If your face gets flushed when you drink alcohol, you could be in danger of developing esophageal cancer. Researchers said facial flushing after drinking is predominately caused by an inherited deficiency in an enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase 2, or ALDH2. There is growing evidence that ALDH2-deficient people are at a much higher risk of esophageal cancer, specifically squamous cell carcinoma, from alcohol consumption than those individuals with fully active ALDH-2. Doctors from the...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
