Lyme disease

You wait for a blog post and then three come along at once.

Last but not least, Lyme disease.  News reports like this one in the Guardian report a rise in cases of this tick borne disease.  News reports are investigated in this NHS Choices Behind the Headlines piece.

There is more about Lyme disease here:
