Hepatitis B and Liver Cancer

One very important immunizations are Hepatitis B immunization. As the name suggests, this is clear immunization to prevent hepatitis B. Actually there are 7 types of hepatitis virus, namely the hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. Viral hepatitis B and C are the most dangerous type of virus, because it can develop into liver cancer.

Hepatitis B is a contagious infection that attacks the liver, caused by the virus HBV. The virus is only transmitted through blood contact with an infected person, or other body fluids. For example, blood transfusions, sharing needles (especially for injecting drug users), sexual contacts, use the same eating utensils with an infected person, the process of birth and pregnancy from an infected mother, and so on.

Many do not know that viral hepatitis is more dangerous than the HIV virus. Because hepatitis B virus can infect 50 to 100 times greater than HIV.
