Hepatitis B: unlike “A” it is not spread through contaminated food or water. It is actually spread through infected blood, sexual contact, or needles and symptoms take on average about two and a half months to show up the virus can survive outside the body for at least seven days and still cause infection to a new person if left untreated Hepatitis B can cause liver cancer and serious damage Good news though! there is a Hepatitis B vaccine. Also,90% of the people infected usually recover within six months
