Senate bill fights silent killer hepatitis C
San Francisco Chronicle

Hepatitis C is a silent killer.

If you have had a blood transfusion or have shared needles for any reason at any point in your life, the hep C virus can find you. It might have already, decades ago, and you might not know it. And it might kill you.

Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are the most susceptible. You are five to six times more likely to have this infection than other adults. But a bill in the state Senate might save your life.
