Is It Safe To Eat Food Made By A Hepatitis C Infected Person
Is it unsafe for an inactive hepatitis b carrier to eat alcoholic food that has been cooked or flamed?
Not unsafe: Good for you for being concerned about alcohol. Limiting alcohol consumption is important to protect your liver, especially if you have a viral hepatitis infection. Heating food that has alcohol in it will evaporate the alcohol, leaving just the taste behind (like a red wine reduction sauce) so these are safe to eat. Some people avoid all alcohol because of triggers and should be respected. ...Read more
Extremely rare: It is extremely rare for this to happen. You cannot get HIV from eating food contaminated by small amounts of HIV infected blood. HIV does not live long outside the body. Exposure of the food to cooking heat, air or the acid in the stomach will kill the virus. There have been rare cases reported of children contracting HIV from their caregivers who are HIV infected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can an uninfected person transmit hepatitis a , b, c. That is someone with no hepatitis and transfers it to someone?
A foodborne illness is a disease that is transmitted to people by food and water, right? So what if I drink shots of tequila with meals?
You get drunk: While alcohol is a disinfectant and does kill germs and while there is some evidence that drinking alcohol with raw oysters lessens one's risk of getting disease, i wouldn't count on it as a method to avoid food-poisoning. You'd have to drink so much to kill bacteria that you'd be drunk and lot's of food poisoning involves a toxin from bacteria which isn't killed by heat or alcohol! ...Read more
Officially no: Many things are "possible" in life. So, the real question is, "How likely is it to happen?" The chances of catching HepC by kissing is perhaps 0%, mathematically rounded off. HepC virus is in the blood. If a HepC person has some cracks or scrapes on the lips or inside the mouth, any canker sores, or any bleeding gums, then HepC can be in the mouth... probably more so if kissing is very vigorous. ...Read more
Is it possible that a person get infected with hepatitis C when a person scratches the infected persons?
Probably not: Hepatitis c is only transmitted when small amounts of blood from one person get inside someone else. Presumably, if you accidentally scratched someone, even if they bled, it would have only gotten on your skin and not inside. If someone with hcv has a sore that bleeds, they need to cover it and make sure they avoid contact with others. ...Read more

Is it safe to eat non organic yogurt if it states it is made from cows NOT treated by RBST hormones? Or better to go organic?
Cows on hormones: My assessment is that there is no evidence that cows with or without hormones make a healthier milk and yogurt. What kind of evidence would l like to see? A proper trial of say 20,000 folks randomly allocated to hormone or non-hormone yogurt and followed for say 10 m then 20 then 30 years to see which group is the healthiest. Probably will never be.done. ...Read more
While : While blood born diseases such as hepatitis c can be contracted by using needles, these diseases can only be contracted by sharing needles with an infected person. If an uninfected person uses a needle repeatedly, but does not share it, they cannot contract diseases such as hepatitis c. Using the same needle repeatedly, though, can cause other problems such as infections from common skin bacteria due to the reused needle no longer being sterile.. ...Read more
Can hepatitis B and C be transferred from getting splashed with infected persons urine or saliva? what precautions should a caregiver take?
Hep B/ C in a flash: Hep B and C are classified as blood-borne pathogens and are generally contracted with direct exposure to blood or body secretions, as in sexual contact. Since HBV has been found in saliva, the risk of transmission of Hep B with deep kissing probably exists and the risk increases if one partner wears orthodontic braces or has open cuts or sores in the mouth. No report of Hep B or C via saliva exist ...Read more
Is eating a bat eaten fruit a source of rabies? Is it true that the virus may survive only when transferred to a living animal?
Rabies: The mechanism of transmission you asked about is very unlikely. The most common method is by the transfer of infected saliva by the bite of a rabid animal. A second means for the transfer of rabies is through the ingestion of infected meat from an infected animal. The virus needs an animal host for survival. ...Read more
