Federal House officials are proposing that all baby boomers get tested for hepatitis C. NPR's Richard Harris tells us the virus kills 15,000 Americans a year. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 2 million people born between 1945 and 1966 are infected with hepatitis C. Most people don't know they are carrying this blood-born virus. But it's a leading cause of liver diseases, including cancer. Hepatitis C is usually tradable if it's detected before someone get seriously ill. So health officials are now calling for a national campaign, indeed, Baby Boomers. Most infected Americans are in that cord, because the virus spread silently for many years before there was a test to detect it. The CBC is proposing a one-time testing campaign aimed at this age group. It could identify 800,000 infections. The recommendation is currently a proposal open to public comment and will be finalized4 later this year. Richard Harris, NPR News.

Indeed, the company received what is likely the first sell rating of its stock that Pivotal Research Group said a per share price of 30 dollars. Wendy Kaufman, NPR News.
