We believe that the people in their fifties who drank a lot of alcohol are getting caught in liver cancer as a result of viewing TV dramas where the middle aged people who drink lots of alcohol are dying from liver cancer. But this is the wrong perception. With respect to the worldwide distribution of hepatitis, Asia, including Korea, comprising about two-thirds of the world's total hepatocarcinoma, mostly coincides with the area of the prevalence of the hepatitis B virus.
