Hepatitis B warning for contact sports

Guys and girls, hope you’ve had your Hep B jabs cos a recent scientific study reports that it is possible to catch the very nasty Hep B virus from the sweat off your training partners. A Turkish study investigated the viral transmission via sweat in Olympic wrestling practitioners and found that several had high levels of the virus in their sweat. It was possible to catch the disease through this method – although the authors agree that you are more likely to catch it from contaminated blood.
A single drop of blood can contain millions of Hep B viruses. It causes severe liver problems and even death. A vaccine protects against this. This is not to be confused with the Hep C virus, which made the news recently due to the admission of Body Shop founder, Anita Roddick. Hep C is incurable and there is no vaccine.
