Hepatitis C & IV Drug Users - Follow the Series

I am disappointed in the segment about Hepatitis C. While I understand that many people who have contracted the disease are IV drug users, many are not. You have spent most of the time talking about free needle exchange. (I am for that by the way but it should have a segment of it's own) I fear that will make many people feel they are not at risk. I would like to have heard more about the treatment, prognosis, symptoms and interviews of actual people who are going through the VERY difficult chemotherapy that lasts a whole year. I was so excited when I heard you were doing a week on Hepatitis C.There is practically nothing in the media about it. The public barely knows it exists and now they might think it is a disease for drug addicts. Would you want to tell anyone you were infected and have them think you are a drug addict? good grief
