LIGHT­NING BRINGS ON MI­GRAINES

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Elec­tri­cal storms have been linked with all sorts of weird health events and now it seems light­ning can bring on mi­graines. US re­searchers have found suf­fer­ers are 28 per cent more likely

to ex­pe­ri­ence an at­tack on days when light­ning struck within 40 kilo­me­tres of them. Sci­en­tists say there are many ways light­ning could cause headaches – it could be from the elec­tro­mag­netic waves or be­cause light­ning pro­duces in­creases in air pol­lu­tants such as ozone and can cause re­lease of fun­gal

spores.
