OMG I have this!!!
For a long time now I've known that I am extremely sensitive to alcohol due to my Asian background (the funny thing is I'm only half Korean..my dad is of British Isles descent). It doesn't matter how often I drink, my tolerance is only one drink max (and it has to be with food). For about two years I just didn't drink because I hated the way it made me feel. Turns out there's not only a very good reason for this, but I also have the extreme version! Check out this article that explains this severe deficiency and how it affects people. There's also been an increased link to esophageal cancer because of this. Good thing I usually stay away from alcohol!
