NPR's Renee Montagne and Dr. Beth Bell discuss the causes and cases of hepatitis in the United States. Bell says the recent outbreak of hepatitis A associated with a food item is quite unusual, because the virus is usually transmitted by person-to-person contact. Bell studies viral hepatitis at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Ga.
