In this episode of the Doom and Bloom(tm) Survival Medicine Hour, Joe and Amy Alton, aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy, welcome Tara Dodrill, preparedness journalist and author of Power Grid Down: Prepare, Survive, and Thrive After The Lights Go Out, discuss the latest news about Middle East Respiratory Virus, and how this year’s flu vaccine was only 19% protective against the illness (normally it’s 60-70%). Also, a disease you don’t know much about: Vibrio Vulnificus, a relative of Cholera that has killed two people in Florida this year, and a mention of National Pollinator Week, a week of awareness about our animal pollinators.  A third of human nutrition requires these bees, beetles, birds, and other wildlife to produce our food.


Also, on the lighter side, a segment of the Alton’s collaboration with Charley and Courtney Hogwood, the “Barely Prepared” news parody Youtube series.
