Emergency Survival Hygiene
Did you know Infectious Diseases kill more people worldwide than any other single cause … and yet, Emergency/Survival Hygiene is one of the most overlooked areas in disaster preparedness? After a disaster, you will physically be doing things that you may have never done before- such as cutting fire wood, using an axe or a chain saw, removing debris, or cooking your meals over an open fire – all in dirty conditions. You will be both over-exerted and over-tired, lowering your resistance and putting you at higher risk for sickness and injury. You will also be at a higher risk for infection and disease from air-borne, food-borne, or water-borne pathogens. Just one - even insignificant - cut or burn could end up resulting in a life-threatening infection. Keeping your family clean, disease, and germ free after a disaster is not an option – it is a necessity! If you are like most people, you probably haven’t given much thought to how you will overcome the obstacles of keeping you and your family clean and germ free, when all the conventional means have run out. Survivor Jane’s Guide To: Emergency/Survival Hygiene; was written for a time when everyday health and grooming aids are no longer available. This book gives you simple, yet effective solutions on how you can make personal health and hygiene products by using what you already have in your food pantry, medicine cabinet and garden.
