Eat More Vegetables And Fruits—Doctor Advises Hepatitis B Patients




A Physician at the Seventh Day Adventist Church Hospital in Sunyani, Dr. Ebenezer Ofori Agyemang has advised hepatitis B patients to be careful with their diet.

Dr. Ebenezer Ofori Sarpong speaking in an exclusive interview with News Hunter Magazine's Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku said hepatitis B patients can prolong their lifespan if they eat more vegetables and fruits.

The Physician also advised against alcoholism and smoking habit, adding that it will be deadly if they engage in such practices.

“Drinking alcohol can cause alcoholic hepatitis, so people with this disease should desist from smoking and alcoholism. I will also advise against eating fatty foods. I suggest they should eat more vegetables and fruits,” he enunciated.

According to him, there is more hope for people suffering from hepatitis B if they take their drugs seriously—and eat healthy meals.  

“Hepatitis B is a potentially life-threatening liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus. It is a major global health problem. It can cause chronic infection and puts people at high risk of death from cirrhosis and liver cancer.

“A vaccine against hepatitis B has been available since 1982. The vaccine is 95% effective in preventing infection and the development of chronic disease and liver cancer due to hepatitis B,” according to the World Health Organization.
