When Secretary of Health Mike Leavitt recommended to a reporter that people should start to store food under their beds for emergencies, the national press jumped all over the comment. The idea was even picked up by comedian Jay Leno, who jokingly said, "Secretary of Health Mike Leavitt says we should prepare for a pandemic by putting tuna fish and powdered milk under our beds. Tuna fish and powdered milk? I'd rather have the flu."
This is most people's perception of food storage, choosing not to be prepared over having to eat food they would never consider in their regular diet. A recent study by Brigham Young University found that many consider the prospect of having to live off their food storage almost as distressing as a natural disaster itself.
