Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation. 

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not. 

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills. 

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible. 

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.

New Research Suggests US Tap Water Hiding Dangerous Secrets


( – When it comes to survival, few things are as crucial as clean, drinkable water. In as few as three days, a person can die without it. This is precisely why survival sites, magazines, and shows cover the topic relentlessly. Clean water is vital to one’s survival.

For those who never venture out into the wild, the idea of being without safe drinking water seems like an alien concept. After all, a quick trip to the sink provides all the water a person could ever want. But is the water found there really safe?

According to a new study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), one doesn’t have to live in Flint, Michigan (or more recently, Benton Harbor), to be worried about what they’re drinking.

According to EWG’s analysis of water utility companies and their contamination records, 56 new and dangerous contaminants have been found in American tap water. These include both radiation and pesticides, among a slew of other nasty surprises. Many of the newly identified impurities stem from the recent identification of PFAS, otherwise known as “forever chemicals.”

PFAS are toxic chemicals, and they’re widely used in many industries. Previously, scientists didn’t believe they posed much of a threat to humans. Recent studies, however, show they pose serious health hazards. The side effects of consuming these contaminants include health issues such as cancer, reproductive damage, and liver disease.

The truly scary part? EWG senior scientist Tasha Stoiber states that the list of contaminants would be much larger “if regulators and utilities were properly monitoring the nation’s water supply.”

To see the water supply in your area tested positive for dangerous contaminants, the EWG has a handy zip code search tool on their website.
