Liver association recommends widespread testing for hep-C

The Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver has released a new set of guidelines recommending anyone born between 1945 and 1975 be tested for hepatitis-C.

The association says more than 250,000 Canadians may be infected with the virus but most are not aware they have it.

In some cases it can take decades before sufferers start showing symptoms.
