This article reports that an American tourist has a better chance of dying from poisoning or a lightning strike than from a terrorist attack. According to Neil C. Livingstone, author of "Protect Yourself in An Uncertain World: A Comprehensive Handbook for Your Personal and Business Security," the odds are significantly higher, in some parts of the world, of being killed or kidnapped by a terrorist. He suggests a number of precautions that can be taken to reduce those odds when traveling abroad. One should know as much as possible about each country one plans to visit, including its history, religion, geography and government.
