18. There's no value judgement from me here. A virus is a nonjudgmental
bundle of nucleic acids. Doesn't give a damn if transmitted through sex, smack shooting, tattoos, occupational injury or other dumb luck.

I work in health care and am at risk for contracting these. Despite the HIV stigma I think Hep C if anything is a bigger concern than HIV because of its prevalence, greater transmissibility, and high odds of causing long term liver problems/cirrhosis if contracted.
