In this article it gives statics and talks about teenage alcohol use. Although this article is not recent it shows how much money was spent and how much each age group drank. This articles makes you realise if that many teenagers were drinking back then, what are the rates for 2013?

This shows that the age of underage drinking is getting lower and lower by the year kids trying to be to inpress there friends or by peer pressure when there are 12.

Although this article is a couple of years old, it clearly shows the alarming rates of young adults who are drinking and the effects that this has on a young person. This refers to what we were talking about in class about safe drinking and underage drinking.

In this article it shows that if your underage drinking there is no safe level until the age of 18. Teenagers who drink are most likely to develop developing alcohol abuse or risky sexual behaviour than those who wait. A lot of research has been taken shows that waiting until your 18 to drink is the best option for everyone. We havent really discussed this issue so it was good to read the article and to wait until the age of 18.

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.

This article is about the overreactions that some people have to stories about teenage drinking and drugs, but it's saying if you look beyond the scare stories that it is not always as wide spread and drastic as everybody says. This relates to our topic of alcohol use by teenagers.

And also shows the overreactions of the media to teenage drinking.

This article shows what a damaging effect alcohol can have on a person and how it dulls their inhibitions. It also gives an example on what can happen when you swim after consuming alcohol. This relates to our discussion in class about swimming intoxicated and decision making.

Teen girls' brains hit harder by booze.

This article shows that because of how teenage girls are built and the faster development of the brain, that they are more vunerable to the effects of alcohol than teenage boys. This conveys a warning to teenage girls that they have to be more aware of how much they drink.

Teenagers girls' brains develop two years faster than males this article says. This means drinking for girls can have a longer lasting effect than boys.

Girls should be aware of how much they drink as too much drinking may lead to unwanted pregnancy and boys taking advantage of girls. Girls should watch what they drink and how much they drink. We have covered most of this in class.

stephanie shalala's curator insight, May 19, 2013 1:01 AM

This article tells us that teenage girls are more vunerable to the effects of alcohol than teenage boys. The reasons for this is because 

girls brains develop one to two years earlier than males So, alcohol use during a different developmental stage (despite the same age)  could account for the gender differences.

Other reasons include hormonal differences between girls and boys, and girls' slower rates of metabolism, higher body fat ratios, and lower body weight.
