Hard Science On Lyme: Trials and Tribulations of Getting Borrelia Biofilms Accepted for Publication

Dr. Alan MacDonald, MD, shares an insightful, albeit frustrating article today on the blog, Hard Science On Lyme at It goes along with my previous post of Dr. MacDonald's video interview on the biology of Lyme disease in which he discusses many things Lyme, including the role biofilms play in chronic Borrelia infections.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, as we in the Lyme community well know, Dr. MacDonald and Dr. Eva Sapi are audaciously leading the way in establishing the solid science of Lyme borreliosis. Eventually, the powers that be will have to acknowledge the truth of what they are scientifically proving.

I can't think of a more fitting quote right now than this one by Author Schopenhauer: "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. And third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Thanks to for posting this article and always advocating for the truth of Lyme disease. The intro and link to the blog are below. ~ Michelle
