Lyme Disease Infections have become epidemic in recent years. Traditional treatments don't seem to be effective. Could Bee Venom Relieve Lyme Disease Sufferers a new study suggests just that.
People that are commonly infected with Lyme disease spend time outdoors. Activities that increase risk of infection include playing in grass or woods, hiking and camping.
Of course you shouldn't let Lyme stop you from being outdoors. Lyme is preventable, it is said that the tick must be on you for 24 to 48 hours in order to transmit Lyme infection.
