Wikipedia and Lies

Wikipedia, the free on line encyclopedia has had excellent articles on Lyme disease. The section on Lyme microbiology shows evidence of the chronicity of the disease. The main article on Lyme treatment only discusses the now discredited IDSA guidelines. A previous wonderful section called "Lyme disease controversy" showed the IDSA guidelines and how the compared to the evidence based ILADS guidelines. This entire section has been edited out. Someone is trying to revise history and science. Shame on you.

So true. Fortunately all past versions of the Wikipedia Lyme article are archived and have stable links. Here's a permanent link to an older version that includes the controversy section:
