effects of radiation poisoning.

Study Proves Fast Food Utterly Destroys Gut Bacteria

Below is an article written by Joshua Krause (ReadyNutrition) of a study on how fast food destroys gut bacteria. Although there are many chemicals and preservatives in junk food, the most dangerous ingredient is likely wheat. There is a direct link between consumption of modern wheat (frankenwheat), gut bacteria, and neurological problems such as autism, Alzheimer's, and dementia. One of the best things you can do for your health is eliminate wheat. Frankenwheat also has the highest amount of gluten than any grain. This is why gluten is usually blamed for digestive problems and not wheat itself. 

Most people who have eliminated gluten entirely may find that eliminating just wheat and substituting it with healthier, low-gluten grains such as spelt, barley, and oats may find they feel just as good. In any case, grains are not required for good health but many enjoy their low-cost, satisfying, high-fiber, and serotonin-lifting effects. This will not work for those with celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease for which the body is unable to digest any gluten regardless of source.

(ReadyNutrition) By now, I think we all know that fast food is incredibly unhealthy, and eating it on a regular basis is a surefire way to wreck your body and mind. The purveyors of these foods (if you can call what they serve “food”), are now viewed with as much disdain as the tobacco companies, and the sales for companies like McDonald’s have been declining across the board for the better part of a year. So not only are we all aware of the health consequences of this food, but many of us are starting walk the walk.
