Yeet Hay? What's the white people equivalent?

Parents always say whenever i have canker sores, get zits, gassey or have nose bleeds, I automatically have yeet hay (cantonese for hot air) Then I'm forced to drink sometimes horrible tasting soups. What would be a white people equivalent of yeet have?

next time, tell your parents you'd rather drink some beer, the whiteman's "leung chai"

I don't believe there is a western equivalent to "yet hay"... thought about that in the past, and ask a few ppl... no answer.

yea....beer are often refer to as foreign chinese herbal tea...

don't really know the biology behind it...but i don't think non asians have the same physiology as chinese...i mean...you will see many foreigners eat fries everyday and nothing happen...whereas us chinese gets sore throat if you eat fries everyday...i once read a research that chocolate and chips consumption won't make you break out...but during my teenage years...if i eat too much chocolate at one setting...i break out the next day.............. i think it has the do with our genes

I'm with duckdown: this has NOTHING to do with Food & Drink. This is better suited for OT, and why say white people equivalent? Can you not write Caucasian equivalent?

I'm also offended.

I dunno what "yeet hay" means, even though my mom tells me. I think its supposed to mean something like unhealthy, but then again she says its eating oily poor foods, like something with msg. She complains that yeet hay food come from meals eating bagged snacks and takeout restaurant. Though I don't believe in this methodology.

I'm guessing you didn't bother even suggesting what yeet hay was and immediately labled me a racist after reading the white people part, great...For one, it is relevant to the food and drink forum as chinese people often label someone as yeet hay often when they have consumed too much fatty foods.

And also, how are calling caucasians "white people" offending?

White people equivalent? I guess OP should have asked what is it called in English.

I guess this have a small blurb on "yeet hay"
http://www.batgung.com/chinese-medicine ... -hong-kong

Chinese people think our body works as a balance "Ying and Yang" and that's why they say food contain "cold air" or "hot air".

A lot of ancient chinese herbal medicine works with the "ying yang", "hot cold" air, etc. Why isnt Chinese herbal medicine as effective nowadays as compared to what it says in old chinese books? Part of the answer is because chinese doctors only teach 80% of their knowledge to students. Over generations, knowledge gets lost. Besides, some herbs are probably extinct by now.

I think this topic does fit in Food and Drinks because Yeet Hay deals with food (probably nutrition of food specifically).

As for "white people", I would get offended if people refer me as "that yellow person over there". Since you obviously know "white people" means Caucasians, how hard is it to use "Caucasian"? I strongly urge you to change your words not only for this, but for future usage.

totally going OT, but police crime reports would refer to suspects as white or black, but asian instead of yellow or brown. Similarly, some asians dislike being called oriental, and englishmen/frenchmen don't hate their label compared to if the "country+man" construct was applied to a chinese person. A term may or may not be racist depending on who it is used on.

going back on topic, "yeet hay" is an eastern medicine term so there is no way to explain in pure english. The discomfort in the gums after having too much fried food etc, I don't think it's exactly a canker sore (aphthous minor?).

Usually I find that when my mouth is getting canker sores, it's usually a lack of vitamin C in my diet. Say one eats a lot of fries and chocolate bars, I think it takes away a lot of vitamin C from one's body or something. But there is a recommended daily dosage of vitamin C one should be getting in his/her body. Many fruits have high vitamin C content. There's the saying "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away." As well Vitamin C also helps speed up recovery from a flu... Hope you guys find this informative.

Calm down...OP wasn't intended to offend anyone...he should of wrote non-Chinese which would make more sense and could avoid all the misunderstandings. An it totally fits in food and drink because the chinese herbal tea remedies is famous for relieving side effects of excessive junk food, unbalanced diet, etc.

honestly, I don't see the problem of using "White".....caucasians who lived in Canada for generations are often referred as White Canadian as their identity...nothing wrong with that...and such individuals have no ethnic background and Canadian is just a nationality rather than a race..for example...i am canadian and my coworker is also a candian...but are we the same? no, because i am chinese canadian and people would often refer her as white canadian
