Ticks carrying Lyme disease have rapidly spread to most of the populated areas of southern Canada. The disease is now an epidemic in southern Ontario, southern Quebec, southern New Brunswick and throughout Nova Scotia. Doctors have been slow to recognize it and slower to treat it properly. Despite its clear importance as a growing threat to public health, Lyme disease remains a controversial and poorly understood illness that often causes multiple long-lasting problems. Usually cured when promptly treated, it often goes undiagnosed. This book is an up-to-date resource, covering every topic.
