Lyme disease patients fight for their lives while academics fight each other. That’s just wrong.
The number of people who get Lyme disease compared to how little research on it is ever funded is staggering. Scientific bias is hurting people.
For patients, there is often nothing more soul-crushing than being inexplicably sick with doctor after doctor having no answers, or getting the wrong diagnosis and being led down the wrong path with the wrong drugs. But for patients with Lyme disease, either or both is common, because its every aspect has been so bitterly contested by scientists that the conversation has been sourly referred to as “The Lyme Wars” in medical journals.
