After suffering mysterious, debilitating symptoms for years, 11-year-old Julia receives a controversial diagnosis of Chronic Lyme Disease, an illness dismissed by many. Gaslit by doctors and insurance companies at nearly every turn, Julia and her father are left with no choice but to take desperate action— thrusting their family into the middle of a contentious debate dating back nearly 50 years. A disturbing investigation reveals a paper trail of suppressed scientific research on why ticks—and the diseases they carry—have been allowed to quietly spread around the world. A powerful indictment of institutional corruption, Lindsay Keys and Winslow Crane-Murdoch’s THE QUIET EPIDEMIC is a tribute to those working tirelessly to uncover the truth and find a solution.
