Hepatitis killed 1.34 million people in 2015, numbers likely to increase: WHO report 22.4.2017 DNA: Top News
An estimated 325 million people are living with hepatitis B or C and few are aware of their condition, with death tolls from the viruses rising, the UN said today. The World Health Organization's latest hepatitis report identifies the condition as a grave public health threat that needs an "urgent response." Hepatitis killed 1.34 million people in 2015, a toll roughly in-line with HIV and tuberculosis. But in contrast to HIV and TB, hepatitis deaths are increasing, WHO said, recording a 22 per cent mortality rise from 2000 to 2014. Hepatitis is often symptom free, but types B and C can trigger liver cirrhosis and cancer if untreated. Lack of awareness among those infected is driving the virus's spread.

Alcohol abuse top cause of liver failure 20.4.2017 TOI: India
Alcohol use has gone up from 16.1% to 25.6% among urban dwellers in Delhi in the past 20 years, while alcohol use in rural areas in the corresponding period is nearly four times — from 8% to 33.2%, according to recent survey published in Global Heart, a reputed medical journal. This is not very different from what has been observed by AIIMS, India’s premier medical institute. AIIMS has reported a rise in the number of patients with alcohol-related liver failure.
