The sobering truth about alcohol

Think you know about alcohol? Maybe not…

These images show functional activity levels in the brain of a healthy 15-year-old male nondrinker (left), and that of a 15-year-old male heavy drinker (right). Teens who admitted to heavy drinking showed much less brain activity (visible by the absence of red color) than the nondrinkers.

Brain imaging from a study by Dr. Susan Tapert, University of California – San Diego; study funded by NIAAA and NIDA.

 

Texas high school students consistently have the worst drinking habits in the country.

  • Texas is in the top 10 for 9th-12th graders alcohol use (7th) and alcohol-impaired driving (3rd).
  • 10th-highest rate of binge drinking in the U.S.
  • Nearly one in three high school students reported riding in a car with a driver who had been drinking — the highest proportion in the country.                    Source: Centers for Disease Control, 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance study
