A new study published by JAMA Pediatrics found that binge drinking is becoming more common among high schoolers—with 11 percent of kids surveyed saying they consumed 10 or more consecutive drinks in the past two weeks. The biggest culprit? Country boys.
Those who may be most prone to engage in extreme binge drinking were male, white, lived in rural areas, used other drugs, smoked cigarettes, missed school more often and had parents with a lower level of education, according to the research. More studies are needed to identify students at most risk of extreme binge drinking.
Sounds about right. YEE-HAW, ROLL TIDE.
