kissing with tongue gives HEP B

Hello,
I would like to know if one can catch Hep B by practising French kiss with a person who is a chronic carrier of Hep B even if this person has low DNA and normal ALT.

sawaay - This question gets asked all the time here. I really don't know much about hep B, but apparently it is possible to transmit hep B during kissing. It's not likely, but possible. But if the non-infected person is vaccinated, then the risk is eliminated. So the problem is solvable, just make sure you (or your partner) get vaccinated and the vaccination "takes" prior to any smoochie smoochie action. Below is a link and quote from a site I found:

"What about kissing? While regular kissing and French kissing have not caused any known transmission of hepatitis B, because this virus is found in saliva, there is a potential for infection with French kissing. Make sure your partner is vaccinated."
