You can watch a series of interviews with this tirelessly working retired medical doctor Alan MacDonald here, about the biology of Lyme.
Part 1: This is a 30 minute video with Dr. Alan MacDonald, a retired M.D. and board certified in Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology. This revealing interview from May 2013 (three parts) covers many misunderstandings associated with Lyme disease:
- Brains and eyes as infection sanctuary sites
- Cloaking of spirochetes in complementary proteins
- Borrelia lifeforms: biofilms, communities, persisters, liposomes
- Syphilis spirochetes and similararities
- Spirochetes similar in biofunction as sperm
- Anatomy of a tick assault
- Six ways of evading the human immune system
- The CDC and Borrelia biofilms
- Atomic force microscopy: confirms Borrelia biofilms
- 101 strains of Borrelia, 150 global genotypes
- Babesiosis types
- Why strain variation makes testing inaccurate
