Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is a devastating infectious disease transmitted by ticks. Lyme can be transmitted sexually, during pregnancy, and persist for very long periods, causing debilitating conditions. Diagnosis and treatment is bizarrely controversial. As of this writing (late 2009), the Lyme spirochete does not appear to survive in breastmilk, and breastfeeding mothers can be successfully treated with antibiotics.
