The only money that needs to be spent on "Lyme
disease" is the prosecution of Yale for having an
accurate, early, and specific test for Lyme disease
(meeting all of FDA's criteria for a valid test, and
patent applied for in 1993, assigned US patent no.
5,618,533), but not allowing us to use it because they
wanted to pass off a bogus Lyme vaccine and be a part
of the monopoly on national testing for Lyme.
All the rest of the borrelioses can use the same type
of borrelia-specific flagellin test. Borrelioses are
permanent nervous system infections. See the videos
on my website and verify independently that these are
the FDA's rules for a method validation. That is, CALL
SOMEONE AT THE FDA and ask them to explain methods
validations to you.
The only money that needs to be spent is on the
courts. The investigatory work has already been done.
There are 5 boxes of RICO data in the office of US
Attorney Kevin O'Connor- who should go to jail for
being another DCF-Rowlandgate slut, along with the
current governor, M. Jodi Rell.
The trial should last all of one day. Just ask Yale's
Erol Fikrig or Richard Flavell the meaning of all
their reports and then put an FDA rep on the witness
stand. If you want to bag Steere, just ask him what
he said to the Academy of Insurance Medicine in 1992,
and how that conflicts with his first pronouncement on
the serodiagnosis of Lyme.
(Yes, Kevvy-Boy O'Connor has had all this data for
nearly 3 years.)

Rep. Smith Pushes For Lyme Disease Bill As NJ Cases
July 14 2006, 1:43 PM EDT
WASHINGTON -- The record number of Lyme disease cases
reported last year in New Jersey worries Rep. Chris
Smith, who is lobbying for a bill that would increase
funding for research and education of the disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, New Jersey ranked third in the country in
2004 in reported Lyme disease cases, the most recent
year for which the agency has figures. In 2005, Smith,
R-Hamilton, said there were 3,372 reported cases in
New Jersey, a record high. Connecticut was fifth with
To address the problem, Smith this week held a meeting
with CDC officials, other lawmakers, doctors and
"This meeting helped to move the dialogue forward,"
Smith said. The congressman said he has become
increasingly concerned about reports of people who go
untreated due to the lack of a standard diagnostic
"What we need are concrete actions on the part of CDC
and other agencies that will result in tangible help
for the large numbers of Americans desperately ill
with this disease," Smith said.
According to the CDC, Lyme disease is transmitted to
humans by the bite of infected black-legged ticks.
Ticks prefer wooded and bushy areas with high grass.
May, June and July are when ticks that transit Lyme
disease are most active.
Most cases can be treated successfully with a few
weeks of antibiotics if the disease is caught in time.
Steps to prevent Lyme disease include using insect
repellent, removing ticks promptly, landscaping to get
rid of ticks and integrated pest management.
Symptoms of the disease may include fever, headache,
fatigue, and sometimes a rash, which may look like an
expanding bull's eye. If not diagnosed and treated
early, Lyme disease can lead to chronic illness and
can affect every system in the body, including the
central nervous system and cardiac systems.
The disease is most prevalent in the Northeast. One of
the reasons is that the black-legged ticks do well
during the summer when it's humid and the soil is
In 2004, the most recent year for which the CDC has
figures, the five states with the most reported cases
of Lyme disease were: New York (5,100), Pennsylvania
(3,985), New Jersey (2,698), Massachusetts (1,532),
and Connecticut (1,348).
Smith is also pushing for passage of his Lyme and
Tick-Born Disease Prevention, Education and Research
Act. The measure, supported by more than 70 bipartisan
lawmakers, would authorize an increase in the research
and education of Lyme disease to $20 million per year
over five years.
The bill would improve tests used to diagnose Lyme
disease, enhance the public health surveillance
systems and improve the public education campaign to
prevent new cases of Lyme disease. It also would
create a federal task force on Lyme disease.
Earlier this month, New York state health officials
said an aggressive type of tick has migrated from
southeastern states and gained a foothold on Long
Island, raising new concerns about Lyme disease. Sen.
Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has also called on the
federal government to be more active in fighting the
disease, and has a bill that would authorize $100
million for Lyme disease research.
