@Phantom The issue of "race" as a social construct is actually a lot more complicated than people care to admit. If anything, geneticists are noticing that there ARE biochemical/physical similarities among groups of people that is sociologically convenient to term by "race", but of course that's extremely complicated. That notion of race as a "social construct" is actually a product of the 1970s/80s ethnic studies that didn't really engage with what was going on with the medical/biological sciences that saw that there were higher instances of various diseases within ethnic groups (like sickle cell anemia among people of African and Arab descent) and that different ethnic groups have specific mutations that help them respond better to drugs. Unfortunately, there is no real term to really describe this phenomenon that's not socially loaded.

The point of the article is that for the longest time "personalized medicine" has been focused on improving only the outcomes of white/European people in the US; it's only been very recently that we're finally seeing drug research that actually benefits and targets people of color.

@IsaacKojima Well, given that the article doesn't address prevalence of the mutation in these populations, honestly, we have no clue. it's hard to make a recommendation of whether to use naltrexone because we don't know if it's a prominent mutation worth noting.

well, that wouldn't really work until he's past 80. you know Asians look like they're 30 until they're 80. and then they look like they're 150.

I totally realized I forgot to respond to this thread.

I love that there are so many of us with different viewpoints on things, and I don't and wouldn't want everyone to have the same ideas and opinions as I have (which is more than what I can say for many of my fellow peeps who live in the SF Bay Area or people in the Asian American blogosphere :P). I like that we can post different opinions on things and that we respect each other enough to read and debate those viewpoints, and agree to disagree.

I think what really brought this on for me was going to college at UCR. I was the sole liberal, agnostic/atheist, ethnic studies majoring, queer Filipino boy among people who were decidedly more conservative than me--but I've maintained those friendships with them for 20 years because we genuinely like and respect each other versus those who have the same political background as me, but we just didn't click.

I like that our fearless leaders are trying their best to bring people who do have differing opinions and bring different perspectives on issues, and it's sad that so many people, especially Asian Americans, think that we Asian Americans all have to think the same way about everything.

I actually have relatives in Delano too, but they're very distant so I've only met them once maybe 20-25 years ago. It's just sad that we're only truly appreciating the sacrifices they've made thus far.
