Thanks to all who entered the Survival Medicine Handbook giveaway on Modern Survival Blog. The book, The Doom and Bloom(tm) Survival Medicine Handbook, is from DoomAndBloom.net (Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy), who themselves wrote the book. We had a ton of entries and a great list of reasons why you are concerned about survival medicine. We have chosen Bev from Canada as the contest winner. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to input!
A large number of you had overlapping reasons for your desire for the handbook, the number one being ‘infections’. This makes a lot of sense and no doubt will be a very big issue, should TSHTF and a lack of professional modern medicine at our disposal.
Here is a list of some of the topics from you that are of concern in a post SHTF world, and things you would like to know more about…
