Tick-Borne Disease and Dementia

To my knowledge, first researcher on this topic was Dr Alan MacDonald.  He first became involved with the connection between Alzheimer’s and Lyme (aka Borrelia Burgdorferi), then recently has become involved in the connection between Lewy Body and Lyme.

2022, Dec09 Video 1.5-hours.  “Moving the Needle on Borreliosis” at https://youtu.be/ahpQrO_yr4w .  “Alan B. MacDonald, MD is a hospital pathologist by trade, and his world is microscopic images. He diagnoses disease daily based on the images from surgically removed tissues, blood smears, and microbiology specimens. In his private research, which he does at night or on weekends, he interprets images from diseased tissues. ”  Toward the end of this video, he addresses the question – What role might Borrelia play in Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body Dementia, or cancer?

… Like some of the other Lyme specialists, Dr Alan MacDonald is quite involved in what some term the continuing “Lyme Wars”.  i will leave “comments” open, but will probably simply ignore rants.  i am not interested in spending my energy in that battle, so please don’t share vitrol on my WebSpace.  This is simply sharing Links of possible interest.

Posted 14Dec2022, but will be adding Links (and i want to make a picture for this page also).  Currently no “tags” and no “excerpt”.
