Movie Info

About the one of the most controversial illnesses in America today: Lyme disease. Most people think of Lyme disease as that thing you can catch from a tick bite, but few know the true graveness of one of the most dangerous epidemics currently afflicting people across the nation. Here, we examine not just the science of the bacteria that causes Lyme disease and the politics of the controversy but also the personal stories of those whose lives have been affected and nearly destroyed.

    Really good. Really heartbreaking. Really good reason to stay indoors...

    It's the nurse in me that draws me to watch things like this. I never knew there was such controversy surrounding Lyme disease. Somewhat thought provoking - could Lyme disease be the cause of Alzheimers and other diseases? Is it psychosomatic? Was it responsible for the death of Jimmy Hoffa? (Ok, last question I made up.) One problem about watching it - gave me the heebie jeebies for days after.

    Disturbing and eye-opening documentary that examines the growing epidemic of Lyme disease and the seeming denial of its chronic danger by the medical establishment.
