      so with asian flush syndrome they have underactive aldehyde dehydrogenase right? and so methanol is converted to formaldehyde and this is toxic when it builds up… therefore people with asian flush syndrome would be more susceptible than someone who metabolizes the aldehyde form fast? or is it not formaldehyde thats toxic? explanation please
