Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change - Author Talk

Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change documents the human contribution to the dangerous spread of Lyme disease to dozens of countries and multitudes of people. In a book based firmly in science, author Mary Beth Pfeiffer shows ticks climbing mountains and crossing borders as temperatures rise and ecosystems altered. As important, Pfeiffer challenges medical dogma that has left many untreated. "Lyme" makes a powerful case for action to combat ticks, address patient pain, and recognize humanity's role in creating an epidemic.
