This past fall, Hurricane Matthew left a trail of devastation and wreckage behind, causing damages estimated in excess of $15 billion. Hundreds of thousands of people experienced blackouts in their homes. They lost all of the food in their refrigerators and freezers. Two million were urged to evacuate. Many grocery stores couldn’t even open. Shelves were wiped clean and bare from any stores that didn’t close.
Stories like these and countless others are why we at 4Patriots decided to provide what we call “disaster insurance.” It’s our survival food. It ensures that you and your family will have food to eat no matter what happens.
And that insurance means you get more with our survival food than tasty and nutritious meals. You also get peace of mind.
“I Chose to Stay Prepared”
A customer of ours – Dennis from South Carolina – was one of the people anxiously following the news reports about Hurricane Matthew. He wondered if his home would be destroyed and damaged like so many buildings around him.
“Until the storm actually came ashore in South Carolina, forecasters really weren’t sure which path it would take,” Dennis said.
Thousands of people in the Southeast lost power for days due to the hurricane. But fortunately, Dennis and his family were spared.
Either way, Dennis had already decided to protect his family with our Fruit, Veggie & Snack Mix. It’s one of our most popular survival food kits and has the added benefits and nutrients of fruits and vegetables.
“Even though we didn’t need to use it this time, I chose to stay prepared because there will be a next time,” Dennis said. “Because of the extended (25 years) shelf life, I will be ready for whatever (and whenever) the future may throw at us.”
Millions of Lives Could Be Saved Each Year by Eating Enough Fruit & Vegetables
Many people don’t realize how important it is to have fruits and vegetables in their survival food stockpiles.
In a crisis, you need to operate at your highest possible level, mentally and physically. Fruits and vegetables are responsible for almost 80 percent of your daily intake of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrition.
And the science is backing it up. Just a couple of weeks ago, Fox News reported on a study at the University of Sydney (Australia). It said that when individuals 45 and up eat three to four servings of vegetables every day, they can significantly reduce stress levels.
Those who ate three to four servings of vegetables per day had a 12 percent lower risk of stress than those who didn’t.
In another report published in a major science journal – and covered by Time magazine – researchers found that eating 10 servings of fruits and vegetables daily can prevent millions of deaths each year.
They estimate significantly lower risk of heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular disease, cancer and premature death…
…for anyone who eats 10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, compared to not eating any fruits or vegetables.
“Fruits and vegetables have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and to boost the health of our blood vessels and immune system,” said the author of the study, Dagfinn Aune of the Imperial College London School of Public Health.
Including fruits and vegetables in your survival food stockpile is a big deal. It could easily mean the difference between merely surviving and thriving for your family.
Congratulations, Dennis, on being prepared to take care of your family, both during Hurricane Matthew and in the future… no matter what crisis might be headed your way.
