To: The members of the Tick Borne Disease Working Group,
Please take two minutes to view the YouTube video excerpts of Dr. Eugene Shapiro below.
From what is presented here it would appear that Dr. Shapiro is the problem not the solution so how did he end up on the Tick-Borne Disease Working Group? Who was responsible for selecting members of this group?
Under Our Skin - Excerpts of Dr. Eugene Shapiro (1:52)
Open Eye Pictures Transcript:
Woman: "I’ve put a lot of faith in the doctors, I believe them. I wanted to shake them and say how many more kids are you going to let go untreated because you’re not recognizing what’s happening here?"
Shapiro: "I’ve never seen a child who’s had late stage neurologic Lyme disease. We just don’t see late neurologic disease in children."
Lawyer: "Did you testify contrary to Dr. Jones’s opinion in a criminal case in the last several years?"
Lawyer: "Did you ever call him a nut in public?"
Shapiro: "Mmmmm Ahhhh" (Dumbfounded expression)
Shapiro: "Patients develop physical complaints but it’s got a psychological basis."
Man: "Dr. Jones is the best pediatric Lyme doctor in the United States. So the implications for me is that if my son’s Lyme comes back or if we contract it again then when you’ll be taking away the one person that can truly help us. What kind of response would you get if this was a kid with cancer? Everybody and their mother would say this is inhumane."
Shapiro: "The only way Lyme disease is transmitted is through the bite of an Ixodes tick. We know about Lyme disease it’s something we have a good handle on that’s really the bottom line."
