Lyme Disease In The News - What I've Been Reading

Have you been keeping up with the news about Lyme Disease, new strains of Borrelia, Bartonella infections and the many other news posts online?

I try to keep up on all the latest news when it comes to vector-borne diseases, meaning any diseases that are transmitted by any bugs.

If you follow me on Facebook I'm sure you've seen my plethora of posts on vector-borne "everything" but have you had time to read any of them?

Quite honestly, I've had a hard time keeping up but that might have something to do with my cute new puppy.

Lyme disease and co-infections are getting a lot of attention lately and that's a good thing.  The more information that's made available the easier it will be for you and I to make wise decisions for ourselves and our family when it comes to prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Below are some of the blogs, posts and articles I've been reading over the past few months.
