Subject: Correspondence between Doctor Edwin J. Masters and Dr. David Dennis Chief; Bacterial Zoonoses Branch

To the Tick Borne Disease Working Group,

For the record I would like to share the attached correspondence between Doctor Edwin J. Masters and Dr. David Dennis Chief; Bacterial Zoonoses Branch dated 1992 as an example of the CDC’s long history of incompetence/deception in the management of Lyme disease. The letters are in reference to Lyme disease in the south and we know now through Quest Diagnostics [1] that Lyme has been detected in each of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.

Doctor Edwin J. Masters letter:

We are dealing with a life-altering/life-threatening infection with faulty/misleading antibody tests, inadequate treatment, no medical training and absolutely no disease control.

A plague denied; essentially classifying this disease as a low-risk and non-urgent health threat.

To gain an understanding of Dr. Masters’ background in Lyme disease you will want to read the following article: (The CDC’s manipulation of data is appalling)

Rebel with a Cause: The Incredible Dr. Masters, Part 1

He braved hand-to-hand combat with CDC over Lyme in the South.

“Front and center in the debate over the existence of Lyme disease in the southern U.S.  was the country doctor, Edwin J. Masters of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, who reveled in fighting for a cause.”

Respectfully Submitted,

Carl Tuttle
