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.

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.
