According to The Canadian Medical Association journal, codeine can be lethally toxic even in normal doses. This painkiller, used since the 1800s is a potential killer, for those whose genetic makeup make them " ultrarapid metabolizers"...... the liver convrts codeine to morphine, but some people are ultra metabolizers, meaning their bodies break codeine
down far faster than most, leading to a toxic accumulation of morphine that could be deadly, the Journal says. It went on to say that recent studies show that "it can be deadly even in conventional doses".
The chances of being an ultra metabolizer varies among populations. Health Canada estimates that it is 1 per 100 for those of Chinese, Japanese and Hispanic descent. It is 1 to 10 per 100 for Caucasians. North African, Ethopian and Arab populations have the highest prevalence at 16 to 28 per 100.
