***Did you know? Asian Americans tend to be infected at a much higher rate, with 1 in 10 Asians chronically infected with hepatitis B. Chronic hepatitis B is responsible for 80% of all primary liver cancer worldwide. Liver cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in Asian American men and Asian & Pacific Islanders have the highest rate of liver cancer of any race/ethnic group.
