Subj: Special RAW FOOD BULLETIN: Y2K Date: Thu, 2 Dec 1999 2:02:55 AM Eastern Standard Time From: "Nature's First Law" To: nature@cari.net Hello Friends,

December 31, 1999 is only 30 days away. This is an exciting time! The world will be celebrating. Are you ready for the biggest party in 1000 years? Are you prepared for perhaps the worst party in 1000 years?

Many computer experts have speculated that on January 1, 2000, a world-wide catastrophe will occur. Everything from power grids to nuclear power plants, to our food supply, to the stock market, to social security, to our bank accounts are at risk when the clock strikes midnight. You have surely already heard the speculations about what will happen when the billions of computers and microchips around the world turn from 99 to00 (1999 to 2000). This computer-designers' flaw could cause world-wide chaos. Hopefully, you have started to prepare. We here at Nature's First Law recommend that you have some extra food and water on hand if Y2K comes down like the experts say it will.

Here are a few things everyone should have:

Pure water (distilled in glass bottles is best) Raw, organic olives (important source of plant fat!) Raw, organic, in-shell nuts Raw, organic, sun-dried fruit High-quality nutcracker

If they're right, you'll be prepared. If they're wrong, you'll have some extra organic food on hand. The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. Be prepared.

Our Y2K Food Supply List:

Very nice stuff, but obviously pricey. By the way, you have to be really a man/woman of steel to drink fresh aloe juice. That is the most awful drink I've ever had and I am used to bitter, nasty herbs.

-- Mara (MaraWayne@aol.com), December 02, 1999.

I took part in a year-and-a-half medical study run by Gary Null on reversing the aging process. I mixed a small amount of the juice with the watered-down organic grape juice I switched to after giving up Coca-cola. I did taste different, but not undrinkable when mixed with the grape juice. My dehydrator book says that canned orange juice can be dehydrated like fruit leather and the rehydrated in a blender. I guess the same thing could be done to the frozen grape juice concentrate by using a hand powered salad chopper as a "blender".
