Written by Joe Nguyen | 06 February 2011
(I found this article in the Asian Avenue magazine and thought it was interesting especially since I myself turn bright pink when I drink)
The phenomenon known as the Asian flush, or Asian glow, is a consequence from consuming alcoholic beverages that affects many of Asian descent. Bright pink to red faces make it an easy-to-spot condition, which, for some, may lead to higher levels of embarrassment.
Cause and symptoms
The flush is caused by a weakness in the enzyme ALDH2, which helps people metabolize alcohol. The redness comes when the body begins to accumulate acetaldehyde, a by-product of the alcohol.
