7 Serious Infections from Contaminated Food and Water
Easily the most deadly enemy of the SHTF scenario will be contaminated food and water. Both will be at a premium and both can be deadly depending on the type of contamination. This article maps out some of the common infections that can occur from these contaminated sources. The more you understand about contaminated food and water the better you will be about avoiding it.
I really enjoyed the context given on each one of these infections. These things have plagued us through history and we have created systems to eliminate them. This means we have everything to lose if the SHTF. We will be plunged back into the age of infections and we will struggle to survive. Sanitizing your water will make a huge difference in your survival odds. Cooking food thoroughly will do the same.
