Celebrity Hepatitis

Viral Hepatitis comes in five forms: A,B,C,D, & E. Four million Americans are infected with hepatitis C, which kills as many as 10,000 yearly. There is no cure.

Recent studies have shown that the Hepatitis C virus or HCV can survive outside the body and still transmit infection for 16 hours, but not longer than 4 days. Compare this to the "fragile" HIV virus that does not survive more than a few minutes outside the body.

The following celebrities have or had Hepatitis C:

  • Pamela Anderson: "Baywatch" TV star
  • Rolf Benirschke: football player-San Diego
  • David Crosby: rock star
  • Willie Dixon: blues musician (died 1992)
  • Freddy Fender: singer
  • Allen Ginsberg: poet laureate (died 1997)
  • "Superstar" Billy Graham: WWF wrestling champion
  • Larry Hagman: "Dallas" TV star
  • Dusty Hill: ZZTop bass player
  • Stormie Jones: 1st heart+liver transplant recipient (died 1990)
  • Naomi Judd: Country singer
  • Ken Kesey: author- "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (died 2001)
  • Evel Knievel: motorcycle daredevil
  • Phil Lesh: Grateful Dead bass player
  • Lance Loud: TV actor/journalist-PBS "An American Family"
  • Linda Lovelace: "Deep Throat" porn star (died 2002)
  • Jack Kevorkian: "Doctor Death"
  • Mickey Mantle: baseball player (died 1995)
  • Benito Mussolini: Italian dictator
  • Chuck Negron: singer (Three Dog Night: "Joy to the World")
  • James Earl Ray: assassin of Martin Luther King Jr.(died 1998)
  • Frank Reynolds: ABC news anchor (died 1981)
