CDC: All baby boomers should be tested for hepatitis C
The CDC released new guidelines encouraging people born from 1945 to 1965 to get a one-time blood test for hepatitis C. According to the agency, 1 in 30 baby boomers has the disease, but only a fraction have been diagnosed. The additional testing could identify 800,000 new cases and prevent more than 120,000 deaths linked to the virus, CDC said.
