Myth: Hepatitis C only affects drug users.
Fact: While people who use injection drugs are at increased risk for hepatitis C, there are a host of factors behind hepatitis C risk. Usually, with any illness, when someone says "only these type of people get this illness," there's a healthy dose of stigma and misinformation involved. We all have livers, and they are all at risk. However, some groups, as mentioned before, are at increased risk for hepatitis C. As such, it is best practice to get tested for hepatitis C regularly.
