Topic: All Baby Boomers Should Get Tested for Hepatitis C

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) urges all US baby boomers to take a blood test for Hepatitis C.

One in 30 baby boomers may be infected with the hepatitis C virus, but few know it until it's too late for their livers.

Hepatitis C virus causes progressive damage to the liver and can go undetected for many years without symptoms.
