Excellent interview with Dr. Horowitz.  In under 10 minutes he explains the nuts and bolts of why Lyme Disease or MSIDS (multi systemic infectious disease syndrome) is so hard to treat.

The ticks are out in force here in Wisconsin.  Please take precautions and use permethrin spray on your clothing and do tick checks often.  If you must put chemicals on your skin use Deet but be cautious as it is toxic.  Remember to remove ticks carefully by getting tweezers or a tick removal device as close to the mouth parts as possible and gently pulling without squeezing or twisting as those actions will enable the stomach contents to be released into you.
