After reading Lab 257 I'm convinced Lyme came from Plum Island. Also some of the coinfections probably came from there too. They all strangely appeared around the same time as Lyme.
Let's see they gathered ticks from around the world and exotic tick borne diseases and experimented on them there with lax safety standards and Lyme just happens to spread out from that area.
It is interesting that you speak of this because one of my Lyme Dr's said the same thing!! I did not give it too much thought but it looks like he is not alone in this theory. I don't want this thread to get buried, lets get some more information on it.
Here is a start. Fast forward to 17:00 minutes in for the Lyme section.
