Starvation Induces HBV Gene Expression in Vivo.
Quote: "Importantly, upon refeeding for 12 h, the luciferase activity in the 7-h fasting mice returned to the baseline level (Fig. 4 A Bottom and B), suggesting that the positive effect on HBV expression was fasting-dependent. Overall, these results strongly indicate that HBV is robustly induced during starvation and that this induction is reversible by refeeding."
The study is here: http://www.pnas.org/content/103/43/16003.full

And it corelates with the perfecthealth.com site: "The example we gave is hepatitis; hepatitis B and C viruses can exploit the process of gluconeogenesis to promote their own replication, so high-carb diets which avoid gluconeogenesis tend to slow down disease progression."

Basically it means the Hep B pacient should not starve/fast, because lack of food promotes HBV replication. Someone else knows more about this, could it be true?
