For years now, Joe Alton, M.D. aka Dr. Bones and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P. aka Nurse Amy have written about the importance of adding antibiotics to your medical storage.  In times of trouble, simple cuts from chopping wood or other activities of daily survival can lead to infection that can become life-threatening.  In the History Channel series “After Armageddon”, an EMT got just such a cut, and watched himself slowly die from septicemia (an infection in the bloodstream) because the community had run out of antibiotics.  Our mission is to prevent such unnecessary deaths in a survival situation; many of our articles discuss fish antibiotics and other means of stockpiling needed supplies.
