Hepatitis

A vaccine for hepatitis B was approved in 1981. The vaccine had been developed at Merck Institute for Therapeutic Research.

James Earl Ray was serving his sentence in prison for killing Martin Luther King, when  he died of hepatitis C in 1998.

In 2012, a Guinness World Record was created when 12,588 people from 20 countries did the Three Wise Monkeys actions on World Hepatitis Day to signify the willful ignorance of the disease.
