A gripping tale of microbes, medicine and money, Under our skin exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time. Each year, thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are 'all in their head.' Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a chilling picture of the health care system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients.

The Bio-Ethics Commission discussed spirochetes and the purpose of the use of them related to the Guatemala and Tuskegee experiments. The Commission was debunked when the Obama era ended, but it was mainly a Group Think. Most of the participants had a DR. in front of their name. It did hit upon the subject that treatments for a cure were discouraged by certain physicians because it interfered with their research and the other Dr.s listened because they did not want to lose their license to Practice. One of the purposes of the research was to see if there was a Bio-medical element that could quickly disable a large number of troops in the battlefield.
Other ethics violations included the treatment of certain patients for preventing the onset of Aids while other were given a placebo and were not informed which pill they were receiving. This is another example of how corrupt the medical system is and to question their power to make decisions that affect us all.

If you watch Part one you must watch Part Two: Emergence as well so you see the hope in the treatments.
