The truth about Lyme disease

See on Scoop.itHealth and Inhumanity

Lyme disease can masquerade as MS, ALS, even dementia and its numbers are growing tenfold. So why is Canada lagging behind in treating and diagnosing it?

Dave Cottrell‘s insight:

"Doctors aren’t to blame, she says: “They don’t know what to look for.” Canadian medical students are taught about tropical infections like malaria, yet bacteria in their own backyard are ignored, she says: “We are a country of valleys and trees and forests; we need to be talking about Lyme.”"

This has been my own exact experience.  Doctors deny the very presence of Lyme disease, not because they are stupid or mean, but because their own Colleges have told them it doesn’t exist here.
