Interesting... that once recovered from Hep A you become immune to it.
Thanks for sharing.

One thing to remember is that even if you have developed an immunity to Hep A you can still be a source for contact transmission by not following sanitary procedures. I say this only after I could stop laughing. Sorry but I find it irony of the most hilarious sort that a Corporation that is Certified Organic and Certified Natural is responsible for spreading Hep A with berries.
