Zero cases of Lyme in Arkansas? Really?
KATV, November 12, 2015:
Modern gun hunting season opens in Arkansas this weekend. Waiting in the woods for all those hunters will be millions of ticks.
While the Centers for Disease Control says tick-borne Lyme disease is a growing epidemic in this country, state statistics say Arkansas hunters need not worry.
Twenty years ago Arkansas saw a couple dozen Lyme disease cases pop up each year.
But while the number of Lyme disease cases nationwide has been increasing, the number of recognized cases in Arkansas has dropped.

I guess the CDC must have seen the signs posted on highways entering Arkansas stating “Tick Free Zone.” One has to ask why are Taxpayers finding this group of TOTAL IDIOTS? Time to shut the CDC down, permanently!

Criminal, criminal, criminal!!! I can’t believe how criminal establishment medicine and the government is. I suppose doctors in Arkansas who treat Lyme will lose their license, and be jailed. All doctors should just leave Arkansas. When the whole population gets sick, who will control who? Who is making money off of this situation? It does not make sense.

It doesn’t take a mental giant to understand how the CDC was able to report the drop of reported Lyme cases in 2010–Lyme patients either were not correctly diagnosed,or when it was discovered it was never reported. This has been known to happen in our Polk County, WI Health Dept.I’m sure that we are not an isolated case. Hummmm~~~
