New CDC Reports Demonstrate the expansion of the disease territory and numbers of new cases per year in the U.S.
In an effort to simple the message simple and therefore more useable to the average reader, I will attempt to summarize what I have read to the key points.
Tick Bites Transfer Blood-bore Disease
Lyme Disease is is most commonly acquired as a infection disease in people occurs thru a Tick bite. The bite transfers your blood to the Tick, and the Tick’s bacterial infection to the person. Many times, this goes unnoticed by the person, while other times the bite leaves a distinctive bullseye mark.
The bacterial associated with Lyme Disease is called Borrelia burgdorferi and the disease is also called Lyme borreliosis. Keep in mind, Ticks also carry a number of other bacterial or parasites known as co-infections, such as Bartonella, Erchichia, and Babesia.
“Ticks are responsible for more than 75 percent of the vector-borne illnesses reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) every year. The most common of these is Lyme disease with 30,000 to 40,000 annual reported cases—though the CDC estimates the actual number of cases, most of which go unreported, could be more than 400,000 annually.“, per Melissa Mayer.
