The Poughkeepsie Journal series “No Small Thing” goes where no other newspaper or media outlet has - it challenges the mainstream medical dogma on Lyme disease. In rigorously documented articles, Projects Writer Mary Beth Pfeiffer concludes that the major actors in this public health scandal -- chiefly the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Infectious Disease Society of America - have minimized and mismanaged a burgeoning epidemic of tick-borne disease at great harm to thousands of infected people. These two powerful institutions have held - in policy and pronouncement -- that Lyme disease is easy to diagnose and easy to cure. It is neither.
