Dr Allen Steere discovered Lyme disease and discusses what he saw and did when confronted early in his career with a previously undescribed disease. Late stage disease, a form not commonly seen today, is discussed in detail since that is how the disease presented before its cause was determined.

What do you get when you send a rheumatologist to spearhead research into what turns out to be an infectious disease?

Listen to this 23 minute interview to get an idea. 8-)

Gee, I don't even have to listen to 23 minutes of that to know the answer.

My question would be why the earlier publications of Steere and friends were more likely to tell the truth, but suddenly someone called "about face" and everything changed to the pack of lies they publish now. Why did this happen?
