Young Choices may be bad choices
You’ve heard it all before, teens frolicking around on the weekends, party hopping, getting drunk on whatever they can find in their friends parents liquor cabinet. Well now, Marine Corps Studies show that youthful drink can jumpstart alcohol abuse. They evaluated men 18 – 24 and found that they were more likely to become risky drinkers if they started drinking as children or in their teens.
“Our findings underscore the need for programs and policies to reduce underage drinking, such as the minimum legal drinking age of 21 years,” the investigators said.
