May 10-11th in over 20 countries there will be a protest for people with Lyme & tick-borne diseases. The problem is the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) is has major conflicts of interests including patenting the organism that causes Lyme disease. They have set up the diagnostic and treatment guidelines. Patients around the world are not being diagnosed and those that have been diagnosed are being refused treatment because health care insurance providers do not want to pay. Millions are effected. Lives are ruined. We do not want to have to do this protest again. Insights welcome.
