Seems to be a scam to me but yesterday the MSM was reporting that the CDC wants all baby boomers to get a one time only hepatitis C blood test. Apparently they think there are baby boomers walking around with the hepatitis C virus who don't know it.
A couple things. Why just baby boomers? And who pays for the test which runs about $100? And what assurances do we that this is not a scam to get collect DNA? Why an illnesses that is blood borne and that many have not been in a situation to get it? I bet even some MDs are rolling their eyes on this one. Chances are that 99.999% will turn out negative. Why not cut a jet plane or two from the defense budget to pay for the tests for everyone? If you demand things like this then the country MUST have Single Payer health care.
