Lone Star Tick and Meat Allergies

This is a little concerning: https://www.wired.com/story/lone-sta...y-be-spreading

Hadn't heard of this before sounds like Doctors and researchers are trying to find the range of this threat.

Stunned the beef and fast food industries are not diverting all funds for an immediate solution.
