Hepatitis refers to infection of the liver. While liver infection can be caused by other viruses such as Epstein Barr virus (EBV) or cytomegalovirus (CMV), when doctors talk about viral hepatitis, they usually mean hepatitis A, B, or C. There is also hepatitis D and E!
Although many people are aware of hepatitis A risk from eating cockles or seafood, hepatitis A and E can be spread through consuming contaminated food, water, ice. Risk for hepatitis A and E infection is higher in developing countries.
ASK YOUR DOCTOR about hepatitis A or B vaccine if you want to be protected against these infections.
