US Congressmen will test the Pentagon for use of ticks.

The US House of Representatives has called for an investigation into whether the Pentagon is exposing Americans to Lyme disease. In the United States, this disease, which occurs due to infected ticks, has spread for decades, and now affects more than 300,000 Americans every year. However, until now, theories accusing the government of spreading Lyme disease through experiments with biological weapons were considered conspirological.
Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of a tick infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. This can lead to serious infections and a whole series of disorders: fever, joint pain, chronic fatigue and even memory loss, reminds LCI.
The congressmen approved the amendment of Republican Chris Smith, which appealed to the inspector general of the US Department of Defense to determine whether the United States authorities conducted experiments on the use of ticks and other insects as biological weapons between 1950 and 1975.

The investigation, if ultimately conducted, should also determine whether it was a “focused part of the experiment or a tragic mistake”.
Chris Smith, in turn, explains that his inquiry into the investigation is motivated by the fact that "several books and articles state that such research was conducted at US government centers such as Fort Detrick, Maryland or the Center for Animal Diseases on Plum Island." There, he said, experiments were allegedly made in order to "turn ticks and other insects into biological weapons."
One of these sensational books was published in May by the scientist Chris Newby. In his book, Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons, he claims to have gained some recognition from the Swiss scientist, Willy Burgdorfer, who discovered Lyme disease in 1981, claiming that its spread was due to "erroneous military experience." Burgdorfer, who actually worked in the field of biological weapons for the United States, died in 2014.

In 2004, another controversial book claimed that a Nazi scientist, exported by the United States, worked on biological weapons. Lab 257: the confusing story of a secret government laboratory on Plum Island says that he allegedly labored in Lyme, Connecticut, a few kilometers from Pla Island, where the first focus of the disease was discovered. But the author himself, Michael Carroll, later admitted that he had no evidence to that effect.
