BODY ALCOHOL EFFECTS are be different from person to person. Some people are effected by alcohol very quickly and some are not. Some people are affected by alcohol slightly and some are impaired after only one drink. The difference in alcohol effects can be attributed to variation in human physiology. In a DUI case you need an expert DUI attorney who will help you determine how your body is affected by alcohol because your Los Angeles DUI defense might depend on it. Here we discuss one enzyme that affects alcohol metabolism in a human body.
An enzyme that is commonly present in stomach and liver, Alcohol Dehydrogenase (ADH), is responsible for alcohol metabolism. ADH body alcohol effects are such that it will reduce alcohol presence in stomach, making less alcohol available for absorption. A person who has more Alcohol Dehydrogenase enzymes in his or her stomach will have lower blood alcohol level in blood then a person who has less of this enzyme. Thus, individual human physiology will affects DUI prosecutions because blood alcohol level will differ with different levels of ADH stomach enzymes. Body alcohol effect are such that men have higher ADH levels then women, making women more likely to be impaired then men when consuming the same amount of alcohol. Also, many Asian men are missing ADH enzyme in stomach and because of that are more susceptible to effects of alcohol and will reach higher alcohol level with the same level of alcohol consumption.
Alcohol, when consumed is converted in liver into acetaldehyde by ALDH enzyme and then to acetate (acetic acid), which is a non-toxic substance and can be broken down into carbon dioxide and water. Body alcohol effects in levels of ALDH enzyme can be pretty significant between different races with some races having huge levels of inactive ALDH enzyme, causing increased levels of acetaldehyde, which is a main culprit in a flushing reactions (aka hangover effect).
DUI lawyer Los Angeles can help you decide if you have a defense to the Los Angeles DUI based on your physiology. Level of ADH and ALDH enzymes and can affect intoxication and hangover irrespective of each other. A person who has very low levels of ALDH might feel terrible hangover even when drinking insufficient amounts of alcohol to get inebriated. This is eyeopening information because several persons that I know personally have severe alcohol reaction even with one drink, presumably because their bodies have decreased levels of ALDH.
