According to the Mayo Clinic, Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in North America and Europe. Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Deer ticks, which feed on the blood of animals and humans, can harbor the bacteria and spread it when feeding. During the summer, exposure to these ticks is great, especially for children who spend a great deal of time outdoors. However, there are a number of things parents can do to prevent Lyme Disease.
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show as host, June Stoyer talks to health advocate and author, Sharon Rainey about what parents need to know to protect their children from being infected with Lyme Disease, prevention tips and also what to do if you are infected. Stay tuned!
