no risk

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

there is absolutely no risk for hepatitis or HIV. You can't get any of those diseases by eating something. Blood to blood or sexual contact is the only way to contract such diseases.

Brief Answer:
no risk

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand you're anxious about infectious diseases but you keep asking essentially the same question over and over again. The simple answer is that there is no risk for transmission unless there's infected blood on the surface that you came into contact with. The same answer applies to every potential case you may have in mind.

I hope this explanation eases your anxiety a bit!
Kind Regards!
