I'm not arguing the stigma. And I completely agree that it doesn't matter how anyone acquires the virus. What matters is that we move forward regardless. The social stigma is also deeper than just drug use, it stems a kind of othering that has very deep fear of basic well-being. What i wrote about, is the transmission rates, and that Google needs to list correct medical information.

Excellent work Rick! Thank you for heading the charge. This is unbelievable! After living almost 40 years with this insidious disease, while being in a mongomous marrige for 28 years (most of these years were pre-diagnosis and unknowingly unprotected), my dear wife is Hep C free. Gee, I wonder how that happened?! We even shared the same toothbrush and razor. As of June 22, 2013 my 48 weeks of triple therapy ended. Am I condoning being careless? Absolutely not. Come on GOOGLE! You've painted a stereotype as well, while overlooking the point that many of us were recipients of HCV through blood transfusions. Not all of us look like the art work that you have displayed here. Many of us blend-in with the crowds and look like your typical neighbor, your colleagues at work, or perhaps those at church, etc. Thanks Rick for keeping us in the forefront. My best to you!

Can you explain how the heck I got Hep C then? I have never ever used drugs, I don't drink alcohol, never even smoked pot, yes, it's true never. I have no ink and have never used needles. I was a Healthcare provider in the 80's I was a phlebotomist. Never recall sticking myself by mistake. However, I did have multiple sex partners through my life. Sex was free and felt great! My specialist feels it might have been through sexual contact but as he said what does it matter. Your infected and we need to do something about it. Truthfully, what makes the disease stigma is everything I read is about illicit drug use, cocaine use, needles, etc. With a side note possible sexual exposure. I have never done drugs as I said above but yet if you tell people about the Hep C exposure they look at you and say, wow, how Drugs? I would really like to understand how the hell I got exposed but as my specialist says, it doesn't matter. What matters is I treat and take care of my health. Jake

Knowledge is power and information needs to be correct, according to the CDC my doctor and other reliable sources Hep C is not a sexual transmitted disease, it is transmitted by blood on blood contact, ignorance is a bliss
