Learn About Lyme Disease, Just Like Your ABC’s
Learning your ABC’s as a child, you were more than likely subjected to some catchy tune from Sesame Street that helped you to remember the alphabet. Jingles and songs are great methods to making things memorable. We’ve all had that tune play over and over in our own heads haven’t we? And it’s likely that you retained the information that you were being subjected to.
Isn’t it amazing how you can remember all the words to Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, but you can’t remember where you put your car keys? There is a reason why all those old children’s classics have stuck with you over the years and something you did thirty minutes ago is completely gone from your memory. Songs are a great way to help anyone learn and remember.
Of course, it’s not just kids that benefit from learning by song! Or in the following example by ‘rap’ because us adults can be educated too. Here’s a little something that might just help get the message across and clear, to all about Lyme disease.
Between the rising temperatures and a growing population of white-footed mice, scientists are predicting a rise in ticks. While most animals can carry ticks, white-footed mice host a bacteria that causes Lyme disease. When a tick feeds on mouse blood, the tick acquires Lyme disease and can then pass it along to other animals or humans. Whether your summer is being filled with gardening, hiking, or just enjoying the great outdoors, brush up on these 5 tips to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease.
We hope that this rhyme spreads awareness of Lyme. Share it for others to learn from. Educate about Lyme disease, just as you learnt your ABC’s.
