Lyme Disease is on the Rise

If you’ve been paying attention to the news in recent weeks, you’ve probably heard a lot of discussion surrounding Lyme disease. The occurrences of Lyme disease, a disease that is spread by ticks, have been steadily rising across the country in recent years. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the number of actual cases is as much as ten times higher than what is being reported. This is partially because the symptoms of Lyme disease can mimic those of other illnesses, making it difficult to diagnose.
