Lyme Disease Awareness -- and a FREE kit

There are 100 documented strains of Lyme disease in the U.S., but the tests used for diagnosis are only based on one. With the Western blot being based only on one strain of the disease, significant numbers of people infected will go undiagnosed, making it much more difficult to cure.

Irwin Vanderhoof*, PhD, Professor at the New York University Stern School of Business estimates that Lyme Disease costs society about $1 billion per year. This includes unnecessary or inappropriate medical care, lost productivity, legal fees, and other direct/indirect expenses. However, the human toll can be high. Patients can have ongoing problems resulting in emotional distress, permanent physical damage, and significant disruption of life (e.g. job loss, divorce, loss of friends or family).
