Episode 171: Lyme Biofiolm with Dr. Eva Sapi

Dr. Eva Sapi has been a trailblazer in Lyme disease research; she discovered that Lyme disease has a protective layer called biofilm, a barrier that makes treating Lyme disease incredibly difficult. She and her students at New Haven University are continuing to study a recent breakthrough in which they found that a specific liquid - whole-leaf stevia extract - can reduce the biofilm mass by about 40 percent! The goal of her research is to ultimately identify novel antibacterial agents that are effective in killing all forms of Lyme. Today, she joins Dr. Risk to discuss her role and research and share her findings.
