Young Girls Shouldn’t Be Drinking Anyway

For those dying to bring Pub culture to India, here is some news:

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics by the Harvard Medical School indicates that teenage drinking dramatically increases a young woman’s risk of developing breast diseases later in life. The highest correlation was among teens who drank the most frequently, but even teens who only drank once or twice a week were 1.5 times more likely than their peers to suffer from breast disease at a young age.

And the public health message is, these young girls shouldn’t be drinking anyway.

Should parents let teens drink?

  1. I would say no young person should be drinking, not just girls.

    As for parents, I wonder if parents have any say in it.. Pub culture, the way I look at it, people should be made aware of the risks and problems with drinking, but if they still chose to, as young adults, who is to stop them?
