Is it true Hepatitis B can be transferred through casual contact?<br><br>
Take a look at this site...<br><a href="http://www.chop.edu/consumer/jsp/division/generic.jsp?id=75730" target="_blank">http://www.chop.edu/consumer/jsp/div...c.jsp?id=75730</a><br><br>
Now, from the CDC...<br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hepatitis/b/faqb.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hepatitis/b/faqb.htm</a><br><br>
So who is right?? The CDC says you cannot contract Hepatitis B through casual contact and another site says you can.<br><br>
Also the CDC says 1 in 20 people are infected with Hepatitis B? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: That can't be true can it?

Yes, that could be true as most are asymptomatic. Very few actually become chronically infected.<br><br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/pink/hepb.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/pink/hepb.pdf</a>

I cannot believe they are able to get away with blatantly lying like that! Wow! Just wow! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

If you read the pinkbook chapter it clearly states that Hep B is not able to be transmitted via saliva.<br><br>
Also, they forgot to mention Gardisil is another 'proven' cancer vaccine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
