Lyme disease conjures memories of checking for ticks at camp and fretting over bug bites after hikes in the woods. But far from a summertime nuisance, Lyme is a potentially debilitating disease - and the subject of a vigorous debate in modern medicine.
Lyme disease makes the headlines but there are plenty of additional reasons to avoid tick bites. New research highlights the latest in a growing list of tick-borne threats -- a distant relative of Lyme that's easy to confuse with other illnesses.
The summer is almost here and while many New Jersey residents are looking forward to some fun in the sun, it's also a time when insect populations transmit diseases that can and should be avoided. Among the insects are ticks that transmit Lyme Disease and mosquitoes that transmit the West Nile Virus.
A group of lawmakers is pushing for a national strategy to combat Lyme disease aimed at speeding advances in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the sometimes serious illness that infects tens of thousands of people every year.
