I've been worrying recently about the aftermath of the pole shift, and how one might treat starvation among survivors. This led me to the Medecins Sans Frontieres web site. According to them, diarrhea in its various forms is usually one of the five major causes of death in any emergency situation. The others are malnutrition, measles, malaria and pneumonia. The site gives information about treating these potentially fatal ailments. As far as I can see, you need to have a medical bag of vitamins, high-energy milk, antibiotics and electrolytes on hand if you want to combat all of these possible problems, not to mention vaccines for measles and so on. So I'm not sure how practical (or possible) it would be for a small group of prepared (but medically untrained) survivors to dispense aid to less prepared pole shift victims without compromising their (the prepared group's) own chances of survival. Long-term care for a large group of unprepared survivors is simply impossible, unless you are extremely well prepared and have access to huge amounts of money before the shift, as far as I can see.
