In response to the broadcasting of the documentary 'Cheating or Borreliose' in Denmark and recently also in the Netherlands, a report was submitted to TV2, the government-owned television institution in Denmark that made and sold the documentary. In this second article you can read a shorter and simplified version of it, so everyone can understand its essence and can see why the documentary is indeed contributing to the violation of human rights of Lyme patients.
The documentary 'Cheating or Borreliose' was broadcasted in 2016 in Denmark and recently also in the Netherlands with the name 'Undercover in the German Lyme clinics'. This lead to a report being submitted to TV2, the government-owned television institution in Denmark, which made and sold the documentary. It is an example of how the official recording of human rights abuses by the United Nations can be used to protect Lyme patients.
Many people don’t understand why I made Lyme my business, as I am not offering a medical solution for it. Why would I spend years of my life educating the public about it and working to connect professionals from different backgrounds to create impact? What makes Lyme so different from any other health issue? Why does the social-emotional side of Lyme seem to hurt even deeper or his a larger impact than the physical side of it?
Recently Dutch national television highlighted how at least fifty parents of children with Lyme were accused of child abuse by the Child Protection Services during the last two years.
In the prior post about the events on Friday the thirteenth, when an ill girl with Lyme was forcibly taken away from her parents, I promised to try and explain what seems to happen in situations like this. Based on what grounds do Child Protection Services interfere with a family life, which was under strain already?
