THURSDAY, May 5, 2016 (Yahoo! Finance) — The Prevent Cancer Foundation is calling for an increase in screenings and treatment for hepatitis C through their recently launched Think About the Link™ campaign. The campaign efforts are underscored by the release of new studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that reveal hepatitis C kills more Americans than any other infectious disease reported to CDC. According to preliminary CDC surveillance data, deaths associated with hepatitis C reached an all-time high of 19,659 in 2014.
