So right here, we have a perfect example of people being given co-authorship and all they did was provide biased examples of misdiagnosed people with chronic Lyme and/or had adverse effects due to treatment of chronic Lyme.
This type of biased research is rife with Lyme/MSIDS and must stop.
According to investigative journalist Mary Beth Pfeiffer, research on Lyme/MSIDS is owned by a Cabal: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/01/13/lyme-science-owned-by-good-ol-boys/
And many of these folks have patents on everything from test kits to vaccines:
Another glaring issue in the research world is the continuing fixation on the acute phase of the disease with perhaps up to 60% of patients struggle with chronic illness: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/02/25/medical-stalemate-what-causes-continuing-symptoms-after-lyme-treatment/, as well as the continuing fixation on the moniker of climate change when research has shown ticks are oblivious to weather: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/11/07/ticks-on-the-move-due-to-migrating-birds-and-photoperiod-not-climate-change/
There are many, many issues that need serious study yet the research world refuses to touch them and continues to do biased work with a preconceived outcome to the demise of extremely sick patients.
