Hepatitis (Part 2)

This week we are talking about Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. The liver is a vital organ that processes nutrients, filters the blood, and fights infections. When the liver is inflamed or damaged, its function can be affected. Heavy alcohol use, toxins, some medications, and certain medical conditions can cause hepatitis. However, hepatitis is often caused by a virus. In the United States, the most common types of viral hepatitis are hepatitis Ahepatitis B, and hepatitis C.  (CREDITS: CDC What is Viral Hepatitis? | CDC)
