The Center for disease control believes all baby boomers are likely to be infected with the quiet killer Hepatitis C residing in their liver. They wish to test everyone born anywhere between 1945 and 1969.
I willing to bet that Hepatitis C was in the vaccines during those years!

Every American born between 1945 and 1965 should be tested for the liver-destroying virus hepatitis C, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Thursday.
One in 30 Baby Boomers is infected with the virus and most don't know it. Hepatitis C is a leading cause of liver cancer and other liver diseases, and is the leading cause of liver transplants, the CDC said.
"And deaths from hepatitis C have nearly doubled over the past decade," CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said during an afternoon news conference. "Unless we take action now, deaths will increase substantially in the coming years."
