Lyme is becoming a public health crisis in Canada. An estimated 20,000 Canadians become sick with Lyme every year, but patients are not allowed access to internationally recognized tests and are denied successful treatments. It is readily treatable with conventional antibiotics, even in its chronic form.
In May of 2000, the Canadian Medical Association published proof that Lyme disease is “endemic throughout Canada”. In October 2008, the US Center for Disease Control declared it to be an “epidemic in North America”, having increased by over 100% since 1992. This tick-borne infectious disease is spread by deer, cats, dogs, horses, field-mice, and migratory birds; more than 200 strains of the causative spirochetal bacterium have evolved since it was first described in 1909. Yet, Canadians are routinely told by their doctors that Lyme does not exist in Canada and that there is no such thing as its chronic form – its most devastating form, also known as “the great imitator”: More than 19,000 publications in mainstream clinical journals have shown that chronic Lyme may develop into Parkinson’s, ALS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s, Scleroderma, and up to 50% of Multiple Sclerosis may be due to untreated Lyme infections. The spirochetes cross the placenta and also enter into breast milk, so many cases of autism have been proven to be due to the Lyme spirochete.
Canadian doctors are frequently persecuted by their licensing authorities when treating Chronic Lyme cases according to international standards; the Canadian Blood Services do not even screen for Lyme (as most other countries do, including the US), and Canada’s Medicare system endorses only tests for Lyme known to produce false negatives and Canada’s doctors are not permitted to use tests that are internationally known to be reliable.
This book examines the reasons for this corruption of medicine and erosion of public health standards in Canada.
