Asian Flush

denys doesnt talk to me in forever, and once he does, this is the first thing he sends me.

Getting red in the face after alcohol may lead to medical problems

Now doctors have found if people with Asian flush continue to drink, they are at risk for serious medical problems such as esophageal cancer live cancer and others.

yes this has totally stopped me from drinking. EVER.
and gives me another excuse not to drink.

"yeah i cant drink, it gives me serious medical problems" XD

and he then said "anyway.. don't overdrink!" and then said, "but you know these studies.. don't worry about it too much -=P just fyi"

OK? hahaha show it to me but tell me not to worry? x____X

asians get red because most tend to not have the enzyme to breakdown the alcohol. and i agree with denys.. you know how these studies are. i mean asians have been drinking for 5,000 years. gimme a break.

certain areas/cultures drink a lot.. A LOT. koreans drink heavily... my korean friends are so hardcore, it scares me. lol.

i think she is just saying don't take it too seriously...not to encourage drinking or anything...if u don't want to drink don't drink...no need to use a study as an excuse =)

It's all about moderation.

"so many people with Asian flush have learned to avoid alcohol. "

No one in my family can drink a lot of alcohol. If I drink a can of lite beer I'll probably die from heart failure so I don't drink, period.

BTW did you hear about the girl who died after kissing her bf who had just eaten a peanut treat? Apparently she was allergic to peanuts.

yesss.. thank you.

i also don't take anything posted online that's "supposedly" official with grammatical errors seriously either. LOL.

BESIDES... another thing that makes me think this is full of crap is that ANYONE who drinks excessively, is BOUND to have health problems.

it's like duuuuh.. lol.

oh haha i thought that they meant it's worse when ppl with asian flush to drink more as opposed to someone who doesnt get it?

but the weird thing is that last time i drank, the side of my waist was hurting o__O or maybe it's just tom hahahahahha

Actually that is what it is trying to say. Being red in the face is not cute or funny, it's a sign that your body cannot metabolize the alcohol and you're essentially poisoning yourself slowly.

You know how you hear stories of people who binge and wake up dead in the morning from alcohol poisoning? Let's just say that if it takes those fuckheads 15 shots to die, it'll take someone with asian flush 10.

It's all just about drinking responsibily and knowing your limit. I really wouldn't worry about it, this isn't anything new. Just common sense.
