Is There a Genetic Basis to the Development of Alcoholism among Native Americans?
Gill, Kathryn
Winds of Change, v7 n1 p68-70 Win 1992

Alcohol metabolism may affect the regulation of alcohol intake, because interference with production or elimination of the alcohol metabolite acetaldehyde has behavioral effects. Ongoing research is examining individual and tribal differences in alcohol metabolism among American Indians. (SV)
