Some Ohio residents follow diets that are low in carbohydrates. When very few carbohydrates are consumed, the body depletes its glycogen reserves and begins to burn stores of fat for energy. This metabolic state is known as ketosis, and some academics believe that it can fool police breath-testing equipment. This is because the body produces acetone when the liver breaks down stored fat, and some of this organic byproduct is released in the breath as isopropyl alcohol.
Some federal prisoners in Ohio might have their sentences reduced by the First Step Act, which became law in 2018. However, the reach of this legislation is limited. Incarcerated people who are not federal prisoners are not eligible, and it only applies to nonviolent offenders.
