Booze in Movies May Fuel Teenage Drinking

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
