Transcript of Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B Hepatitis B is caused by a virus known as HBV. Hepatitis B is when the liver becomes inflammed
due to various different viruses and factors,
including alocohol abuse and trauma. There aren't always symptoms for Hepatitis and most people
recover from it with no long lasting symptoms. However, when symptoms do arise, they are usually mild fever, headache, muscle aches,
fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and
diarrhea. About 10% of people who get HBV however, get it for life. It can destroy your liver (causes cirrhosis) and cause liver cancer. It is transmitted through and contact with
another's blood or bodily fluids. Every year in the USA, 200,000 to 300,000
people get infected with HBV.
That's 200,000 to 300,000 too many. There are no cures for Hepatitis B specifically, butr doctors recommend bed rest,
avoision of dehydration, a healthy diet and avoiding alocoholic drinks.

The best way to prevent it is to prevent contact with other's blood and bodily fluids. Luckily, there is a vaccine to help prevent it. By Marcus Paragpuri and Sunny Patel Thank you for listening. We hope you have learnt something new. :)
