Hepatitis B, which can harm the liver, affects about 350 million people in the world. If untreated, it can lead to liver failure and cancer. People from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Pacific Islands, the Middle East, the Amazon Basin, the former Soviet Union and rural Alaska have a higher chance of being infected. Health experts encourage people to get tested to find out whether they have hepatitis B. There are locations to get tested in Seattle, as well as King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.
