A friend asked me to spend some time covering a few more little known facts about zombie outbreak survival. I’m a world known zombie outbreak survival expert. You might say I have a black belt in zombie apocalypse survival. You might say that, but I would slap you and reiterate that I have no less than seven black belts (certifications) in zombie apocalypse survival. I often focus on the big ticket survival info like guns and ammo and zombie eradication facts and FAQs.
I do agree with my good friend, sometimes I need to dial it down a notch and cover some basic general purpose information just for the sake of making you, the potential pandemic zombie outbreak survivalist, as smart as I can make you. That’s no easy task, but I am here to serve.
What could I possibly tell you right now that you might wish you had known during a zombie apocalypse? The answer is: lots.
For this article I’m going to cover a few topics my friend asked about.
The government response to a pandemic outbreak…
As I said in too many of my previous articles to list, a pandemic zombie outbreak, a zombie apocalypse is a serious threat to humanity and is most likely to happen only after a series of local zombie outbreaks piggy-back after a major pandemic viral outbreak.
The reference viral outbreak is the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1918...
...where more than 30 million people worldwide died from a global outbreak of a deadly strain of the common flu. If a deadly and contagious flu outbreak could happen then, it could happen again today as was depicted in the CDC and WHO sponsored movie titled, Contagion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contagion_(film)). I recommend you watch this movie and consider this movie as the prequel to any zombie apocalypse movie, like Zombieland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombieland). You can learn a lot from pairing up the Contagion movie with a good zombie movie like Zombieland, Warm Bodies, or AMC’s The Walking Dead TV show. You just can’t really have a zombie apocalypse without first having a deadly pandemic viral outbreak, as was proven in several outbreak models sponsored and researched by Harvard and Texas A&M’s zombie research centers in support of CDC and WHO zombie initiatives.
You really need to read my previous articles so you can understand more of the true science behind the facts about zombie outbreaks and the true potential for a zombie apocalypse.
Friend’s question: How do childhood immunities and vaccination protocols play into the potential for Z-virus immunity?
First of all, this is a great question. There are some children who through several mundane and routine good health protocols will develop increased immunities to the Z-virus and other viruses.
It’s a fact. A number of people in the world are naturally fully immune to Z-virus, like any virus. There are some people who will never get sick from the flu, from anthrax, or from SARS, or even from HIV. The human population has built in evolutionary defenses against almost every wipe-out virus known to man. Viruses have their work cut out for themselves if they want to completely wipe out humanity. In fact, every viral outbreak model ran by Texas A&M and Harvard on behalf of the CDC and the WHO shows little potential for complete extinction of humans because of a viral outbreak unless deadly viral outbreaks piggy-back each other and they probably will. And, Ah...but if only viruses were all you and I had to worry about in a global pandemic outbreak. What am I talking about? Read my previous articles and watch the movie Contagion.
Fact: Children who are breastfed develop life-long increased immunities to viruses. Pregnant women and further mothers who breastfeed also develop life-long increased immunities to viruses. How is this possible, why, what is it? Do you really need the specifics of what it is about human milk that benefits mothers and their children? Well if you do, you will need to do your own research. The full science behind all this is still developing, but there is just something about pregnancy and breastfeeding that has an immune system boostering effect on babies and moms. That’s a proven scientific fact.
Of course, there are a number of artificial immune system boosting strategies such as I described once before: Re: The military’s anthrax vaccination program.
By the way I just received my new vials of Z-virus boosters. Because I am an official zombie outbreak responder and not a pretender like many so-called internet people, I been getting Z-virus boosters every 10 years as required by the CDC. I’m uploading a picture of my vials and instructions from the CDC, just so you can see what is going on from my point of view. This is the first year they have allowed us to inject ourselves with the Z-virus vaccines. Thanks government cutbacks! So if I inject myself and have a bad Z-virus reaction, I’m supposed to inject myself with atropine and epinephrine, lock myself in my car or basement, and call 911. Ah, but what’s a hero to do? I can withdraw from the program anytime I want, but I’ve gone this far. So I will start the 30-day booster series, which by the way, is supposed to contain the most current strains of Z-virus and pandemic flu viral vaccines, or as a friend of mine once thought, contains some sort of mind-controlling tracer chemical so the government can remotely kill all former soldiers if we ever decided to revolt. So, who you gonna believe?
As far as placental barriers and Z-virus immunities, this scientifically validated benefit to babies and moms is not a perfect zero-error biological system. I personally intervened in a zombie outbreak where a pregnant woman, who was among those identified as infected, was shown to have been bitten by a stage 4 zombie and we assumed she would be okay because she showed no outward expression of Z-virus complications, until not much later and much to everyone's chagrin, her unborn baby started to eat its way out of her belly, and this was then obvious to us that the unborn child had succumbed to the Z-virus it was exposed to while in the womb and had become a fetal zombie and all while the mother did not succumb to this Z-virus exposure, her condition of pregnancy being no 100% guarantee of protection from contamination to the baby she carried. There can often be a random tragic nature to Z-virus exposure.
American Institute of Medicine report on the benefits of breastfeeding and research showing how breastfeeding is a panacea of good fortune for multiple childhood and other life-long wellness strategies: http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2011/Updating-the-USDA-National-Breastfeeding-Campaign-Workshop-Summary.aspx
The CDC’s campaign to further worldwide health and wellness illness defense through increased breastfeeding: http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/
This science is proven! Breastfed babies have increased immunities. Pregnant women have increased immunities. Breastfeeding moms have even greater immunities.
The US Surgeon General’s Call to Action for Breastfeeding: http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/library/calls/breastfeeding/index.html
So, if you want to increase your children’s chances of surviving a pandemic outbreak and a subsequent zombie apocalypse, you know from my previous articles, you have to make sure your children are current on their recommended vaccinations, are receiving annual flu shots, and now you know you have to ensure your children are breastfed. Breastfeeding…it benefits all of humanity, the whole world.
Friend’s question: Can the government adequately react to a pandemic outbreak?
The answer: Yes… Temporarily.
As I stated in a previous article, you need to appreciate that one of the government response protocols to a pandemic situation is to let the viral outbreak run its course. In some pandemic scenarios this will be the best course of action. The Spanish flu killed more than 30 million people in a short amount of time. Compared to the entire population of humanity, this is a small number. The most cost effective government response might be to encourage social distancing, clean up and secure the deceased bodies, vaccinate care providers, and provide protection from social disorder. It just depends, because this is a great response plan right up until deadly pandemic viral outbreaks start piggy-backing each other.
FEMA Pandemic Outbreak Protocols:
Do you know about the Strategic National Stockpile?
Are you familiar with your state’s stockpile and outbreak response protocols?
Texas Communicable Disease Control and Prevention Act:
Okay, it should be somewhat obvious to you that I live in Texas.
The feds and the states each have protocols and stockpiles of a variety of things from guns and ammo, to water, to medicines, to military foods (MREs), to mobile hospitals and mobile body disposal units, all on hand, ready for use during outbreak response actions and other catastrophes.
