Recent studies show that one out of 10 Asian Americans are chronically infected with hepatitis B and may not even know it since there are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease.

It can lead to liver failure and cancer. http://kealakai.byuh.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3998&Itemid=78
