Health P.E.I. tragically mistaken [on Lyme disease]
Government bafflegab bothers me, especially when the health of young school-age children is at stake. On March 11, Health P.E.I. officials featured on CBC’s (Mis)Information Morning downplayed the true risk of Lyme Disease on P.E.I. and claimed that current diagnostic blood tests being used here for detecting this serious tick-borne disease are very effective. They also cast doubt on the effectiveness of more sophisticated testing in the U.S., suggesting that only a gullible hypochondriac would be crazy enough to cross the border in search of a cure. This Health P.E.I. info would be laughable, were it not so tragically mistaken.
