Lyme Disease in Canada
Lyme Disease is a common vector-borne disease now found in all Canadian provinces and is expected to grow with the increased speed of tick invasion. One of the top 10 misdiagnosed diseases in the world, this multi-system infection can attack a person's heart, brain, muscles, bones, digestive system, skin, eyesight, hearing and more. It can cause symptoms that mimic Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer's and Parkinsonism resulting in a prolonged misdiagnosis.
