Numerous studies and national statistics report that adolescents are involved in a significant proportion of the injuries, violence and crime that stem from binge drinking and other forms of alcohol abuse. Moreover, studies have shown that starting to drink as an adolescent has been linked with much greater risks of lifelong problem drinking.

    Multiple studies suggest that alcohol ads can have substantial influence on underage drinking attitudes and behaviors.

    "It's difficult to document experimentally," said Chung, who also directs the UCLARAND Center for Adolescent Health Promotion. "But there's not too much doubt that advertising and marketing affect the behavior of both children and adults.
