Episode Description:

Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is endemic to our state, and residents are at high risk. Massachusetts reported nearly 4,000 confirmed cases of Lyme disease in 2008, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That was a jump of some 33 percent from 2007. The state is now second in the nation in the number of cases reported. Exactly what is Lyme disease? How is it transmitted? How can we protect ourselves from this infectious disease? And what treatments are available for those who do get the disease?
