Hepatitis E in pigs - BBC reports


Finally, after years of struggle, Hepatitis E in pigs in Britain and passing to people has hit the broadcast news.

The BBC World Service has carried a report quoting Dr Harry Dalton in Cornwall.

He tells us that 20 percent of British pigs have Hepatitis E at any one time, and a victim of Hepatitis E is interviewed.

There are apparently very reasonable doubts about the safety of pork and sausages.
