(NaturalNews) In an influenza pandemic, there are five things that can greatly increase your risk of death. A recent NaturalNews special report (http://www.naturalnews.com/RR-FiveBestAnti-V...) reveals these five dangerous things alongside the five most powerful anti-viral natural remedies. Today, we publish an excerpt from that report, bringing you the five things that can actually get you killed in a pandemic.

Avoiding these five things may literally save your life. As H1N1 influenza continues to spread (it's in all fifty states now and is sweeping through the prison system), making sure you don't fall victim to one of these five mistakes may be hugely important to your health and safety.

#1 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Arsenic

As revealed in a recent story on NaturalNews (http://www.naturalnews.com/026307.html), drinking well water contaminated with arsenic greatly increases susceptibility to H1N1 influenza infections. Arsenic is present in the water supply of tens of millions of people across the United States right now (now to mention the citizens of Canada, the UK, Australia and other countries). Low levels of arsenic are even "approved" by the EPA!

Check with your local water company to find out the arsenic levels in your water, and if you do find arsenic in your water, make sure you use a water filter (Aquasana is a good brand I recommend) to remove the arsenic.

#2 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Antibiotics

Taking antibiotics before a swine flu infection greatly increases your risk of being killed by swine flu. How do we know that? Because antibiotics wipe out the friendly flora that have been scientifically proven to boost the body's defenses against influenza (http://www.naturalnews.com/026265.html).

This is why, during any pandemic, doctors must exercise extreme caution when handing out antibiotics. While antibiotics can be extremely helpful during the pneumonia phase of a viral infection (when bacteria invade the lungs), they can be deadly if given to patients too soon (during the pre-pneumonia phase).

In addition, there's the whole concern over antibiotics abuse creating yet more dangerous superbugs in hospitals. Imagine the combination assault of a deadly new strain of the H1N1 influenza virus plus an antibiotic-resistant superbug sweeping through the hospitals of the world... That's a very dangerous combination indeed!

#3 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Lack of sleep

Getting fewer than six hours of sleep each night increases your risk of contracting colds (such as influenza) by a whopping 300 percent! Read more in this NaturalNews article: http://www.naturalnews.com/News_000665_colds...

As you read that, keep in mind that there is technically no difference between a "cold" and a "flu." They are two different words describing the same thing.

Eight hours of sleep each night will substantially boost your immune function, giving you the metabolic tools you need to fight off potentially deadly influenza infections.

#4 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Lack of vitamin D

Virtually everyone living in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. is chronically deficient in Vitamin D. Those living in Australia are usually better off, as there's more of a sunshine culture there, but even Aussies can find themselves vitamin D deficient if they live their lives indoors and don't venture into the real world to catch some healthy rays.

Vitamin D deficiency is, without question, one of the primary causes of influenza susceptibility (http://www.naturalnews.com/021229.html). Having sufficient vitamin D circulating in your blood is one of the best defenses against infection (http://www.naturalnews.com/024982.html).

Health authorities in the U.S. and other western nations are currently engaged in a campaign to keep the population vitamin D deficient. This is achieved by brainwashing people into thinking sunlight alone causes skin cancer. That's a big medical lie, of course. Even the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has published scientific research showing that sunlight exposure reduces the risk of skin cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/007632.html).

The American Cancer Society, of course, spreads extremely dangerous disinformation about sunlight exposure, seeking to make sure that no ray of sun ever touches the skin of any person. This "darkness" campaign will soon be exposed as a death sentence for the People as the next pandemic takes the lives of those stupid enough to believe that moderate sunlight exposure is bad for their health.

In the next great pandemic, when the hospital beds are overflowing with the dead, and school gymnasiums are taken over as holding cells for the constant stream of incoming body bags, the dead will consist almost entirely of those who believed the lies of the American Cancer Society and the disinformation of the FDA and Big Pharma. This is one case in which misplaced faith in a corporate-controlled medical monstrosity can literally cost you your life.

(What's missing from this photo, of course, are the armed military personnel, toting automatic rifles, who will shoot any infected person who attempts to escape the facility.)

#1 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Antacid prescription drugs

In a pandemic, use of popular antacid drugs can actually increase your risk of death. How? A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) concludes that these PPI drugs significantly increase the risk of deadly pneumonia.

Read the full story here: http://www.naturalnews.com/026361_drugs_medi...

These acid-suppressing medications, it turns out, are linked to a 30 percent increase in the risk of acquired pneumonia. And if you're suffering from something like the swine flu, pneumonia is the most common cause of death. It's the secondary bacterial infections, after all, that killed most people in 1918, and that's what's likely to cause the greatest number of fatalities in the next great pandemic as well.

If you want to protect yourself from influenza, avoid taking antacid drugs (including over-the-counter antacids).

So these are the five things that can potentially get you killed in a pandemic. Now, what about things that can help protect you from influenza infections in the first place? Those five best anti-viral remedies are revealed in the special report, which you can read right now at: http://www.naturalnews.com/RR-FiveBestAnti-V...

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
