Understanding the Bloodsucking Feeding Mechanisms of Ticks to Fight Disease


The Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam is aiming to create a Lyme vaccine by better understanding how the tick's feeding mechanisms and saliva work. ‘We aim for a single vaccine that is capable of preventing transmission to humans either by interfering with transmission or by interfering with tick feeding,’ Dr Hovius of the study explained.

Insect parts? Oh joy..... "Imported spices can often be contaminated with insect parts, animal hairs, various molds and other microscopic fragments.


Insect parts? Oh joy.....
"Imported spices can often be contaminated with insect parts, animal hairs, various molds and other microscopic fragments.

The FDA has rather loose regulations on this. The article notes that a two-ounce jar of paprika must have about 170 insect fragments to be considered bad. Yuck.

Look at the chart to see which imported spices have the most problems. It includes data on mold counts, insects, and other filth. Another great reason to grow your own herbs and spices!"

Green leader pushes bill to deal with Lyme disease


Vermont legislature is considering a Lyme doctor protection bill.


From Dr Horowitz - I have been finding high burdens of heavy metals such as mercury and lead in my Lyme-MSIDS patients for years.

From Dr Horowitz - I have been finding high burdens of heavy metals such as mercury and lead in my Lyme-MSIDS patients for years. These heavy metals may contribute to ongoing symptoms, and detoxification can be effective in relieving resistant symptoms in certain individuals . Although larger fish such as tuna and swordfish are known to contain higher levels of mercury, the Maine Department of Marine Resources just reported high levels in Maine lobsters, leading to closure of the harvesting site for several years.

Lyme disease patients with chronic persistent symptoms despite antibiotics should be checked for heavy metal burdens as well as other environmental toxins. The role of heavy metals in Lyme disease is discussed in pages 198-200 in my book, as well as in chapter 8, Lyme and environmental toxins.
