The Role of Chinese Medicine in the Prevention of Viral-Related Cancers Chronic viruses such as hepatitis C, hepatitis B and human papilloma virus (HPV) are responsible for the development of millions of cancers throughout the world. The US Centers for Disease Control has added these viruses to the list of major cancer causes. Chinese traditional medicine has a strong history of treating conditions that may prevent cancer. Current research, especially in Chinese herbal medicine, confirms this practice.
