Under Our Skin

Misha and I just began watching Under Our Skin (www. underourskin.com):

“A gripping tale of microbes, medicine & money, UNDER OUR SKIN exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time. Each year, thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are all in their head. Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of the health care system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients.”

I can’t wait to finish it tonight.  It is hard to believe there is so much controversy and divide over Lyme Disease and it’s treatment.  The film furthers my questioning of how many people (kids especially) have Lyme Disease without knowing it.

If you do get a chance to watch Under Our Skin, please let me know what you think.  It’s eye opening for me.

One thought on “Under Our Skin

  1. The documentary is quite shocking…especially to those of us who have led our lives in blissful ignorance. The stastics of Lyme are staggering. Why is the government and the Centers for Disease Control keeping the Lyme epidemic under wraps?
