Expert demands action on underage binge drinking - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Expert demands action on underage binge drinking - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | Louis Year 9 journal1 | Scoop.it
Everyday in Western Australia one person under the age of 18 gets so blind drunk an ambulance is called.

Via mdenisonpender, Alice Fox
Louis Parsons-O'Malley's insight:

This made me think about the mentality of underage binge drinkers. They have a sense of invincibilty and they think drinking won't have any major effects, this may be true in some cases but only in the short-term. In 20 years they will be seeing the worst of the effects when their body can't deal with diseases( mental and physical) because they have damaged their body.

this article is a news paper article about youth drinking age getting lower and lower and how something should be done about it.This is relivant to our topic because we have talked about binge drinking. this article is a good article and i agree that something needs to be done to stop young people being in hospital due alcohol related problems. 

Alice Fox's curator insight, May 16, 2013 2:00 AM
This article focuses on the drinking culture in Western Australia. The age this start is as young as 12. They suggest this is because alcohol is much more accessible than ever before. It then goes on to talk about what damages can be done to the body. Finishing with an interview from Professor Daude.

According to Drink Aware, the vast majority of teenagers don't wait until they're 18 before embarking on the drinking scene and by the time they reach 15, 8 out 10 teenagers have tried alcohol. ...
Louis Parsons-O'Malley's insight:

This articles is directed at teenage girls particularly. it covers consequences such as unwanted pregnancies, STI's, growth stunting, mental disorders and organ damage. I found the growth stunting the most interesting because It never came to my mind that alchohol could the important hormanal balance whilst one is going through puberty which therefore stunts the growth and development of bones and vital organs.

This article brings to attention the health affects of underage drinking and also the alarming percentages of teenage girls who have tried alcohol. I was alarmed of the number of people who have begun drinking before the legal requirement. Not only that but the percentage of underage female drinkers. I was previously unaware of the health risk that follow from underage drinking but this article clearly sates the health risks.

UOW academic takes on youth alcohol abuse

UOW academic takes on youth alcohol abuse | Louis Year 9 journal1 | Scoop.it
Professor Sandra Jones knows a thing or two about young people and alcohol abuse.

Via Giuseppe Fattori
Louis Parsons-O'Malley's insight:

I think professor Sandra Jones( the interviewee) has the right Idea and direction towards reducing underage binge drinking in teens. We need to restrict availablity, increase price and ban advertising. Her opinion is that these things would be very effective but the government is reluctant to do them. The truth is it is very easy for someone underage to acquire alcohol, it should be treated like any other drug.

Georgia Robson's curator insight, May 20, 2014 10:33 PM

I really enjoyed reading this article because it is put together so wisely, so it's very persuasive. Professor Sandra asks a lot of questions to due with underage drinking, such as: What environment is it for teenagers to feel the need to drink alcohol? She believes that simply saying its not good for you isn't a proper campaign against young people and alcohol abuse.

Louis Parsons-O'Malley's insight:

This article covers many posssible and inevitable immediate consequences of alcohol consumption, the ways in which it effects your brain and the cause this can have, and mental, physical and social effects aswell. I think there is a time for alchohol but not regularly and not in large intake so as to avoid feelings of regret to decisions you may have made whilst intoxicated.

Binge alcohol drinking trend for women

Binge alcohol drinking trend for women | Louis Year 9 journal1 | Scoop.it
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nearly 14 million women and girls binge drink about three times a month. The report says most female binge drinkers are 18 to 34 years old.
Louis Parsons-O'Malley's insight:

I don't think this article is very persuasive or effective, its very factual, not so much relatable or personal. It is very one sided. to be blunt I think the only thing the writer is trying to do is persuade parents to lock their daughters up.
