Tick Season

Season 2014 Episode 20 | 26m 47s | Video has closed captioning.

Lyme disease is commonly thought of as the worst case scenario for a tick bite, but some doctors are now warning that there are other tick-carried pathogens that are making people sick. We examine the lesser known health threats transmitted by the common deer tick. Also, at our Reporters Roundtable, we discuss changes in the Democratic Committee, and the deadline to register assault weapons.
