No safe level of alcohol for teens

No safe level of alcohol for teens | Stay in Control Perin | Scoop.it

This article shows that teenagers who even drink small amounts of alchoal have a significantly higher risk or developing alcohol abuse or risky sexual behaviour. It show that there is no safe drrinking level for people under the age of 18.

Perin Leach's insight:
This article was extremelly insightfull as is explains that teenagers who even drink small amounts of alcohol have the same risks (mentally/sexually/physically) at those who drink alot if you are under the age of 18. People under the age of 18 who are drinking are most likely to develope certain types of brain malfunctions/disorders caused by the alcohol/drugs being consumed. I think this article is extremelly relevent even though we haven't discussed this in class because it just good to know in gerneral.

Alcohol or 'booze' is widely used by teenagers. Binge drinking, drink driving and unsafe sex can all result from the misuse of alcohol. Alcohol is responsible for most drug-related deaths in the teenage population.

Via Olivia Porcheddu
Perin Leach's insight:

Like Olivia said, this is seriously one of the best articles i have seen out of all the ones i have read easily. I found it extremelly insightful as it gives a bucket full of information including statistics, and alot of information on how injury/death, unwanted sex, and future heath/social problems relating to underage alcohol consumtion. It is a wonderful article for both parents/friends and the teenager themselves for information on what they are putting themselves at risk of, and i think it should be publisized more as it could be extremelly helpful and could even save a life!

Underage Drinking. Alcohol Health Facts from DrinkWise Australia

Underage drinking and teenage drinking in Australia. Alcohol carries a number of risks and consequences for teenagers. Get the facts about alcohol and health.

Via Ashleigh Doherty, mdenisonpender
Perin Leach's insight:

I found this article extremelly interesting and eye opening. Professor Ian Hickie talks about the develping drain in teenagers and how the "frontal lobes" in the human brain are not fully developed until the early twenties. While this particular section of the brain is developing, disruption to it caused by alcholol or drugs can cause nerve cells to become dysfunctional and can effect many things we do in daily life which are extremelly important, things like memory, planning, emotional stability and learning or thinking in general. Like i said above, i think this article is extremelly eye opening and interesting as it gives statistics and is generally a very easy article to follow and understand.

Shocked mum fights underage drinking

Shelley McGrath knows better than most about the dangers of underage drinking.

Via Sophia Whitton
Perin Leach's insight:
I think it’s a really great thing that Shelly McGrath and her daughter have gone such a scary and eye opening ordeal and are speaking out to other people to explain and warn of the horror that other people could go through or are possibly going through now. In the article, it explains how Shelly McGrath was under the impression she was leaving her daughter in the care of her friends parents and would be safe, whereas she was planning to sneak off to an unsupervised party with her friend. I think the article is moving in some aspects, for example when the doctor comments on her daughters condition and how “she was supposed to wake up by now” really makes you realize how this sort of stuff ruins people and their families.

i found this article interesting because it was coming from a person who has been a witness of what can be caused by drinking underage and binge drinking. getting a perspective from the mother made me have a better understanding of what she was feeling when the doctors told her she was unconcious

Samuel Shalala's curator insight, March 10, 2015 7:00 PM

i agree with this article, as the mum is trying to tell people to stop underage drinking.

Teen drinkers at greater health risk...

Via Dominic Mortimer
Perin Leach's insight:
I thought this was a great article to read, as it gives statistics that show that teenagers are drinking alcohol at increasingly younger ages cause mainly by influence from parents/guardians/TV/friends/siblings or just gernerally wanting o experiment with independance. This article explains the increasing chances of mental health issues in younger people cause by alcohol and drugs.

Tips for Parents, Signs Your Teenager is Drinking Alcohol

What parents should know about underage drinking and the risks of alcohol. Recognise the signs of teenage drinking and set rules for teenagers, by DrinkWise Australia

Via Jacob Hall
Perin Leach's insight:

I found this article highly insightful as it provides great advice for parents and friends/family to look for signs whether their child/friend has or is at this time consuming alcohol under the legal age limit. It provides hints on how best to approach their child about the situation and how you can slowly ease out of the addiction, or just to explain generally how the parent feels about the child being under the influence of alcohol under the legal age limit. As i said above, i found this artical highly insightful and I think it should be used and made more available to parents and family and friends of the teenager as it is very informative.

Teenage girls worse drinkers than boy


Via lucie johnston
Perin Leach's insight:

This article shows statistics and and surveys that have been done showing that girls are binge drinking much more than boys. Each year, more than half of the girls found to be intoxiated were under the age of 25. Some statistics that are shown after a survey has been taken are things like the percentage of females ages between 16-17 binge drinking on a night out with friends has increased from 9 percent to 28 percent between 1995 and 2011. This article is an extremelly eye opening and informative one for the reasons i mentioned above, and that it is showing people that binge drinking in teenage girls is dangerously on the rise.
