I spent most of last week at the International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases, a 1,500-person meeting of epidemiologists, physicians and microbiologists that is co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Society for Microbiology….I came away thinking we ought to be a lot more worried about ticks.
Some people already are, of course. As I described last month, the CDC has redrawn its maps of Lyme disease, the disease most commonly carried by ticks, to display how rapidly risk of it is rising in the northeastern US: 260 hot-spot counties now, compared to 69 20 years ago. READ MORE.

that was an outstanding, accurate article, which are hard to come by now a days!
i wrote a long reply and went to get the current names of the lyme disease bill they incorporated it into, and LOST everything!
goes to show, we need to copy/paste everything to msword file to avoid this happening to all the energy we put into replying. grrr.

I do hope you get an answer here. i also wonder what is the best test for someone who has had successful treatment of Lyme by ABX IV, then had treatment jerked for 5-6 years because of our medical establishment. Where do you start if you can ever get treatment again?
