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, 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.
