What is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a bloodborne infection, and may result from exposure to blood or body fluids that contain the hepatitis C Virus  (HCV). The hepatitis C Virus can and does damage the liver.

HCV is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. People infected with the hepatitis C virus may carry it for the rest of their lives. Hepatitis C infection may not show any symptoms until the liver is severely damaged by the virus. The virus can cause cirrhosis and scarring of the liver tissue, liver cancer can develop in later stages and liver failure may result over a long period of time (20 to 30 years).

How do you get HCV?  Easier than you think !  As simple as sharing a razor or toothbrush with an infected person – it’s that easy as the video below shows.  It can also be contracted by IV drug use with shared needles, sharing spoons and rinse water and sharing straws and other devices during drug use.   Tattoos with unsterile needles can be a cause of HCV and any other activity that allows HCV infected blood to come in contact with a non-infected host. Blood transfusions before 1991 can also be known to cause HCV.

You cannot get HCV from: Hugging, kissing, eating utensils, tears, saliva, sweat, toilets, shower stalls, tubs, or bedding.
