    Unhappy Getting hepatitus C from sharing same cup and tub?

    heLLo, One of my family member were disgnosed with Hep. C in 2007 and has went through chemotherapy for it. I dont know too much about it and I dont want to make her feel uncomfortable. Can you catch Hep. C from sharing the same cup of juice or sharing the same tub without thoroughly cleaning it before use ??... I hope my question does not offend anyone. Just Curious

    Hepatitis C is spread by exposure to blood from an infected person, it isn't transmitted by causal contact, through foods or by coughing or sneezing.
