线上普通话健康论坛: 酒精造成之面部潮红及其健康影响 (Alcohol-Induced Facial Flushing and Health Implications)

很多亚洲人在饮酒后会出现面部潮红及心律加速的情况。世界上约有5.4亿人饮酒后都会如此,相当于全球 8% 的人口都饱受这些症状之苦。这种现象是由于先天的基因突变,而导致人体内缺乏一种名为乙醛去氢酶 (ALDH2) 的重要解酒酵素。很多人将喝酒后脸红当作「健康」的象征,但其实这是误解:喝酒会脸红,代表一种名为乙醛的危险致癌物正在体内累积。陈哲宏博士将在讲座中解释酒后脸红的生物学原因,以及带有酒后脸红基因的人可能面对的健康问题。陈博士将介绍新的饮酒量标准,以及他正在亚裔族群中大力推广的 5 月 9 日「无酒日」。 陈哲宏博士 (Dr. Che-Hong Chen) 任教于斯坦福大学医学院,是一位分子生物学及基因学家。陈博士专门研究乙醛毒性以及 ALDH 多基因家族在人体中所发挥的功能。有一类新型乙醛去氢酶调节剂的发现,就是奠基于陈博士的研究。这些小分子调节剂 (叫作Aldas) 为强效的酶活化剂,能活化东亚人种特有功能失调的变异 ALDH2,即造成酒精潮红症 (酒精不耐症) 的元凶。陈哲宏博士在台湾创办了名为台湾酒精不耐症卫教协会 (Taiwan Alcohol Intolerance Education Society,简称TAIES) 的非营利教育推广组织。他是斯坦福亚裔健康研究及教育中心 (Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education ,简称CARE) 的国际推广部主任 (outreach country director),主导推广关于酒精不耐症的大众健康教育、宣导过量饮酒可能造成的健康风险,以及预防台湾及东亚地区的饮酒相关癌症发生。 注册链接(registration link) https://stanford.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Z_6VoP1PSyCNO4l_VaVMjg#/registration
