Booze in Movies May Fuel Teenage Drinking
Date:2/21/2012

TUESDAY, Feb. 21 (HealthDay News) -- Watching a lot of movies that feature alcohol doubles the likelihood that young teens will start drinking, and these teens are more likely to progress to binge drinking, according to a new study.

The researchers said their findings suggest that U.S. movie makers should adopt the same restrictions for alcohol-product placement as they have for tobacco.

Having parents who drank and availability of alcohol at home were associated with kids starting to drink, but not with progression to binge drinking, according to the study published online Feb. 21 in the journal BMJ Open.

However, watching movies that featured alcohol use, owning alcohol-branded merchandise, having friends who drank, and rebelliousness were all associated with both starting to drink and progression to binge drinking, the findings showed.

After they adjusted for a number of factors, the researchers concluded that teens who watched the most movies featuring alcohol were twice as likely to start drinking and 63 percent more likely to progress to binge drinking than teens who watched the fewest of such movies.

Watching movies featuring alcohol use accounted for 28 percent of the kids who started drinking and for 20 percent of those who moved on to binge drinking, the researchers noted in a journal news release. The association was not only seen with movie characters who drin
