Some experts believe that rolled-up dollar bills used to snort cocaine and passed person to person can carry enough infected blood to transmit the virus.

WOW! Okay, presumably it can only be passed to you if you stick it directly into your nose, right? What if you handle an infected bill, then rub your eye or blow your nose? Can the virus travel from your hands to your eye or to your nose and give you Hep C that way, too?

It appears some Freepers did a little partying in the 70's. Isn't that special.

Why would anyone want to use a drug that makes them move faster?

About 20 years ago I was working on a ranch in Montana and the owners daughter was this 21 year old hugely breasted blond who wasn’t too bright naturally of course, and one day while she was bending over picking flowers she shot up and screamed and said that something bit her on the breast. Not one to lock the door when opportunity knocks, I asked her to let me see and when she did I told her it looked like a rattlesnake bite which horrified her. Of course it was just a mosquito bite but why throw away the winning lottery ticket? I then said we must act fast, that I must suck out the poison before it took effect and gave her brain damage (impossible). So she let me sck it out which took about 16 hours and of course that led to other things that involved twins but I’ll save that for my autobiography. What I want to know, is it possible may have contracted the virus from trying to save this poor girls life?

I don't know why Hep C is "news" again.
The issue was made public about 10 years ago and I got checked for free at the VA.

The federal government Friday called for all baby boomers to be tested

Don't go. It's a cookbook!

Just another government-sponsored medical scare.

The hepatitis C virus is transmitted by blood and unprotected sex is one way of getting it.
Remember the free love thingy of the sixties?
Maybe Woodstock era wasn’t a good thing after all.

Hippie lights joint and tries to remember.

Anyone who ever did IV drugs or got tattoos from “informal” tattoo artists probably would do well to be tested. I had a relative who passed away a couple of years ago from liver failure due to Hepatitis C. He had been a drug user since we were teenagers. He was in his mid-50’s when he died. By the time he got around to going to the doctor it was way too late.

The hepatitis C virus is transmitted by blood, usually through intravenous drug use or transfusions

Wow, who knew ALL baby boomers had transfusions and are intravenous drug users. I must have been doing some serious tripping since I can't remember either one happening.

If the virus ruined the liver, why do we give Hepatitis C patients another one?

“rolled-up dollar bills used to snort cocaine”

Thankfully we used $100 bills.

How many baby boomers have had colonoscopies? Certainly quite a few in Clark County that were exposed to hep. C. As my nursing school teachers told me over 30 years ago- laproscopic instruments can never be adequately sterilized, only cleaned. Perhaps the concern is really related to that. You know they’ll never tell us the real reason.

I’d love to see a study seeing if there is a correlation between TATOOS and Hep C. All these young people sticking needles and pigment into their skin.

Notice how skillfully they say "... more than AIDs." Notice they didn't say HIV. HIV is an ubiquitous, 9kbase harmless retrovirus. It never killed anyone. Now one can 'acquire' an immune deficiency quite easily when and if one 'insults' one's immune system with massive amounts of 'chain-terminating' cytotoxic drugs, illegal drugs, radiation etc. There is NO syndrome in the history of the world that includes over 30 SEPARATE diseases, and certainly NO syndrome caused by a harmless retrovirus.

Let me warn you now as I have been attempting to warn people since the 'Lancet' article. Government (read Obamacare) healthcare guidelines are going to INSIST that you take whatever cockamamie vaccine they come up with for 'HIV'. And if you refused you will be considered AN ENEMY of the state, fined, and possibly imprisoned. That means you and your CHILDREN. Do NOT let this happen. Obama and the marxists are coming for you, they are GUNNING for you, and they won't stop until they GET you! You were warned.

Let me say just one thing about HEP C. They have never isolated an intact virus, only fragments which they identify as HEP C (or as they used to refer to the fragments non-A, non-B). Every study in which patients with ‘supposedly’ HEP C were treated (interferon, long-term parenteral steroids etc.) clearly demonstrated that mortality was not affected. In other words, whether you treat or don’t treat you will survive equally. My mother was ‘diagnosed’ with HEP C from a transfusion following invasive surgery in 1972 at the age of 50. Tomorrow she celebrates her 90th Birthday and remains in good health. A word to the wise. The marxists are coming for you. Beware.

There are times when I'm glad that I've had a very uneventful,boring,life.This is one of them.A nurse that I worked with contracted AIDS *and* Hep C from an accidental fingerstick (fingersticks happen all too often in medicine).Her life has been a living hell ever since.
