Tick-Bite Prevention, Education with Poppy Seeds — CDC

Keene resident Dr. Alexis Chesney has released a new eBook titled "Living Tick-Free: Preventing Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease".

On Friday, the CDC proved this point by posting a photo of a seemingly innocuous and delicious-looking poppy seed muffin.

The CDC posted a photo of a poppy seed muffin last week, asking people if they could spot all five ticks hidden on the muffin.

Which ... fine, but now the CDC needs to put its best medical minds on the task of fixing the epidemic of poppy-seed PTSD it's created.

The study comes amid a new report from the CDC that finds ticks and flea bites tripled in the USA from 2004 to 2016.

A close look at the muffin showed that some of the black flecks in the muffin did, in fact, have legs - causing many followers to feel queasy.

As a recent tweet from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) illustrated, they can be easy to miss, and look nearly identical to poppy seeds - especially when they're strategically placed on top of a poppy seed muffin.

The CDC replied with a tongue-in-cheek apology a few days later, saying "Sorry we ticked some of you off". Don't let a tick bite ruin your summer.
