Hepatitis E scandal breaks - increase points to foodborne source


We have been writing about the dangers of Hepatitis E  for years on this blog, and also recording much on the newsgroup uk.business.agriculture, about the association with pig farming.

Google Groups search will help you with the newsgroup.

This blog has a search function leading to a number of articles over recent years.

Anyway, the evidence elsewhere (Cornwall) suggests that the association of pig farmers with their pigs is also a risk. There have also been outbreaks on British cruise ships sailing ex British ports.

That's another serious British  veterinary scandal being blown, but so slowly: far too slowly.
