Teen girls' brains hit harder by booze...

BINGE drinking can have a long-lasting negative effect on the brains of teenaged girls, hitting them harder than it does young boys, a study shows.

 

The study by researchers from the University of California, San Diego and Stanford University found that girls who binge drink - defined as having four or more drinks for women and five or more for men - showed less activity in several brain regions than teetotal teenagers, both girl and boy.
