Episode 122 Lyme with Mary Beth Pfieffer

The war against Lyme Disease still rages on.  It’s been ten years since we’ve had a study on treatment outcomes of Lyme, and doctors and government still turn a blind eye to its existence, while thousands each year become infected and suffer without recognition or treatment.  Mary Beth Pfieffer has outlined the failures of a flawed system where medial and scientific communities still turn a blind eye to tick-born illnesses.
