Survival. It’s in the genetic code of every living thing. Yes, we’re talking about every living thing in the form of a plant or animal or even a single-cell organism.
Strange, isn’t it?
Since the four seasons also play an important part in their survival, hibernation is a way by which these beasts of the field survive these harsh months.
Another interesting aspect of surviving the winter is the storing up of food, and animals know which foods to pick which can last them for as long as the winter as there won’t be much food to gather during the cold months.
But does this activity of storing food pertain to humans as well?
You can be sure it does… so as to prepare oneself for a natural or man-made disaster!
Survival Food Storage – Tips
No matter what kind of disaster happens, being meticulous about the way in which you go about storing food in case of a disaster is probably the best approach to take.
Think about it: with the trouble and turmoil that surrounds us in all its forms, don’t you think it is a wise idea to store up food for the long-term so as to ensure the survival of our loved ones and ourselves?
This certainly isn’t paranoia but who’s to say how safe we will all be when the time comes and that nuclear disaster or even a hurricane hits your city or state, leaving millions homeless in its wake (and dead, most of all).
If you give it some serious thought, you will recognize the reason for taking some time off to research about how one can survive such a catastrophe just in case we’re caught in the middle of one.
Strangely enough, it’s those who aren’t prepared for such events are those who are thrown into such situations, and so, it bodes well for those who love life and limb to actually take such precautions for life.
Now there are several things that you must take into account especially when it comes to understanding how to go about storing food, and so here is an interesting (and detailed) article that shows you what to do in case this is for the long haul (much like animals do).
And if you think it’s not that complex to store up food (since these simple animals do the same), think again!
Here is a video that you can watch that will give you tips on how to store food for the long-term in the event of a disaster as well.
Of course, there’s another way by which animals (and all living beings) survive other than storing up food for the hard times (like we save money for a rainy day), and that is to procreate…
Since Charles Darwin understood how animals, plants and human need to function properly, you can be sure that his analysis of the entire species’ ability to survive took into account the birth of offspring.
And yet, if there wasn’t any food to consume, the offspring wouldn’t survive either… and perhaps, that is what we share in common with other species no matter how evolved humans consider themselves to be.
Taking the storage of food seriously… is not craziness but accepting the fact that circumstances can go out of control in no time, and it’s fair that we make arrangements for these tough times.
