Alcohol Ads Affect Underage Drinkers

HealthDay (9/7, Preidt) reports, “The more ads for a brand of alcohol that underage drinkers see, the more likely they are to consume that product,” researchers found after asking some 1,000 13- to 20-year-old participants “who said they’d had alcohol in the past month” a number of questions on drinking and television viewing habits. The findings were published online Sept. 7 in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
