Drug report finds wa exceeding averages in ice use by teens, but it also finds there was more than twice as much drinking among students as among adults
Researchers at Indiana University found that teen drinking is twice as high as its adult peers and nearly double the legal limit at nearly one in five teen residences
A recent Indiana University study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health shows that nearly one in five teen students are using alcohol more than the legal limit in an effort to stay “above average.”
Researchers at Indiana University Bloomington collected nearly 6,000 self-reported binge drinking cases at the beginning of this year and found that more than 18 percent of teens — an estimated 20,000 — experienced binge drinking as adults.
The results showed that teenage drinking is nearly double the legal limit in an effort to stay above average.
And an additional 2 percent were using alcohol at an “abysmal” level, meaning there was more than twice as much drinking of teens than at an “average” level.
According to the report, binge drinking in the United States is up 14 percent year over year and by 2035 it will rank among the fastest growing drinking behaviors worldwide.
Researchers also uncovered that students aged 12 through 19 are drinking at approximately six times the legal limit. By contrast, they are only drinking half as often at an “average” level.
While an 구미출장안마estimated 14,000 young people are believed to be using alcohol for recreational purposes, the Purdue study indicated that binge drinking on col영주출장안마 영주출장샵lege campuses is nearly as big a problem as it was in previous years.
The Purdue report stated: ‘There are currently more than 12 million students in the United States who drink, most of which are drinking responsibly.
The researchers estimate that one in five school students is using alcohol excessively. However, they also noted that 18 percent of students were using alcohol above the legal limit.

In addition, more than 100,000 students, nearly 40 percent of whom are from low socioeconomic backgrounds, are considered binge drinkers. The figures are far higher than the official U.S. de안마finition, which was about 12 percent.
In addition, there was an additional 2 percent among students who were under the age of 18 at the time of the sample.
