Study: Higher Hepatitis C Infection During Acupuncture in Asian Americans; polyDNA Recommends That Doctors Prescribe Gene-Eden-VIR against HCV
Date:12/4/2013

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

Acupuncture is one of the greatest risk factor among Asians for acquiring a Hepatitis C (HCV) infection. Results of a study “con?rmed ?ndings from prior cross-sectional studies of patients with chronic hepatitis C and similarly suggested that certain non-traditional risk factors such as acupuncture or exposure to contaminated needles are probable causes of HCV infection. In addition, acupuncture or exposure to dirty needles is a strong independent predictor of positive anti-HCV test results in Asians (1).”

Part of the reason acupuncture is a higher risk factor among Asian Americans than among other population groups is due to the role acupuncture plays in traditional Asian communities. Researchers found that “the difference in risk factors between Asian and non-Asian HCV patients could be due to … exposure to contaminated needles, since these tend to occur in more routine and casual settings in Asian communities (1).”

This is alarming since researchers showed in a study that Asians have a much higher risk of liver cancer than other ethnicities if they are infected with HCV. As study authors wrote, “Asian patients with chronic hepatitis C and cirrhosis have four times the risk of liver cancer compared to Caucasians, and twice the risk compared to non-Hispanic African Americans (1).”

In addition, the prevalence of HCV in Asian Americans is much higher than the national average. In fact, studies have shown that up to 6% of Asian Americans have HCV (1). “Preliminary studies from New York, Texas, Virginia, and California…have suggested a prevalence range from 2.2 - 6% in Asian Americans. This prevalence range is much higher than the national prevalence of 1.3% found in the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey… (1).”

“We recommend that Asian Americans take Gene-Eden-VIR, a natural remedy designed to help the immune system target the latent HCV.” – Mik
