San Jose DUI Lawyer Building a Strong Defense
After you consume alcohol, your body goes through the alcohol absorption
and elimination process. The alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream
through the stomach and mainly the small intestine. After this, it is
then eliminated (or metabolized) mostly within the liver. A certain percentage
of the alcohol exits the body through breath and urine, which is why officers
estimate the percentage of alcohol in a person's system through breath
and urine tests.
