Apr 24, 2011

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am unclear how his food would have been contaminated by blood.

Your brother could always get tested also if he is extremely worried. A simple blood test for HBsAg would be reassuring to him if he is very concerned.

Bloody cigarette?!? Pls help relieve stress!!!
