is it true Asians can't drink alchohol and get drunk
Most Helpful Girl
Asians can drink. and get drunk. a lot of east Asians dont because they have a mutation in their genes that encode for either alcohol dehydrogenase which causes the alcohol to be converted to acetylaldehyde faster than a lot of non Asians or there's a mutation in their acetylaldehyde dehydrogenase gene that results in an enzyme that does a poor job of breaking the acetylaldehyde into acetic acid. since acetylaldehyde is toxic to the human body most Asians skip the happy drunk part and go straight to the throwing up headache shitty feeling part.1
