Awareness of tick-borne diseases is critical in order to prevent an increase in incidence of the disabling conditions that accompany them. Tick-Borne is a comprehensive identification and explanation of the various diseases in the United States transmitted by tick bites and known to medical science to date.
There have been three new diseases listed in the past few years, including a strange allergy to meat that is carefully explained. The book includes an anecdotal from someone who has this 'meat allergy ' called Alpha-gal from a Lone Star tick bite.
Many of the tick-borne diseases alter the life of someone who has been bitten but they can also kill. In addition more veterinary specialists are seeing similar horrors with dogs, cats, cattle and other livestock. Tick-borne is a book written for the lay person to better understand what some are calling a plague from the tiny parasite that has been walking the earth for millions of years. The best we can do at this point is prevention and education.
