Yep, all those free-loving, groovy adventures from the past -- even stuff you only tried once -- could have left you with more than you anticipated. Symptoms of hepatitis C can take decades to cause enough liver damage for you to feel sick.

The virus is spread through blood-to-blood contact, so that psychedelic tattoo or piercing you got years ago could have infected you with the virus. Think you're not at-risk? Think again! You could have become infected if you received a blood transfusion before 1990 or even by having shared personal hygiene items like razors or nail clippers.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recently issued its recommendation that all adults born between 1945 and 1965 should have a one-time hepatitis C test. The CLF has extended the recommendation for testing beyond the boomer generation to those born between 1945 and 1975, taking into account immigration from countries where hepatitis C is more common.

Don't be square. Spread the word!

Depuis plus de 40 ans la Fondation Canadienne du Foie offre un soutien fortement appréciée à des milliers d'individus affectés par des maladies du foie. Le 11 Juillet dernier, Yingo eu le plaisir d'animé un évènement spécial avec un invité survivant d'une maladie au foie, Marc Goulet. Monsieur Goulet a généreusement pris le temps de partager son expérience avec la maladie et de répondre à des questions afin d'informer et de sensibiliser le grand public aux réalités se rattachant à l'affection du foie. Nous saluons son courage et sa détermination, et nous remercions toutes les personnes qui nous ont aidés pour l'élaboration de ce projet.

À la mémoire de Marc Goulet 1954-2013
