This project is about Lyme disease. There are more cases of this disease each year and the disease is passed on from animals to humans through ticks. The disease is caused by the Borrelia Bacteria. When infected the first sign is a red patch usually where the bite occurred. This patch is caused by the immune system attacking the bacterium. The disease will then effect organs like the brain and heart, as well as joints. Facial paralysis and joint pain will occur. When the nervous system is effected it causes hallucinations, panic attacks, depression, and other mental conditions. This disease can be treated with antibiotics for 4 to 6 weeks. People who suspect they have been infected should seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
