(N.Morgan) There has been renewed interest in the number of humans affected by Lyme disease.
The CDC and other agencies continue to claim only certain areas of the United States have the habitat environment for the tick which causes Lyme disease.
So when an individual falls ill, and their health continues to decay, because they do not live nor have visited in a state or region where the tick which causes Lyme disease exists, no blood testing for the disease is routinely done.
This leads to years of illness, with deteriorating overall health, before the individual can convince their health service provider to test them for Lyme disease.
This has led to the name chronic Lyme disease for this lingering version, and the medical community claiming the condition is not real, does not exist.
Sadly, after years of illness, these individuals are finally tested and diagnosed with Lyme disease, but the long term damage to their health is not easily corrected.
It should be noted that in the states or regions where the tick which causes Lyme disease exists, the same symptoms will get a quick blood test for the disease, and receive immediate treatment.
The total opposite of the medical approach given patients who do not live nor have visited in a state or region where the tick which causes Lyme disease exists.
A recent study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Mayo Clinic pathologist and laboratory doctor Bobbi Pritt and her colleagues tested more than 100,500 clinical specimens, such as blood, cerebrospinal fluid and tissue, collected from U.S. patients with suspected Lyme disease between 2003 and 2014.
Using a special molecular biology technique called PCR that can identify genetic differences among bacterial strains, they found that six of the samples—collected from patients between 2012 and 2014 in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota—contained DNA suggestive of a new species.
They isolated some of these live bacteria and analyzed parts of their genetic sequence, confirming that the microbe has, in fact, never been documented before.
The researchers propose to name the new species Borrelia mayonii.
Another study recently conducted in Germany discovered that the pathogens that cause Lyme disease in mosquitoes for the first time in central Europe.
In the present study, adult as well as larval mosquitoes were collected at 42 different geographical locations throughout Germany.
This is the first study to analyze German mosquitoes for the presence of Borrelia spp.
The team found Borrelia DNA in ten Culicidae species of mosquito, comprising four distinct genera (Aedes, Culiseta, Culex, and Ochlerotatus).”
With all of this mitigating evidence to prove this disease exists and is infecting thousands of victims a year, how can there still be any debate to its legitimacy?
