Some Highlights:

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. called the CDC

“a cesspool of corruption, mismanagement and dysfunction.”

It was the rush to create a vaccine for Lyme that caused the current conflict.

Absolute Facts we were told were true for well over a decade by Yale and the IDSA that turned out to be completely untrue.

The Scotty Shelton, of Saginaw, MN case.

For over thirty years now we have been dealing with an antibiotic resistant superbug purposely concealed by the CDC, members of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and The American Lyme Disease Foundation. Post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome is simply a fabricated medical condition disguising treatment failure.

As long as the research dollars are left in the hands of those who have colluded to deny chronic Lyme, Bills to promote research for Lyme disease are of no value.
