12 potentially life-threatening errors you're making in food preparedness and survival strategies

Although armed with good intentions, most preppers and survivalists are making critical errors -- perhaps fatal errors -- in their food preparedness strategies. 

This article is designed to help you identify and correct those errors as quickly as possible so that you're in good shape before the food collapse arrives. When will that be, exactly? It depends on whom you believe: geologists say the world's primary irrigation aquifers have maybe 20 - 30 years of water remaining, after which the global food supply collapses. Some environmentalists say radical weather, droughts, floods and heat waves have already started wreaking havoc on the food supply (just look at California right now). People concerned about GMOs and genetic pollution point out that runaway crop diseases could strike at any time and devastate global crop production. Finally, those who are more concerned about government tyranny correctly point out that the federal government has already asserted executive order control over all food, farms and livestock. 

Only the wildly ignorant don't store extra food for emergency preparedness. Even the federal government's program urges people to "have a plan" and make a disaster supplies kit which contains, "at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food" -- just enough to keep you alive until FEMA arrives and screws everything up. 

The problem is that even well-meaning Americans who are trying to prepare for the worst (while hoping for the best) are often going about it all wrong.
