Binge-drinking trends in teenagers

Whether you’re a parent, coach or adolescent, these figures on teenage binge-drinking might interest you.  The reported levels are still very high but I suppose the upside is that it’s not getting a whole lot worse.  It’s amazing that young people (and the parents that give them alcohol) don’t realise that the more they binge-drink before their brains are fully developed, the more brain damage they are incurring.  It’s like starting a 100 metre race with a two second penalty.  Even Usain Bolt will struggle to win races if he gives Yohan Blake that sort of headstart.
