Core Tip Unhealthy behaviors, including smoking, sedentary lifestyle, or alcohol drinking, are known to have adverse effect on the outcome among chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients. However, there are limited data on the effect of healthier lifestyle modification (LSM), including quitting smoking, regular exercise, and quitting drinking, on the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in CHB patients. In this first hypothetical randomized trial, we demonstrated that the LSM lowers the risk of developing HCC by using the nationwide database. The findings of this study highlight the necessity for active counseling and therapeutic intervention for LSM in CHB patients.
