IN MY OPINION
Challenging Quackwatch's Position on Lyme Disease

By Marjorie Tietjen
Director For Lyme Concerns
Common Cause Medical Research Foundation

The honest unvarnished truth concerning Lyme Disease, it's
co-infections and chronic illness will be exposed. Deception and fraud
eventually bring about their own demise.  This is simply a natural law
of the universe. In the meantime, however, we need to be alert to the
methods used to deceive concerning this particular medical cover up.
Here is a link to the article I am challenging.

The folks at Quackwatch claim they have no financial and or political
ties to government/corporations. Anyone can say this, but it would be
difficult to prove. Actions, attitudes and results speak louder than
words. "By their fruits ye shall know them."  From what I've read on
this website, it appears that the writers are extremely one- sided in
their views and seem inclined to attack and ridicule.

They speak a lot about "approved studies" and base many of their
conclusions on these studies, many of which are carried out by
universities and government agencies which are funded by the drug
companies. Of course, many drug companies directly carry out their own
research studies. Doesn't it seem very likely that their studies would
be heavily biased?

Just for the record, I don't believe that there is a single study out
there that can prove the nonexistence of chronic active Lyme disease,
but there are studies out there that irrefutably prove that Lyme can
still be present in the body after many months of antibiotic
treatment. http://www.lymeinfo.net/lymefiles.html . The Greater
Hartford Lyme Disease Support and Action Group has put up a US$10,000
reward to anyone who can prove that Lyme disease is always cured
within 30 days of antibiotics and can never become actively chronic.
This reward has been posted for over a year now and so far no one has
responded.  Many are beginning to observe that it is the private
researchers, who have no such affiliations, who are being harassed and
labeled as quacks, even when their work produces favorable results.
