The official case definition of Lyme disease, since the 1994 CDC Dearborn conference, is an autoimmune arthritic knee. Allen Steere knowingly and intentionally threw out the “seronegative” cases to narrow the definition to the approximately 15% of cases that have an arthritic knee and no other symptoms.
Have you ever wondered why a rheumatologist was put on the Lyme disease case when the first “outbreak” was reported in the mid 1970s? It is sometimes said that as a rheumatologist, Steere saw what he was trained to see, and therefore the disease was simply mischaracterized. But his vast research bibliography proves that he indeed knew the sickest patients were seronegative and that the different outcomes were largely dictated by genetics. There are the few monoarticulate knee arthritis people, then there are the rest of us who are varying degrees of sick for the rest of our lives.
So, why was a draft-dodging rheumatologist an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer? And why would the EIS want a rheumatologist in the first place, versus a scientist trained in microbiology and epidemiology?
Is it possible the CDC already knew what was going on with “Lyme disease” and Allen Steere was their intended “cleaner”? How would they have known?
Have you ever wondered why Lyme diagnostics are categorized as syphilis tests by the FDA?
Have you ever wondered if there is an arthritic knee outcome of syphilis?
This is not an April Fool’s prank.
