Cases of Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that can lead to severe mental and physical problems, could be much higher than previously thought, according to a new UK report.
One of the most under-diagnosed illnesses in the world, Lyme disease is a growing health problem for many nations, especially in the northern hemisphere. While a German physician, Alfred Buchwald, was the first to document the disease in a study in 1883, albeit essentially describing it as a chronic inflammation of the skin, the Lyme disease syndrome as we now understand it was not officially recognized until 1975 when a cluster of cases was identified in the United States.
Even today, it remains the case that conventional medicine has no reliably effective treatment for Lyme disease. Significantly, therefore, evidence suggests that the 1975 outbreak, which occurred in the town of Lyme, Connecticut, may be linked to biological warfare experiments being carried out nearby by the U.S. government at the time.
