Food collapse unfolding in Greece: Grocery store shelves to be stripped bare... supermarkets raided... home gardens now the new 'secret weapon' against starvation

Food collapse

(NaturalNews) Over the years, I've consistently and repeatedly urged people to grow their own food, and I've explained over and over again why you need a home-grown self-reliant food supply when the food collapse arrives.

That moment has now arrived for the citizens of Greece. With cash disappearing, grocery store shelves are on the verge of being stripped bare across the country, and some citizens are beginning to raid grocery stores in desperately thefts to acquire enough food to prevent their own starvation.

"A halt to international payments from Greek bank accounts is ...threatening supplies of vital goods like food and clothing into the debt-crippled country," reports Reuters. [1]

That story, which is already 24 hours old by the time you read this, says that grocery shortages are just around the corner, and that the only thing keeping some groceries in stock is the fact that nobody can acquire enough cash to buy them!

Cash, of course, is also disappearing across Greece as the debt-based cash injections grind to a halt.

Some Greeks are already dumpster diving for food, and one citizen told The Telegraph, "Sometimes I'll find scrap metal that I can sell, although if I see something that looks reasonably safe to eat, I'll take it. Other times you might find paper, cans, and bottles that you can get money for if you take them back to the shops for recycling."

In Athens, one group of so-called "anti-establishment groups" raided a grocery store, stole the goods and fled on foot. [2] This is just the first of many such raids we'll see on grocery stores in the coming days, of course.

Growing your own food called a "secret weapon" against nationwide food collapse

In the midst of this food collapse, the Associated Press has suddenly awakened to the very same idea Natural News readers have practiced for years, calling home gardening a "secret weapon" in the fight to avoid starvation. [4]

The AP article quotes Greek citizen Ilias Mathes, who grows vegetables alongside raising chickens and goats. "I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage," he tells AP. "We will manage for a period of time, I don't know, two months, maybe three months..."

During those few months, other Greek citizens who don't have home gardens may be starving, rioting in the streets, and bartering anything they can get their hands on for food.

City dwellers, in particular, usually don't grow their own food, relying on factory food companies to keep the grocery store shelves fully stocked. But when the cash disappears, even grocery stores aren't able to purchase inventory to sell. Scared urban dwellers quickly panic because they have no knowledge of how to grow their own food (i.e. they are entirely dependent on the system).

Learn how to grow your own food for pennies

Anticipating all this, I created the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System last year, and I posted DIY videos online of how you can make your own. See www.FoodRising.org

I'm currently working on several key improvements to the system, by the way, including an aggressive simplification of parts that attempts to eliminate the float valve altogether.

I'm also scaling up the grow systems to be able to grow larger volumes of food with the same minimal effort. Once these plans are complete, I'll be posting them on FoodRising.org and giving them away to the world for FREE.

Subscribe to the email newsletter at FoodRising.org to be kept informed of these announcements.

One day soon, you will thank yourself that you paid attention to the importance of growing your own food at home. Just as the citizens of Greece are now learning, finding yourself with no cash, no food and no options is now a very real possibility. Because remember: Whatever unfolds in Greece today will arrive in America tomorrow...

Although I strongly encourage you to build your own food systems from scratch, if you wish to purchase pre-made systems I've designed, you can find them now at www.SupplySource.com

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory 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.

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. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. 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 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 over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
