1 in 30 baby boomers has Hepatitis C

They just mentioned a statistic on CNN that 1 in 30 baby boomers has Hepatitis C. People don't even know they have it (50%-75%). It's potentially deadly and could require a liver transplant. They think it's because of needle sharing back in the day and they never checked for Hepatitis C when they gave blood transfusions back before the 90's. They have drugs to help if you have it. It's a good idea to get checked for it when you see your doctor.

Do you know anyone who's been diagnosed with it?
