Kansas governor declares October Zombie Preparedness Month; urges citizens to prepare for zombie apocalypse

Zombie apocalypse

(NaturalNews) Although Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is sure to be teased about this by persnickety whiners, it's actually a smart initiative: Kansas has declared October to be "Zombie Preparedness Month" in an effort to raise awareness about disaster preparedness among its citizens.

Obviously, the Kansas government isn't literally concerned about the walking undead marching through the countryside, but the present-day popularity of the zombie theme provides a convenient hook to teach some truly lifesaving strategies. The idea is that if the population is well prepared against an imagined zombie attack, they're probably also well prepared for an earthquake, nuclear terrorism, an Ebola outbreak or any other emergency that would seriously disrupt the fundamental infrastructure of society.

It's a smart program. "The agency is calling on Kansans to devise a survival plan that they could implement in the unlikely event that a horde of zombies descends upon the Sunflower State," reports the National Journal. [1] "Five of the best entries will be highlighted during 'Zombie Preparedness Day' on Oct. 25, an event that will take place in Topeka."

No doubt the winning entries will likely be those which are the most politically correct -- i.e. they won't include instructions on how to build your own flamethrowers and zombie grenades -- but even basic preparedness reminders can be extremely valuable to the public.

A covert way to educate people about preparedness

The "zombie" title is very clever because it allows the Kansas government to distribute lifesaving preparedness information under the cover of a caricature, cartoon-like theme story. If the same event were called "Ebola Preparedness Month" then it would be immediately deemed "too scary" by all the politically correct thought police who run around society making sure nobody confronts the truth about what's really headed our way. But under the fictional theme of a zombie apocalypse, the government of Kansas can impart real, lifesaving information without making too many self-deluded people feel "uncomfortable."

As an additional public relations benefit, people who are too uninformed and shortsighted to understand concepts like "personal preparedness" will simply think all the talk about zombies has something to do with Halloween. And they can take part, too, because zombie face masks and costumes are socially acceptable during the month of October (in America, anyway).

Real risks include economic collapse, power grid failures, nuclear accidents and more

The real risks facing the people of Kansas -- and every other U.S. state -- include the risk of an EMP attack that destroys the national power grid, the arrival of a massive solar flare that destroys all modern electronics, a dirty bomb attack on a U.S. city, an Ebola outbreak reaching the continental United States, a cyber attack that brings down the banking system, a global debt collapse that shutters banks and halts financial transactions, a nuclear war with Russia or China, a catastrophic disruption in the national food supply, a nuclear plant meltdown and so on.

Fortunately, any preparations made in the context of a zombie apocalypse are extremely useful for any of those scenarios, too. All such preparations must include backup supplies of food, water, medicine, communications equipment and self defense gear which in Kansas would likely include appropriate rifles, shotguns and handguns.

Preparedness strategies for a full-blown viral pandemic are revealed in my free online audio course at www.BioDefense.com

I've also got another online preparedness course coming soon at the website www.PrepperMistakes.com (not yet active).

Kansas should be a model for the entire country

Personally, I'm really impressed with the effort being undertaken by Kansas and Gov. Sam Brownback. This effort is to be really commended, and it could save many lives. If the federal government modeled its preparedness advice after the Kansas program, the entire nation would be better off.

Kansas even has a readiness website called www.KSready.gov where you can learn all sorts of tips about being prepared for the unexpected.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
