IS LYME DISEASE A NEW ILLNESS?




IS LYME DISEASE A NEW ILLNESS?

Actually Lyme Disease is not new. It has been around North America for over 60,000Years. Originally Lyme Disease was thought to have been sparked by a recent introduction of the Borrelia Bacterium, making it more transmissible to humans. None of this is true. The deforestation and explosion of the deer population in the last century created optimal conditions for the spread of ticks. This then triggered the ongoing Lyme epidemic.

Lyme has been reported in 49 states, although 90% of Lyme Disease cases have occurred from Maine to Virginia. It has also been prevalent in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. On the west coast, Lyme Disease has been reported in Northern California and Oregon. Lyme Disease is also found in Europe, across the former Soviet Union, China, and Japan.

Different strains of Borrelia Bacterium cause Lyme Disease. The strain in North America is different from the strains in other places in the world, but they all cause Lyme Disease.
