“Surviving a lightning strike”

Nine out of every ten people that get hit by lightning survive, according to a post today by The Week magazine.  But their health afterwards can be significantly changed, and even their personalities can be affected by the trauma as well as the rewiring of their internal electrical circuits (which is really what the nervous system is).  A lot of people will be outside for the 4th of July holiday–make sure you follow good lightning safety rules and be safe and be smart!  The Week article can be read at http://theweek.com/articles/709218/surviving-lightning-strike.
