dansbrother, my doctor told me that the hep C test had only become available in '92.
You wrote, " I have read that people that have got Hepatitis C have none of the risk factors of Blood Borne Contact." I think what you may have read was that some people seem to have none of the usual risk factors for the disease. There seemingly are some people who have no idea how they got the hep C (but call me skeptical.) The majority of those with hep C, like myself, were contaminated by dirty needles/needle sharing in hard drug use. There are also a good portion who contracted it through transfusions, as blood was not being tested for hep C (much like it wasn't tested for HIV/AIDS prior to knowledge about it.) There are others who got it through using razors, toothbrushes, etc., that were used by those with hep C. For that to happen, the person using the appliance would have to have an open sore or nick themselves with the blade, etc. It is definitely a blood-borne disease. If a woman who has hep C has sex during her period, and a condom isn't used, she is putting her partner at risk. There have been babies born with hep C, contracted from the mother either through the placenta or in passage through the birth canal. It might be best to confine your reading to sites like the American Liver Foundation, that have solid, verifiable info. ;) Of course, this site usually also has excellent info.
