Body Armor






Lets discuss the next thing the “Powers that be” will try to restrict. Body Armor. Body Armor is broken down in to several different classes. Cheaper Than Dirt describes them like this…
Body Armor
The most important thing to understand is that there is no such thing as a "Bulletproof" vest.
There are varying levels of bullet-resistance as standardized by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
NIJ BODY ARMOR CLASSIFICATION
Personal body armor covered by this standard is classified into five types (IIA, II, IIIA, III, and IV) by level of ballistic performance.
Soft armor vests stop pistol and fragmentation threats, but it takes a hard armor plate to stop a rifle bullet.
· SOFT ARMOR
Level IIA Stops 9 mm and 40 S&W
Level II Stops .357 Magnum
Level IIIA Stops .357 SIG and .44 Magnum
· HARD ARMOR
Level III Stops Most Rifle calibers, including .308 FMJ (Will not stop .223 or 5.56mm)
Level IV Stops Armor Piercing Rifle, including Armor Piercing .30-06.
Most hard armor plates are meant only to be used in conjunction with soft armor underneath. (I.e. A level III plate over level IIIA soft armor.)

Here is a good site for researching and purchasing body armor…

Garlic

W.O.W.
Garlic can rightfully be called one of nature’s wonders. It can inhibit and kill bacteria, fungi, parasites, lower blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar, prevent blood clotting, protect the liver and contains anti-tumor properties. If that wasn’t impressive enough, garlic can also boost the immune system to fight off potential disease and maintain health. Plus it keeps vampires at bay. (LOL)
 
Plus, did you know at the onset of the flu, eating several cloves of raw garlic can help shorten the span of the influenza? Taking before the flu’s onset will help you prevent from getting it! Pretty cool hunh? Learn how to grow garlic and start before the SHTF.
