Appears like an interesting book Razzle.. I found the link here:
This is interesting about 1909:
"This tick-borne infectious disease is spread by deer, cats, dogs, horses, field-mice, and migratory birds; more than 200 strains of the causative spirochetal bacterium have evolved since it was first described in 1909.
Yet, Canadians are routinely told by their doctors that Lyme does not exist in Canada and that there is no such thing as its chronic form – its most devastating form, also known as “the great imitator”: More than 19,000 publications in mainstream clinical journals have shown that chronic Lyme may develop into Parkinson’s, ALS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s, Scleroderma, and up to 50% of Multiple Sclerosis may be due to untreated Lyme infections. The spirochetes cross the placenta and also enter into breast milk, so many cases of autism have been proven to be due to the Lyme spirochete."
I once knew a girl who became infected with lyme who lived in South America (I think it was Brazil) and of course she was told that lyme doesn't exist there. She traveled to the states to get treated (after sending her blood to IgeneX) since the doctors where she lived knew nothing about lyme disease. I have not heard from her so I have no idea how she is doing today.
Keep us updated on this book,
