Old Relative Risk Site Under New Management

I decided that I need a second blog to make short posts which are more focused and possibly text-centric. And I decided to put Relative Risk's old web address to new purpose, because I figure I will already be picking up a blog within a blog site I'm already familiar with, and know how to use the to...

Re: Patient-Formulated Lyme Disease Survey Draft

CL19 - Stellar job! Agreed! I added some comments/questions and moved some stuff around (just a little tiny bit). I also tried to answer any questions you left, but I don't know most of the answers, so we'll either have to wait for someone who knows better or make the decisions on our own. I did lo...

Re: LymeInfo's "Lyme Files" are gone

Thanks for pointing this out, Martian. I did check out the link and yes, it appears that several pages' worth of pdf files have been removed from the website by the original owner/compiler of the abstracts listed. I wasn't aware until now that someone other than the site owner had put those files on...

Re: Remarkable diversity of Borreliae in the metropol. SF ar

Not to worry. An NIH insider who shall remain nameless personally assured me that B miyamotoi would not amount to anything worth being concerned over. This right on the heels of an 85 year old woman in Flemington, NJ being infected - where by all conventional and formal Lyme governance, B miyamotoi...

Re: Remarkable diversity of Borreliae in the metropol. SF ar

"...two of which were related phylogenetically to European spirochetes." Now how can that be? Eight Borrelial genospecies around San Fran, two of which are related to European cousins? Using NIH/CDC calculus, that wouldn't add up. Of course, humans were not tested. I tweeted the link to this study ...

Re: Patient-Formulated Lyme Disease Survey Draft

Please include me in the list of editors, too.

I would like to work on some other sections here first as a rough draft, too - to be included/merged later.

Re: First College Essays

My son's first college essay topic: "Are you a product of your environment? Yes or no, and defend your position." Sigh. I think the professor was looking for nurture vs. nature stuff, tabula rasa vs outside influences, innate and instinctual variables, personality development as a byproduct of soci...

Re: Patient-Formulated Lyme Disease Survey Draft

OK...Let's not get overwhelmed. Remember, we are all sick here! This is just crazy. All the different treatments doctors have been trying to give us...and NO ONE has ever thought to evaluate the efficacy of any of them? Isn't this something a government agency should be doing? For the public health...

Re: Patient-Formulated Lyme Disease Survey Draft

Just stepping in here for a moment - with a massive headache - to add something brief: Turning attention back to the content of the survey rather than the implementation and administration, what sections and content specifically remains which needs to be covered? Can someone write up a general outli...

Re: LD: Authentic Imitator or Wishful Imitation?

It is yet another article which seems to be drawn roughly from the same boilerplate of material regarding chronic Lyme disease that I've seen many times before from the same parties. This has an injection of Halperin-speak as well. And as RitaA has pointed out, some of it contradicts existing resear...
