She was a technology writer for apple and other Silicon Valley companies welcome to the program. Chris good to be with you. Thanks. Thanks for inviting me to speak today. This is a different very important topic. How in the world you come up with this idea forbidden? Well. The actual book book project started I had done this documentary in Lyme disease. I had a pretty deep background about it. And and the film did really well, it really educated a lot of people about how serious this disease can be it's it's caused by tick bites. It's a little bacterium that's transmitted by tick bites and treat it early. You know, you can get rid of it super fast. But if it lingers it can cause permanent chronic disease, but the idea for the book came from. Mine had sent me a videotape of the discover on disease Willie burger for who is in his late eighties. And he confessed that he thought the outbreak of Lyme disease which began in the the the seventies and that was caused by biological weapons. Release and. I just thought it was. Shocking because it was crazy at the time. Because of my work with the documentary and just interviewing hundreds of patients and experts. There was always something that seemed a little wrong about the disease compared to other diseases. But you know, Willie Bergdorf irt he was respected scientists he had the most to lose by making that confession. Because what he was saying he lied about the discovery which was announced in eighty two. So in at the time of the interview, he would he had advanced Parkinson's. His speech wasn't clear. I mean, he he's a mentally with it. But it just seemed like it was a really important thing to get to the bottom of for public health to know this and explain why the diseases so controversy and political about how to treat it and where it came from. So at that point, I said, I I'm just curious. I just have to get to the bottom of it and much into this five year investigation into the biological weapons program into Willie life to really determine is this is this a credible thing. He's talking about the book primarily deals with with Willie. Of course, the scientists, and we're going to get deep into his life, and I'll even came up with this possibility now, the line disease that we talk about that we all have known about as you mentioned you get it from tick. That's the you know has this infectious bacteria in it. And they're supposed to be able to treat it with any. -biotics is that the case? If you get it early in the first few weeks yet, it seems like most people can recover nicely. But the problem with the way the disease is now is a lot of people don't see the tech or they don't see. The rash that often shows up when there's a tick bite. So they just come down with a summer flu. It's just typical flu symptoms nothing specific, and they go to their doctor and their doctor says, well, it's probably a virus. You know, come back. If you weeks of it isn't cured misdiagnosed, it they misdiagnose it. And then sometimes like patients come in with Thrasher tick, and they administer the line test. They say, well, let's take a wait and see attitude, and they ministered the test. But the test is not very reliable for lime disease in the first month. So that person might be told by the doctor was negative carry on. And then they begin months if not years of misdiagnoses because they don't know the test is bad at the forty year old test. So that's that's a complicating factor. And even when some when some people are treated with antibiotics after a month or two ten. Twenty percent.

So that's that's a complicating factor. And even when some when some people are treated with antibiotics after a month or two ten to twenty percent of them go on to become chronically ill. And that's always been a mystery. And it's created quite a divide in controversy around this disease because the academic researchers that study lines say it's easy to treat. It's easy to cure. But the experience of these people's go who go on to get chronically ill is diametrically opposed. And they're saying, no, we are sick. And it's a real disease and academe exercise. But our test says you don't have time. So you must be linger hypochondria or must be suffering from the aches and pains daily living. So when you when you talk about chronic, Lyme disease. What does that actually mean? So using that term is pretty controversial. It just means after you've been treated, you go on to have these chronic symptoms, which can be chronic pain, joint pain, headaches, neurological, problems cheese, witching muscles, mostly brain fog. So you just can't think and is common go. Yes. It's it's it it, waxes and wanes a lot like multiple sclerosis symptoms. I mean, so I mean, I've had the disease, and I would I would describe it as at any given time you'll have a combination of symptoms like chronic fatigue or early onset Alzheimer's arthritis or multiple sclerosis or brain fog, your life becomes a living. Hell, and you you can't function Christie with us. We're gonna take a quick break. We'll come back and talk more about your work bitten the secret history of Lyme disease and biological weapons.

This is a different very important topic. How in the world did you come up with this idea forbidden? The actual book book project started I had done this documentary in line today.

It's little 'Bacterial that's transmitted by tick bites and t treat it early. You know, you can get rid of it super fast. But if it it lingers it can cause permanent chronic disease, but the idea for the book came from. A friend of mine had sent me a videotape of the discover lime disease Willie Bergdorf who is in his late eighties. And he confessed that he thought the outbreak of Lyme disease which began in the the the seventies and that was caused by biological weapons. Release and. I just thought it was. Shocking because it was crazy at the time. Because of my work with the documentary and just interviewing hundreds of patients and experts there there was always something that seemed a little wrong about the disease compared to other diseases, but you know, Willie Bergdorf for he was respected scientists he had the most to lose by making that confession. Because what he was saying he lied about the discovery which was announced in eighty two. So in at the time of the interview, he would he had advanced Parkinson's. His speech wasn't clear. I mean, he mentally with it. But it just seemed like it was a really important thing to get to the bottom of for public health to know this and explain why the disease so controversy and political about how to treat it and where it came from. So at that point, I said, I I'm just curious. I just have to get to the bottom of it. And I launched into this five year investigation into the biological weapons program into Willie's life to really determine is this is this. It's credible thing. He's talking about the book primarily deals with with Willie. Of course, the scientists, and we're going to get deep into his life, and how even came up with this possibility. Now, the lime disease that we talk about that we all have known about as you mentioned you get it from a tick. That's the you know has this infectious bacteria in it. And they're supposed to be able to treat it with any -biotics. Is that the case? If you get it early in the first few weeks yet, it seems like most people can recover nicely.
