Study: Teen alcohol use affected by expected enjoyment and understanding of health messages
from Health Canal
Teens with the best understanding of health messaging may also be the most susceptible to messages that make alcohol use look appealing and fun — like television ads for beer or liquor — according to a study published in the journal Patient Education and Counseling. This is a key finding for educators to be able to better prevent alcohol use among teens, which can predict problem drinking in adulthood.
