Insty links to news that the media’s #1 tick-bourne disease starlet isn’t the only nasty thing out there.
I knew that Lyme wasn’t the only thing to worry about – I know of one poor soul with Lyme who suffers an upsurge in some other tickbourne co-infection every time they manage to stamp down the Lyme. It’s enough to make you want to stay inside your house all day, inventing a nanomachine capable of eradicating ticks entirely. Those and mosquitos.
The medical community has really been caught with their pants down on this stuff, too. Antibiotics have made them complacent, which is probably going to last until the first few hundred thousand people die raving mad from antibiotic-resistant syphilis. /pessimism
