Hepatitis B virus is 100 times more contagious than human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes AIDS.
The effects range from flu-like illness, nausea, and vomiting to cirrhosis and liver cancer. Statistics from the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that 14 Americans die every day from hepatitis B and more than one-third of the 300,000 people infected are college-aged young adults.
