Hepatitis (Hep) is a virus that affects the liver. There are different types called A, B, C, D, E, F and G. Hep A, B and C are the most common. Hep A is caused by bad food/sanitation (sewage disposal). Hep B and C are passed by blood and body fluids so they can be passed by sex and sharing sharp objects like needles/razors/nail cutters.
