Please recommend if it's better for people who get alcohol flush reaction not to drink alcohol?

Please recommend if it's better for people who get alcohol flush reaction not to drink alcohol?

Yes: the flush reaction is caused by an accumulation of acetaldehyde, which is a toxic product of alcohol metabolism. This substance is normally only present for fractions of a second, but people who develop the flush reaction have an abnormal enzyme which doesn't metabolize the acetaldehyde properly. This is a chemical which causes damage to capillaries and skin, among other things. ...Read more
