Is it true when you use alcohol the automatic functions of the body controlled by the brain like the heart in the breathing also become impaired?

No, it doesn't have a direct effect on the autonomic system. It's effect is directly on the organs it goes to. It travels to organs by way of the circulatory system.Alcohol that is not processed by the liver goes to the heart. In the heart, alcohol reduces the force of heart contractions. Consequently, the heart will pump less blood, lowering overall body blood pressure.Alcohol is known to make blood less likely to clot, reducing risk of heart attack and stroke and alcohol dilates blood vessels.

Why did you get a DUI if you blew below the limit?

A DUI can still be proven if the officer can show that your driving was impaired. Different people become impaired at different alcohol levels so being below the limit does not 'prove' you were not impaired. The officer may also believe that you were impaired by something other than alcohol. On the bright side, a good defense attorney will be thrilled that you did take the breath test and blew under the limit.

Can alcohol cause Asthma?

Asthma occurs often because of certain "triggers". Each person's triggers differ but can include just about anything, such as dust, smells, fumes, good-smelling aromas like cooking smells or perfumes, etc. Asthma occurs because of inflammation and irritation in the lungs, thus causing less lung expansion and impaired oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange. Asthma can also cause reduced respiratory effort-- the muscular part of breathing-- so that breathing is more shallow. Since alcohol acts as a respiratory depressant in the way it acts on the brain, just like prescription or street drugs can cause, ingestion of alcohol can trigger an asthma attack due to reducing the respiratory effort and depressing the brain's respiratory center.
