Study: Adult Binge Drinkers Prefer Beer, Teens Prefer Liquor

Posted at FOXNews.com.

Binge drinkers are more likely to have a beer can in hand than a shot glass, new research shows.

Unless you are talking about teens. They prefer liquor.

The stereotype-shattering findings are reported in two studies by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Access may play a major role in the choices of the two age groups, experts suggested.


Asked why high school binge drinkers might prefer liquor, [Gail] DiSabatino (vice president for student affairs at Clemson University) noted studies that show many youths get their alcohol from home.

This is incredibly sad. Many parents are not only allowing their children to venture down this destructive path, they are actually providing the vehicle.
