Baby Boomers Urged to Get Hepatitis C Test

The Centers for Disease Control is urging all U.S. baby boomers to get tested for the Hepatitis-C virus.

One in 30 people born from 1945 through 1965, has unknowingly been infected.

Hepatitis-C causes serious liver diseases, including liver cancer, the fastest-rising cause of cancer-related deaths and the leading cause of liver transplants.

More than 2-million Hepatitis-C infected baby boomers, account for more than 75-percent of all American adults living with the virus.
