The tick-borne illness Lyme disease is on the rise — but many patients and their advocates say the disease is often underestimated, misdiagnosed and improperly treated. We discuss the effects of Lyme disease and the controversy surrounding its diagnosis and treatment.

Guests:
Pamela Weintraub, author of the book "Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic"
Kris Newby, senior producer of the documentary "Under Our Skin: An Infectious Film about Microbes, Money and Medicine"
Dr. Eugene Shapiro, professor in the department of pediatrics at the Yale University School of Medicine
