Needle Exchange

World Hepatitis Day

Your DGB for today is to observe World Hepatitis Day.

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by a virus and it's a worldwide epidemic, killing about as many people each year as HIV/AIDS, with 80-90% of those infected unaware of their status. Hepatitis A and E are spread mainly by contaminated water, while B and C are primarily contracted by blood to blood contact.

The best ways to help eradicate these viruses are to vaccinate our children, support clean needle programs, and conserve and protect water, all things which are regressing under our Trumptatorship.

These types of activism also help to control, prevent, and extinguish many other types of disease. So, unless enough people start to care about these causes, we are probably all going to die soon. Enjoy your weekend!
