[CanLyme Note: Canadians have got to beware of information produced by any members of the Canadian Lyme Disease Research Network (CLyDRN) as their information does not serve you the public, but instead serves the for-profit medical industry and their many components while patients struggle with a lifetime of disability and multiple daily drugs not intended to fix the disease itself.

[CanLyme Note: Even worse is that the 4 million tax payer dollars given to the conglomerate, Canadian Lyme Disease Research Network (CLyDRN), is now controlled by members of the anti-science/ethics private group the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease of Canada (AMMI) which is the puppet arm of the highly controversial Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA). Most of the Continues →

Far-Reaching Dispersal of Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato-Infected Blacklegged Ticks by Migratory Songbirds in Canada
https://doi.org/10.3390/healthcare6030089 Abstract Lyme disease has been documented in northern areas of Canada, but the source of the etiological bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (Bbsl) has been in doubt.

We provide the first report of Bbsl-infected, songbird-transported I. scapularis in Cape Continues →

Borrelia miyamotoi rash is breaking the myth that rashes caused by borreliosis (Lyme disease) must expand beyond 5 cm.
Canada has Borrelia miyamotoi and other borrelia from coast to coast. The standard guidelines imposed on doctors state myths about rashes that science has shown us are not correct… The guidelines state that 60-80% of people will get a rash, NOT TRUE Only a small subset of the borrelia bacteria will cause any rash. Rashes must expand to 5 cm Continues →

[CanLyme Note: The Lyme disease disaster for Canadians is an excellent example of how the ‘self-regulating’ medical colleges and medical associations have woven themselves into the publicly funded health care system positioning themselves as the only experts, and policing any physicians who disagree with them, out of business. No outside scientific expertise is allowed no matter how much harm is done Continues →
