Strike Through Text Option now on-line

You may now use the Strike Through option in the post text editor.

There is a square blank button located at the end of the options on the right. I could not get the 'S' to show up, but the button still works.

  • Universal Hepititis Vaccine

    Doctor who discovered hepatitis C creates universal vaccine to prevent liver disease that kills 15,000 a year in the U.S. Up to 30 per cent of hepatitis C sufferers develop liver disease
    More people died as a result of hepatitis

    Hepatitis literally means the inflammation of the liver. It is usually caused by a virus, although alcohol excess can also be to blame.

    The most common types of liver inflammation and infection are Hepatitis A, B and C...
    Hepatitis A is spread by eating contaminated food or drinking water. It's most common in countries with poor hygiene standards. There is a vaccine.

    Hepatitis B is usually passed on by exposure to infected blood. In developing countries it is mostly passed from mother to baby. In developed countries it's spread through sex and sharing drug needles.

    It is 100 times more infectious than HIV, yet there is a vaccine to prevent infection.

    Hepatitis C is also a ‘blood borne’ virus. It can be passed on through sexual contact but is most commonly shared through sharing drug needles. There is no vaccine.

    Most people recover from hepatitis A with no lasting liver damage but B and C can cause long term liver disease, leading to cirrhosis and even liver cancer. In many cases there are no early warning symptoms until liver damage is advanced.

    IMHO, the development of a universal Hepititis vaccine sounds promising; Lasergunner. Instead of having three separate injections, there's one injection that protects you from all three strains of Hepititis.

      Soon after becoming a nurse, my ex was exposed to one type of hepititus, we both ahd to take a couple injections of Gammaglobulin, I guess to prevent coming down with the disease. I do know one thing, that stuff made me feel 10 years younger for a few days!

        The Hep B vaccine is quite dangerous, even for adults. Why do they give it to newborns?
